Stormy Weather and Sanford and Son...What?

Today we had a pretty strong storm rip threw here. It was not a Tornado, but it packed some serious high winds. Several branches in the back yard came down so Kelly took advantage of it and did some additional trimming as well.  We also had a eye sore spot where we had piled some junk in the back yard and it was time to get it cleaned up.  As you can see I have containers and birdhouses just piled around :( - Not a good thing.

In the picture above you can see the old bird bath just filled with ORANGE water? That bird bath is going to turn into something pretty soon! It is actually a broken fountain, but Kelly has a wonderful idea about bringing it up front and planting in it. I think we are going to go with it. 

On to the other cleaning we did that day, below. Check out this mess. I am almost too embarrassed to post this here, but it does get cleaned up and needs to be shown. I hear the Sanford and Son music playing in the background when I look at this mess, lo. Maybe it will shame me enough never to do this again!! It was beginning to look like a junk yard - GAHHH.


So much better, ahhhhhh. This needed to be done so badly. Now this area is not done and there is still a lot more that needs to be done here, but this is a great start! 

Can't ask for more than this! Now at least Sanford and Son won't be moving into my backyard any time soon.
