We took down our above ground 18 ft round pool and deck.I wanted to do something beside grass,I allready had the flowers around the deck part.The pool sat on blue board instead of sand for 16 years.I left the blue board there so the grass would not come up through the ground and had gravel brought in.Then I had my friend help me with some ideas.She had an old kitchen wood stove and asked if I wanted it for the garnden and I said yes,I had everything else.The only thing that is new is the fire pit,whcih we have enjoyed very much.I had the kitchen wood stove going and made a pan of biscuts in it.

Great idea for a patio area, love it. Old stoves like that restored cost thousands of dollars, I have one I use in my mudroom for storing boots, tools etc, someday I would love to have it restored.

What a view you have! That stove idea is really fun, I would want to put a tin roof over it to keep it out of the elements its so cool. A nice comfortable and fun place you have created...

It is so hard to imagine snow now for me. We have had a crazy warm Winter down here. The first half of January had us in the mid 80-s and things are budding out that should not be right now...

It won't be long before a true Spring for us all!

The bird I call my Mr. Cardinal just swooped down for a bath in one birdbath. I only have one they will use for bathing.
I need to get a couple more the right depth like this one is. Now Mrs. Cardinal is bathing. I am going outside to work but I won't disturb their bath time. Its about 9:35 AM so they are early today. In hot weather its usually 4 o'clock when they come to bath. I think they have a clock in their little brains.

Our cows (about 8) know exactly when its time to feed and start bellowing at 5PM. Animals often outsmart humans.

Green, do you have any little fishies in your cauldron pond? Also, looks like an ideal place for water lillies.

We have had unusually warm winter so far. My brugs have bloomed constantly. Feb. may get a couple of cold snaps then I bring out the landscape blankets to cover everything i can. Firespike has been blooming since early spring. Poinsettas
are blooming also.
