Two of my children who were done with school got to do more school. Life school! I wanted stakes to hold up my wire off my beds that keep dogs from excavating them and removing all my flowers. I had them get the stakes and screwdriver and drywall screws. They knew what I wanted so I backed off and let them try.............and try...........and finally I did one to show them how.
They decided that it was harder then it looked.
This is what they are making.
What I did was set the new fountain on a big rock inside the water trough that was our old fountain. I used the pump from the water trough, only pumped the water into the bottom of the new fountain where it would have been if it was freestanding. Once it filled up it overflowed into the water trough perfect! The water in the base keeps it from blowing over in our strong winds.
Potatoes! More Potatoes! At least I hope. This is my potato bed. Each time the leaves reach the top of the tire you add a tire and more dirt. I am amazed at how fast they are growing. Now I wonder if they are making 'tators or just leaves that I promptly have covered.
Have you noticed EVERYTHING has wire over it in my yard? This is the ONLY way I can have a yard! Right now I even have a piece out in the middle of the yard where dogs/kids decided to dig the other day. I filled it in added some grass I was pulling up from a flower bed and covered it with a 4x4. Just to keep it in place I then parked a cart full of dirt on it for a couple of days :)
Can you see my new table? Kids are working on the other end of it. I love it. I do find the trail is crowded when large white dog sprawls in trail beside picnic table. But, he can MOVE!
Garden! About as weeded as you will ever see it. We are wanting to put chat down which will sit up hard and keep a lot of the weeds out of the walk ways. It will also look pretty with the white chat between the green plants of the beds.
That is about all that is happening here. I am blessed to get to keep grand kids today as son had a long feed trip to make today and since DIL had never been to that part of TX I suggested she grab her camera and go with him. Maybe she will get pictures of the Marfa lights! That would be SOOO cool! If not she will see a totally different type of area of TX.
