For some reason, I keep learning stuff about this technological world I did not know I needed to know. Someone suggested it was easier to build a blog page in Windows Live, so I had to try it. We will see where this little experiment takes me!
Decided to do a little cutting back and clean up in the front yard since it was such a nice day………I’ll include a few photos (part of the Windows Live learning curve) of my front yard. Last year, with the help of my son and husband, I completely remodeled the front yard. No more lawn, many more plants. Ron and Jeff’s dug out and laid this shale walkway from the front door to my small raised bed vegetable garden.
I made this piece of yard art out of three metal rings that held an old half barrel together. Simply drilled a hole on each end and bolted them together. Then I hung a large bell in the middle. I like it.
This is the center mound with a very small fig tree in the middle, to the left of the sundial. Also, planted three mini, will only get 18” tall, blueberries on the mound.
There is a landscape rose, some lavender, wooly thyme and other ground covers on the mound, too.
I have many more photos but I’ll spare you………..for now.

I have never drawn animals. Young girls often love to draw horses and dogs, I loved to draw and design clothes for the paper dolls I drew! Now, I want to draw dogs, really! So, I spent this afternoon drawing my pal, Jack. Here's the photo I took and the drawing from it, I changed the angle of his head in the drawing otherwise his ears looked too short.
