Mothers Day

Mothers are special as you all know. Becki and I were able to go to Miami today to visit my Mother and Charles. We all went to church and it was great to see "The Church" the people that I know well. The Miami Volunteer Fire Department cooked ribeye steaks with the trimmings for lunch and a fund raiser. I was able to see even more home folk there. I miss the wide open spaces. You can meet God on those plains.

Sorry I didn't take any pictures, but it was a beautiful day across the Panhandle! Very green and it was wonderful being on the East side again.

Hope you were able to remember your Mother today. If she fills your heart like mine does you are good for another year.

Love you Mom...

Waiting paitently

After the gardening I was going to dive into this project. Plans are to detail and paint while the motor is out. Too late in the day to get that dirty so I played golf instead.
Golf weather could not have been better. I shot a 41-45 for a 86 total. I was happy with that!
Got home, grilled some chicken and called it a day.

First Roses

These two rose bushes are the first at this house.

I picked a spot where the grass was not growing well and found out why. I unearthed some really big HARD rocks in this spot. Becki was not pleased with the location, but after the rock work I just couldn't change. Problem is they can't be seen from the upper yard. - That's why you stroll through the garden.

Yard day

Time to get the GREEN on. I'm trying a Dogwood tree there in the corner. Planted an unusal varigated Hibicus there on the left. In the middle I transplanted a couple of geraniums that we did our best to kill in the house - we'll see.
