just another day

Good morning.
Yesterday was wet and dreary, so no yard work. Instead, I cleaned the inside of the mo-ho, and restocked essential supplies for our next trip.
I also worked on the hydraulic jack that just doesn't want to come up. I have to physically pry it up, and last trip it was a mosquito fest. So I went online to figure out solutions. I've had this problem pretty much since we bought it in 2005, and I've tried various sprays and nothing seems to work. So one thing I read was to fully extend the jack, wipe off the cylinder, and spray with silicone spray. I did that 3 times, and still nothing. Oh well, It's just another to do thingy when we pack up. Maybe I'll look into having it replaced at the end of the season. I'm sure it won't be cheap.
And although I haven't said anything here on my blog, Our Michigan State basketball coach, had been entertaining an offer to go to the pro's. It's been a big thing locally in the news for nearly 2 weeks. Well, he's decided to stay here much to every ones relief. He's a top notch coach that's taken the basketball program to national status. That's if you follow college basketball. We went to the final four last year. And every player who stay 4 years has played in a final four. Better than any other college in the nation.
Okay, enough chatter, I know you want to see more pics of the yard, so here we go....

A couple of roses,

Clematis mingling with a honeysuckle vine above, and Clematis on both sides of the arbor.
And finally, a mass planting of Stella D'Oro in the front side yard around a banded grass with golden barberry, mugo pine, and a purple leaf sand cherry.

Now I'm off to get ready for another busy work week!
