The State of our Yard

I took all the photos in the collages on Memorial Day.

The magic of digital photography in avoiding the weeds and making spaces look better. Oh me oh my, we do have weeds galore.

On Tuesday we had the pad for Dear’s shop prepped and what a lot of work it is to get the ground ready for the cement slab. We had excavators, dump trucks and a huge roller on the property working from 7:30 am until 3:30 pm. The material that they dug up to begin with was dumped into our empty pond shell. Win, win. They also took some of our rock away for another family at church who can use it. A very productive day! I’ll feature a whole post on the beginning of this project but here is one photo from Tuesday.

The roller was huge and the vibrations from it shook the whole house.

Hope the last week of May is filled with good things for all of you!

Mosaic Monday

All these photos were taken on Friday November 2nd showing my backyard visitors and the views from my kitchen window and through my front door.

We are getting more and more settled in to our new country bungalow and to country living in general.

Mosaic Monday continues with a new hostess. Thank you to Angie at Letting Go of the Bay Leaf for keeping this meme alive. It’s been a long time since I’ve participated but I’m happy to join up again. Click over to join in the fun.
