Spring is Peeping Through

It is so windy here right now, that 
things are blowing across the yard!  
If either of the big trees... black walnut or maple come down...
we are going to call it serendipity and go with the flow, we've already decided! 

Look what's coming up?  The iris, the tulips, the hyacinths, 
the crocus, and I hope and pray the hostas that we 
planted in Joel and Brandon's memories. We are taking those two hostas 
with us. 

And those little tiny curlicues in the center of this picture are one of them.

But look what was going on at Home Depot when I ran in for spackle and a putty knife!  Yowsa!!!!

Here's Mr. Harrison of Harrison Fencing in Basehor, Kansas, 
working on our fence today.  He had a cold, breezy day yesterday, and 
a very windy day today, but he is making progress. 

This gives you a better idea of where it is.  We just do not have the money to fence the entire acre at this point. 

Our yard actually goes all the way to the pole on the left.  
Maybe someday. 

Nice level place for a garden, isn't it? 


  1. it sure looks like a good start. it is so flat there. i live on top of a mountain so everywhere i go it is nothing but hills. you almost get a nosebleed going from one of my gardens to another.

  2. Can't wait to see what you do with that piece of earth. I'm sure something good will definitely come out of it!

  3. Gosh, that is a nice piece of land,,, plenty room for a garden bed.
    The fence looks really nice.! Its just perfect and nice and strong looking too
    It windy here and lots of pouring rain, and mud slides at the ocean!

  4. Mary Ann,

    I can see a beautiful garden out in that back yard. Don't work to hard with finishing up things in your move.

  5. Oh that is plenty big for the dogs...that fence is would die laughing if you would see our cobbled up fence.

  6. You have a lot of space! It will be fun to see what all you do with it...I'm sure there will be raised bed gardens somewhere in there!

  7. Yay for the fence!!!!

    A blank slate to paint with new projects!

  8. Looks like a great yard for your dogs and chickens! Starting from scratch presents so many opportunities. I'm curious which direction your backyard faces.

  9. The dogs will love that, won't they? I guess they aren't climbers? We had a dog once that would have scaled that fence in short order. Her climbing/wandering brought her to a sad end on the highway west of us! Are you getting things put away in the house?


I love comments!
