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.
It got dropped unloading off a trailer and was bend up,it smokes awful from the top plates,you would not want it in your home.I would love something like that in my home to.My grandmother had one just like that except hers had warming ovens on the top.This one has the tank on one end for hot water.I seen one the oher day and it was $1200.00
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.
