So Tara, Charley and I headed out to run errands early Thursday morning. After the little errands were out of the way and of course lunch :) we headed to Lowe's!! Ah, I have never had 3 shopping carts at Lowe's before, so this was a first. Of course if things were not so bulky or heavy, I am sure I would not have needed that many. We got flowers, pavers, bags of sand, potting soil, 1 x 4's and of course a cute toy for Charley. It is a puzzle type of a deal with tools. He loves tools!! After loading up the truck I had to stop at the feed store. Poor guy, it seems as I am always making it hard for him to load the feed. This time he had to put it around the wood, bags of sand and plants. So, we headed home and I got to unload all of it. I had to do the pavers first and see how it made the new seating area look. I love it! I now need to get some color in the seating area - so off to Wal-Mart I will go today to see if they have any fun stuff for the yard. Oh, and get this, Lowe's is all out of the squirrel chairs - can you believe it! And no, it is not a sign - ha - they will get more in!
I planted my plants and rearranged the flower beds. I had to sit in the new seating area and see if I like the new look. I did rearrange some more after I took this picture and I also realized I forgot to buy a plant for the planter by the front door - will have to see what they have at Wal-Mart so I can finish up with all my planting.
This is called a butterfly bush and this is why. The butterflies love it! I was so happy that they stayed there long enough for me to get a picture. I have some humming bird feeders out as well, 2 humming birds so far, but I can't ever keep them there long enough to enjoy watching them or take their picture.
I was able to finish up the side flower bed and have plants by the back door as well.
Now the horseshoe pit is really ready - come on over and play!! Let me just end by telling you this, be very thankful that you can't smell through the computer because after I was done with all the loading, unloading, moving pavers, hauling bags of sand and off loading the horse feed - ah - I smelled awful! You know it's bad when you can't stand to be around yourself - ha!
