Random yard pics


Here is a pic of the first part of our pond with the blue colorant in it. I have spent so much time placing and replacing rocks all over. Next step (if we can get a rain free weekend) weeding and mulching!


Grapevine to the left and blueberries in front. See the garden to the left? I hope to get some good pics of it this weekend. Again, if I can get outside and not have to tiptoe through the raindrops.


Our new pet . . . NOT

My husband and I have a wildlife camera and a deer feeder that we enjoy so much as it shows us the deer that live on our property and how they evolve in life. Right now, there are two doe's that are preggars and ready to drop at any time so having this camera allows us to see when these oh so proud mama's begin sharing their babies with nature. However, we seem to have a little problem with our feeder right now as our new pet has officially ripped the feeder down and mangled it. The camera is still up and we are hoping that this stupid bear hasn't ruined the feeding schedule of mama bring out her new babies. I hope we get some good shots of them!

"M" is for the million things she gave me,

"O" means only that she's growing old,

"T" is for the tears she shed to save me,

"H" is for her heart of purest gold;

"E" is for her eyes, with love-light shining,

"R" means right, and right she'll always be,Put them all together, they spell

Grow ~ Plants ~ Grow

JD and I have gotten everything planted in the garden.
50 Pepper plants (mixture)
36 Tomato plants (mixture)
Onions, Radishes, 2 types of lettuce, Sweet Corn, Popcorn, Peas, Navy beans, Green beans, potatoes, squash, zucchini, pickler cucumbers and cucumbers






whew. . . I think thats it.
It is so fun to see vegetation breaking through the soil yearning for some good ole' sunshine. Whoops, wait a minute . . . what sunshine? Hopefully we will see some soon.
On another note, after the loss of my MIL, my work was so thoughtful. They sent a huge peace lilly to the funeral home which we managed to bring home and the location I work at bought us four strawberry plants and a peach tree. I feel so lucky to be working with such great people!

Yes, I am starting to really enjoy living in Southwest VA.
Thanks again to everyone for their kind words and prayers during our families recent loss. You all are very special to us!!!
