WORKING ON MY GARDEN AND POOL;

planting flowers with caileigh 012

Good evening; I hope every one had a beautiful weekend. Now this is my Son Dustin, he is trying to get the water to drain out of our pool, so we can clean it out. I just had to get a photo of him trying to suck on the hose,,,lol poor guy. But he just could not get it to run out.

As you can see he gave up, ha ha  we are draining it to clean the bottom of the pool. We almost have it, but then the hose plug' ed up the hose and stopped the draining, and could not get it started again... He did not even know I took the photo's, now I will have to show him I did a blog post on it... Only a Mother could or would post on this.... am I right???   The pool is not that dirty but it has a lot of sand on the bottom, our pump had a sand filter and poor hubby put the hoses on wrong and blew the sand in the pool. So we have been working on getting most of it out, it is looking pretty clean now. So I hope we can get it filled soon, I am so ready to jump in and float for a few hrs.

Now I did get to the  garden center and bought some tomatoes plants, so tomorrow I am going to get them planted. That is about all I am getting this year, I have been so behind on getting my garden cleaned up and weeded. So I love tomatoes and that is just about all for now.  But next year I will be planting more.  I have to find a new rose bush, to replace the one that died.  For Mothers day my daughter Chas gave me a pretty yellow rose bush the small ones, and I am going to plant it in the front yard where my light post is.

Right now it is in my cooper pot, are they not beautiful.  I almost never been able to keep them alive, but for some reason they are doing just great, so I have to get them in the ground before I do kill them.. lol;    I will take some photos when I get it in the ground to show you all where they will live for ever.........   I hope....   I read in a one of my garden mag. about a little fairy garden, it was so cute, so the spot around my lamp post I thought would make a great fairy garden. In the photo they even had a little fairy door, I will have to look it for it and take a photo of it to show you all. 

Ok now  the project I am working on is a really cute child sized wood chair. I painted it  a creamy white, and I am doing a mosaic design on it, for my oldest daughter Heather. It is going to be for her front yard, I sure hope it turns out like I see it in my head... lol  I already have two coats of paint on it, and now I have to go through all my broken china to find just the right colors, I still have some plates and bowls and a cup to brake up, I just love to take a hammer to do some busting up, it sure feels good....  ha ha  ok I am not that weird,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, really I am not......  

Well that is about it for now, so all I have left is to say a Big thank you to all of you for your lovely and sweet comments, which I so love to receive and read. I am so Blessed to have such wonderful friends such as you all.  So until next time; God Bless;

Hugs;

Oh, those roses are gorgeous! The caterpillars have been munching on most of my rose bushes this year. Ugh! There are so many of them. Anyway, thanks for sharing and have a great week! ; )

Hi Alaura,

Hope you can get your pool all cleaned out and filled back up. We have been using ours constantly since Lexi has already been out of school for about 3 weeks! It has even warmed up where I am now swimming in it! Your yellow rose is BEAUTIFUL! Can't wait to see where you plant it.♥

Good evening Alaura...

Your rose is soooo pretty. I love yellow in the garden...it sort of makes everything else pop, doesn't it? I just got some yellow roses too...hopefully we'll BOTH be able to keep them alive!

Poor cleaning is such a chore, but I do miss my pool.

Those roses look lovely! I'm looking forward to the photos!

Have a great week!

Alaura,

What a great post. I love the pics of the pool being filled up ~ hysterical.

I wish my clematis was taking off as well as yours, although I must say my garden is doing really well. It rained all week, so all my seeds are sprouting and everything is quite happy. Now for some sun tomorrow hopefully.
