We have had some great weather during the week of our Spring Break. My son spent most of it on a school trip to Washington DC and the surrounding area. He got back last night. He loved his trip and Virginia.
While he was gone my husband and I took the dogs for a little day trip to Caprock Canyons. Did you know that there is a herd of Buffalo that are descendants of Buffalos owned by Charles Goodnight in the canyon. I got a photo of them, but I didn’t close so just know all the brown blobs are Buffalos.
The girls were hot and didn’t like the Canyon.
I tried a high density filter on my camera, but I don’t like how unnatural the sky looks with it.
It was a nice day and good for us to spend some time with nature.
We have also done some work around the house. I have started cleaning out the garage and my husband got the front yard mowed and edged. I bought some top soil and grass seed to fix the bare spots in the back yard. That grass always gives me trouble.
Today I worked on the front flower bed. I trimmed up the shrubs and plants and cleaned up the leaves.
I also planted a few Pansies and Violas.
I put the Violas in a large container I keep on the porch. I added a little stone looking bunny I have had forever and I made a chalkboard sign using a paint stirring stick and a wooden plaque I had as well.
When the flowers grow some more I know they will look much better in the container, but it is fun for now to have a little bit of spring in the front yard.
I will be working on the horrible back yard flower beds soon. The weeds have taken over back there. I ordered a small electric bed tiller that I hope helps me keep them under control.
I will have to let you know how it works.
Have you been getting things ready in your yard now that it is getting warmer?
I have a funny dog pic to leave you before I go.
My husband was sitting on the couch loving on Harley and Izzy came and sat on his head. That dog cracks me up.
