All things Christmas on Christmas blog

Tuesday, June 7, 2016


On my way out to have coffee before I start the yard chores again.  I think I will name my home 'weedville'.  That seems to be all we ever do , not so you could tell it though.

Bottom of our steps

two planters on either side with seeds I put in of wildflower packet
I added the petunia

looking to the creek to pick a few swamp magnolia blooms

Highly fragrant

at the garage and the only way I ever wanna see one

A Christmas gift for Steve.   He saw this at the "Refunk it" shop here in Ashland.
Made from a variety of metal parts from tools of some sort.  The jaws look like they are made from post hole diggers.

Back to inside to get something done,  getting a little warm in the sun
