Wood Working

This week among the crochet projects, and planting soybeans, I squeezed in a wood project.  I made this little shelf for in the stairs that helped cover a big crack in the wall of "this ole house".  Did the trick and gave me an excuse to bring out some things to put on it that had been in the attic for a while....which is why I.never get rid of anything!!! 
It's been a productive week !! Now if we could just get a nice shower of rain.....

Frosty Morning

People say to wait till after Mother's Day to put out flowers and things so there is no danger of frost......not the case this year !!!

Mulch Time

I had one flower bed I didn't get around to mulching last fall so I tackled it the other day.
Thought maybe it would sweat out this cold I have.....
.....didn't work but the mulch turned out nice so at least I accomplished something.
There is some corn poking up in those brown fields in the background. Hope the frost they are calling for tonight doesn't hurt it !!
I found these pretty "Million Bells" the other day and thought they would look nice in the tractor planter.  Sure love the colors of them.  They will look nice into the fall when the mums are blooming (hopefully) around them.

Flower time

It's been so nice the last few days I couldn't resist emptying out the greenhouse....
....and putting out the tractor planter that Rick got me for my birthday.
Starting a "few" mum cuttings.....
...and getting rid of a big pest !!!
