~~Kite Flying Picnic & Birthday Flowers~

My Lovely Birthday Flowers ~~

Dumpster diving once again - I pulled out this flat of wheat grass! Right out of a dumpster!
I've watered it every day since Monday & it's growing very fast.....don't know what I'll do with it but I think it looks like Spring!

SO Pretty! Spring!

Complete pond make-over with new liner......the spring flowers will soon pop up all around it ~~

Wonderful day for a picnic - in the 80's, nice & warm ~~

Gorgeous day ~~ pretty kite ~~

The wild plum trees in full bloom ~~ we pulled up & brought home a couple of little ones ~~ the bees are loving them ~~

The "Home Comfort" Treasure dug up from our yard ~~

On Monday I turned another year older & just look at my Beautiful Birthday Flowers from my sweet Mom & Dad! I LOVE Daffodils, Petunias, & Snapdragons & the colors are so bright & pretty & they smell so good!

We've been really busy lately with lots of projects & with spring just about here we're spending lots more time outside now. Last week we had to completely renovate our pond because the liner was leaking. It was a huge job emptying it & re-doing it but now it's so clean & pretty & the spring flowers should come up soon all around it.

After finishing the pond re-do we rewarded ourselves with a nice relaxing & fun picnic & flew kites. On our way home we grabbed up a couple of little wild plum trees. TZ chose a spot behind the beehives to plant them & dug up an amazing treasure out of the ground. It's a metal cooling shelf from an old Home Comfort Stove. We've dug up tons of old bottles & other little treasures from all around our house & woods in our 5 years here but this was THE neatest "find"! Since our house was built in 1891 it could be very, very old!

Feels like spring here already! In the 80's again today & I have flowers to plant!!
