Finally with the SUN

WOO HOO finally we have some nice weather. So I headed outside, here is my quad with the little wagon we use. Fleeta really wanted to come with me and if she would have stayed with me I would have let her out but heaven only knows what kind of mischief she would have gotten into! lol
So I headed up to the Aspen trees to pick up rock and weed. Paul planted these last year on the 'ridge' of our property, thus the name of our place is 'Aspen Ridge' :)
Here is our 'rock pile' we have these all over the property and the 1st year we picked up soooo many it was crazy. But each year it is less and less (thank heavens) Dad and I did manage to gather 3 wagons, love that it has a dump feature. Makes unloading it so much easier, plus we found if you don't overload it the wheels won't go flat. ha ha Oh my yes we learned that one the hard way!
Love the way wildflowers grow in such a scattered random pattern. I try an mimic this randomness but it always looks forced. Seems I do not have the artistic flair that God has :)Here is a closeup of these dainty little flowers, they are tiny but in a mass they are quite beautiful. I spent the rest of my day hand watering this years crop of trees, TID comes on the 2nd of May THANK HEAVENS!!! It takes forever to water cause you can't turn the water on to high or it will take all the dirt out of the grow bag and you have to fill it up at least twice. But on a beautiful day it really is a nice mindless way to spend some time outdoors. Well that was my Saturday, Sunday was spent cleaning house. You know the kind where you wipe down all the cabinets and get down on your knees and scrub. Not nearly as nice as being out in the beauty of the day but I sure am glad to have it done!!!

I really enjoy seeing your photos of your place....it's like a trip to a vacation!

I don't understand the rocks? Where are they coming form that you have to gather them every year?

Love the photos! Sounds like we were two birds of a feather - cleaning and doing yardwork on Saturday - it never ends! But your yard is prettier and bigger than mine - I think I would have been outside if I lived where you do! Have a great day! :)

Hey Brooke. You have been hiding the rocks from me!!! You know everytime I came to Ashland to visit Sarah, I drove her crazy with, "we have to go out and look for Rocks".... Now you'll have to come over and get some more furniture for the shop, (so you can bring me some rocks!!) lol...lol

I loved the page you made for your mom. It's so beautiful!!

luv ya,
Faith

Love your set-up. I think we need the cart you have, ours doesn't have the dump feature - love that!
Pete spent all weekend mowing, rock wall, mowing, rock wall. He couldn't get enough of the beautiful weather.
After all the scrapping it was get some wash and cleaning done around the house, girl!
