Yes, we've been busy and have had some fun too.
I love seeing the blooming plants. This is one of my peonies. I enjoyed it for only a day or two. Then it rained and winds blew. Following that, the petals were on the ground. It did make for a pretty pink fluffy display.
Our raspberry and blackberry bushes we planted last fall are growing and spreading. We will probably have blackberries this year. Can't say the same for the blueberries.
A major problem here are the Carpenter bees. It takes a sincere effort to get rid of them. Those little critters can really move. It was difficult to get a good shot.
But easy to capture the sawdust they leave.
And the damage they do,
We are still busy with Boondockers. Number 130 just left, 131 will be leaving shortly. I love this setup. Even their pups enjoyed their short stay.
One of our recent guests took a lot of aerial pictures of our property. I like this one especially.
We had a special treat when our dear friends Darlene and Jim on their trip from Florida and Pennsylvania. They pulled out yesterday morning.
They plan to return in October as they will be completely retired by then. While here Jim helped Leonard set up a firepit for the RV area.
And he made good use of the little chain saw that daughter Terri and SIL Steve gave us.
Darlene did a lot of cooking while Jim helped Leonard around the property such of picking up branches, repairing the ramp to the lawnmower shed and repairs to a wooden bench.
We managed to have fun too. We finally got them over to the Rattlesnake Saloon in Tuscumbia about 65 miles from us. The Rattlesnake Saloon is built under cave. Customers park and then are transported down a steep hill by a pickup truck that has benches built into the bed of the truck. That, in itself, is an adventure. Jim and Darlene preparing for the ride down.
We love this place.
Mothers Day Sunday we were treated to lunch at Sons Lennies and DIL Lois' house. Lennie makes the BEST burgers as Jim would tell you.
Three Moms. Me, Lois and Darlene.
After Darlene and Jim left yesterday I mowed the front yard and the RV areas prior to our current guests arrival. Len decided to bush hog the area behind the RV sites and stain the picnic table we bought a few weeks ago.
Now we are quite proud of the RV area. We provide electric, water, sewer, trash can, firepit with seating and firewood and a picnic table for our guests. What more could one want?
Until next time.
