I can't help myself. I have many projects going on with business and inside my home, but my LOVE is working outside at the moment. This spring is so delicious. Is it because of the extreme , cold, harsh winter? Maybe. But the blossoms, the colors, the fragrance, the grass- all are looking like I'm viewing it for the first time.
My husband and I are working on an enormous project of fencing our pool yard. We have had chain link that I painted black (lipstick on a pig?) but with recent wobbly posts and a dilapidated gate, we had to make emergency repairs which led to a total re-do.
This is way more than 2
aging people (in our 60's but feeling 100 with this hard labor) should have undertaken, but we are game. We were remarking today how working on our 6 acre mini farm has been the joy, in addition to raising our kids here, of our last 20 years. We love this place.
Hubs encountered a nest of bees who had bored holes in the brick and was stung multiple times, poor guy. I'm allergic, so he always "minds the bees".
I got to put my wood carving skills to work, a topic I loved in college art classes, and haven't used much since, until today. Im ready to start carving logs!
Partial fence up. Thank God we have to wait 'til fall or next spring to paint it all, since the wood has to cure.
Lots of dwarf boxwoods being planted this spring in all my pots. I'm opting for greenery all year long as opposed to short lived flowers, although I will incorporate some on our deck and around the pool.
What are you up to lately? I hope you have a wonderful, sunny and spring filled week. We are expecting tornadoes and rain here in Northern VA. mid week- of all the piggy things, my kids used to say! This extreme weather fluctuation around here is wild. Hang tight, the promise of summer is around the corner.
Congratulations to Bethany and her family on Seamus's dog show winnings this weekend. They are spending the spring "campaigning" him on the weekend dog show circuit to build his championship points!
