a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

I Keep Avoiding That Fern Bed...

I'm not sure why.  Maybe by the time it's in the shade I'm already exhausted from something else.  I worked on the water garden with the big rocks Hubby brought me.  You can hear the water as you sit in the swing on the screen porch.  This is a smaller garden but Bonnie loves it anyway.  So do all the dogs.  That's one reason I had to work on it today.
I spread the ash pile from all the limbs and stump we burned.  No luck with the fire lasting this long but I do have another pile ready to burn.
I couldn't shake the feeling I was being watched.  There's the culprit! I could feel his eyes on me.  I was messing with his play house.
Bonnie and Lizzy approved the sitting rock.  They inspected every thing I did.  Bonnie wanted to know if I had fish.  I lied.  I told her absolutely not.
Tested by all.  Approved.  Of course they are the reason I had to work on it in the first place.  Don't tell them about the Koi. 
The water is now fresh and clear.  Rock replaced.  We'll see how long that lasts.

ha,ha love it - the photos are great and Bonnie looks quite happy in there. I would love to create something like this, if TM wants to drop over with his tractor n some big rocks. Have a wonderful day - hugz to Marcy n all. Its been 109 temps the past few days - it never gets that hot here?

Looking good . . . not sure how you'll keep Bonnie out of there though. I think she has marked that cool water HER place . . . Hope some rest happens for you on the Fourth!

you live an interesting and creative life embroidered with all the critters that surround you.
I think I am back now. Been in the hospital with pneumonia, home now with lots of lovely meds to make me more of a wack job than I already am.
I'll enjoy catching up on the tales of your neck of the woods. xoxo OMa Linda (officially able to breathe again)

You are a miracle worker and I just don't know how you do it and where in the name of god you get all that energy. You must have the muscles of a truck driver. I stand in awe of you, did you know that?

Who or what IS that under the big flat rock? Maybe a cat?

I love all the rocks and ponds. Don't you have to laugh when you look up and see Bonnie watching with that face of her's? She is so cute!
