Spring Cleanup

Pin It The nice weather has prevented me from posting and I apologize to those who wondered where I have been.

The nice weather has melted all our snow, dried up the mud and we are now into spring cleanup.

Luke spent day chopping wood for our outdoor firepit. There are alot of evenings we sit in front of the fire enjoying the evening under the stars.
The weather has been perfect for cleaning up my flowerbeds, preparing the garden and cleaning up the yard. Each spring we still have scrap that makes it's way to the surface each year.
A few days ago, our scrapper Mike showed up and cleaned up quite a bit for us. He makes a dollar and we enjoy seeing the scrap leave the yard.
While Mike was picking the scrap, we discovered an old watering trough which I saved and plan on planting flowers in it. Luke also found an old steel milk can which I will paint and add a nice splash of color to the front yard with flowing petunias in it.
The days are becoming longer which gives us much opportunity to work outside. I love these days. Actually, the other day when Luke and Bob were on the four wheeler, they came across a deer having a baby. When I went back to take pictures for you, she was already gone.... I was so disappointed! I was hoping to share the miracle of birth with you.
I hope that each of you have a great day and remember to give your loved ones a hug! =)


  1. I must be lovely to have the weather warming up, It is starting to cool here...I so love this time of year.
    It is a pity you didn't get the deer photos.
    Have a great day

  2. You have been missed Debbie, but I think a lot of us are all wrapped up in getting outdoors after this long winter & 'dig in the dirt'.

    Happy Easter!
    Have a great day.
    TTFN ~ Hugs, Marydon

  3. I have a steel cream can and painted it white..I usually plant cascading pink petunias in it and it stands on the veranda beside the front door. I change the contents of the can to go with the seasons.
    What will you be planting in the trough?
    Oh that would have been so neat to see the miracle of a deer being born.
    Enjoy your bonfires..we love them too:)

  4. Ahhh Spring! Nothing like a good spring clean up to get the blood pumping!

  5. Yes, I missed you!!! Glad you're back....don't you just love the awakening land? So much to do and see and smell. Lots of work to do, but it's a good kind of work. Enjoy spring!


  6. Hello Debbie, thought it was a bit quiet around here. Glad to have you back.

    Our weather is still really warm and I am looking forward to the cooler days of Autumn.

    Nothing like a good ole Spring clean, it's good for the soul.

    Take care now,

  7. Debbie, I've been wondering where you were, but figured you are like me, busy, and outside in the nice weather. Hope you are doing well, I think of you everytime I hand a load of laundry on the line, lovin' my clothes pin bags!


  8. We just had srappers out to our farm a few weeks ago. Now that the last of the snow has melted, they are going to make another trip, as more came to the surface.

  9. Hi Debbie..yes you were missed :0)
