Father's Day, Flowers, & Garden Boxes!!

Lot's of busy things happening around Mema & Papa's house!! We have had just incredible weather for late spring and almost summer! Rain just when we need it and some lovely cooler temps than usual for this time of the year.  It has been great for growing things and outside activities.

Relaxing with good conversation!!

Don't let that other guy fool you, this is the real Dave, not a serious bone in his body, lol!!!

Bob's garden boxes overflowing!  We will be eating cukes, squash, and maybe some tomatoes in a week or two.




A stormy evening recently.


When we moved here 13 years ago this other than 1 cedar tree was the only big tree in the yard, and I love trees, so over the years we have planted more trees, fruit and shade.



That lone tree now has maple, pine, and fruit trees growing near it.  Every time we get a windstorm, I think the old tree is going to go, and we lose lots of limbs from it.  I think in the old prairie days these big cottonwoods were called widow makers because they were so bad about losing limbs in storms!

 

We also planted all the hedges in front of the house, and a crabapple and flowering plum tree
We added a double garage, and there is a fairly large cellar under the garage floor which we have used several times over the years!!
