Ah yes, Spring

Sorry I haven't posted lately,
but it was an extremely busy work week.
But we are having a beautiful weekend.
70 degrees yesterday.
It appears Spring is finally here to stay.
We did our first mowing of the season.
The late blast of winter weather killed the flowers
on my Star magnolia, and also burnt the leaf tips
of many perennials, so not a real pretty Spring.

But I'll take what I can get,
and that's the nice weather.
The Hyacinth came thru pretty good
and the tulips are just now
starting to bloom.
I'm just beginning to clean all the perennial beds.

And have been dividing and potting
plants for my plant sale later this Spring.
Need to raise some extra cash for our
gas hungry Motor Home.
Would you believe we get 8mpg?
But even at that, it's cheaper than staying in a hotel!

I also spent most of yesterday un-winterizing the mo-ho.
We had to put antifreeze thru out the water system, so the pipes wouldn't freeze. The mo-ho is just like having a cottage. It's literally a house on wheels. Has everything a home has. Just extremely compact!

And we had our first outdoor grilling, Pork Kabobs with Red, Yellow, and Green Peppers, Onions, Pineapple, that we then served over Rice.

More yard pics as the yard springs forth!


  1. Grilling out is next on our agenda. It hit 80 here today. Time to wash the car, too. Enjoy the UV rays.

  2. Dang, that's quite a spread (I'm talking about your potted plants for your plant sale!)
    So, when's the first mo-ho trip now?

  3. And what adventurous lands will the mo-ho take you to this year?

  4. Your garden/yard looks fabulous...I love it...Just wish I was there having some 'Pork' and a good grilling...Umm did I say that right?

  5. The kabobs sounds yummy.....Is it so wrong to get totally (sexually) turned on when you read about good food?

    Glad to hear you are finally getting better weather(better even than San Diego, right now). Flowers are gorgious! Enjoy the mojo...

    8MPG sounds pretty good. I thought it would be gallons to the mile.
    Fantastic! ^_^

    We've been mowing for a couple of weeks now despite the cold snap. :P
    I lost a couple of tomato plants and some marigolds, but they have been replaced.

    *hugs* to you both. <3


  8. Re: Lewis: funny comment. Yes, I'll be there for left overs.
