Yardwork!!

Category: Yard work! | Posted: Wed May 09, 2007 7:20 pm

I finally finished working on the grape arbor. We haven't done much with it since we moved here and there was a lot of dead wood and the vines were growing every which way. One is way up a tree and I left it there. But, I cut out all of the dead wood and tied up the vines hanging down and moved some that were escaping the arbor. The ones on the fence were trying to go up a tree so I pulled them down and tied them to the fence. We want to turn the little back yard into a patio area. dr is going to build Chance a deck under the grape arbor to replace the old dog house. She can see the alley from there and keep an eye out for things that don't belong. She barks them away. We are thinking of putting up an awning of sorts and putting our lawn table and chairs under it. We bought a gas grill and dr got it all put together. We just have to get a gas bottle for it. But, we thought if we were going to cook out there we should be able to eat out there too. We'll need to get some of those candles for mosquitos and bugs. We don't get too many mosquitos here because it is pretty dry. Maybe we'll get some river rock to put in the area. That's what we put in the front patio. I need to make some cushions for the bench that's there. I can put some of my potted plants there and it will look nice. That little candle lantern thing we bought at one of the yard sales will go nice out there on the table. We sat out there and had breakfast the other morning. But during the day the sun is hot there. There is just so many things that need to be done and I still have to go slow because of my knee. It is a lot better but still going to fast and doing too much makes it ache at night. So, I'm done for today except for work tonight. 5:30-9pm today. Well, I bought some begonia's and petunias last night when we went for patio blocks to set the grill on. I guess I should put them in pots. That's not work, is it? I should water the small tomato plants since it's getting hot and they are in the sun. I think I should move them where it's not so sunny all day. Until they get a bit bigger anyway. That might be termed work though so maybe I will just water them today. Chance gets worried when we start changing things around but this will give her more shade during the day, too. The orioles are getting used to us being out and around the area and were sitting in the grapevines while I was trying to work there. They were mainly worried because the feeder was empty. They empty that big feeder everyday. I should buy sugar by the 50 lb bag instead of a 5 lb bag. The little hummingbird feeders don't go empty so fast unless the orioles try to eat out of them. I think I will go and see what dr is doing now. He went back outside. It's too hot to do much outside now. Dooley
