This morning my husband mowed and trimed the yard, while my Mom and I pulled vines from the bushes and weeded my oyster plants that I dearly love! They are wonderful for Florida living...don't need water...can survive in droughts wonderfully! Anyway...we bagged up about 9 trash bags of junk pulled out!!! I was exhausted...took 4 Ibuprophen and sat under the tree and had a beloved Fresca while cooling down. In no particular order here are a few pics I took. This first one is a pic of the sky from under the tree...it almost looks like a picture of water, doesn't it? Wispy clouds looked so pretty floating by while we enjoyed the cool breeze!
Here are my dirty feet relaxing.
And here is Doozeys cousin, Bailey. He is my brother and his wifes Lhasa. He is a lot of fun...the dogs would run over to the fence barking every time they saw anyone pass by on the sidewalk! They spent half the time inside and half out...enjoying their chewy sticks.
This is a tether ball pole my Dad made for my son (the Army son) when he was around 4years old! It is concrete poured inside a tire...(Oh crap...another tire in my life...I hadn't thought of it before)...LOL. The pole is sunk in the concrete. The old ball and rope are long gone...so a new rope and ball is on my shopping list to buy for my grandson...we will play many games together as a family. I think he should be able to beat me...he is so strong at almost 5 years old!
The new fence...after I cut back thse bushes severely...I must get the fertilizer on them and lots of water. I have one neighbor who got these things up 6 ft. in a short amount of time...I must go ask how they did it...I suspect just frequent fertilizer and tons of water though. I wish I could think of the name of this plant, but it is not coming to me. I have every other one variegated...but I need to replace a few that were damaged.
As we were sitting, relaxing, my Mom noticed the bird nest on top of my security light...complete with bird! How sweet! I am thrilled...must keep an eye on the progress!
Daughter and I are on our way to Penneys now to look for summer shorts and tops, and any other fun thing I can find for my grandbabies!!! Happy summer days to all!
