Our little "Jungle"

Yes we are still here, just on the run! Like most of  you too.
Pa's Shop is pretty much up and running and so our focus has been changed to our little "jungle".
The former owner planted some beautiful flowers, however, the only thing to eat in the yard is walnuts from our 2 walnut trees.
He also liked to plant lots of plants side by side..Thus our little jungle.
So, we got busy and went to the back yard and added Raised Bed garden #1, which has our tomatoes.
In the little holes of the cinder block is radishes and onions!  Notice all the plants in the corner where the brown is.  There are 6 huge plants there... Lol. All but 2 are going away.. On the other side of the porch is our 2nd raised bed garden. Needs filled with dirt, but we will have our peppers, and other things, in the little holes goes our garlic.
Also garden #3 for the year will go about where the wheel barrow is... next year we will put one (raised bed) on the other side of the house for our green beans.
There is a pretty plant growing in the back right now too.
Our little light purple Clematis!
We have lots of pretty ones in bloom in the front yard.
Dark purple Iris
Pink/Purple and white Columbine.
White, light and Medium purple Iris.
Yellow Columbine.
And next to that a purple and white Columbine.
In the front we have a bed that is almost empty except for a few straggling Iris plants. Our green beans will go there this year.
So, If you wonder where Ma and Pa are, we are in our little jungle...
Hoping all is well with all of you!
Hugs, Ma and Pa

Back to "normal", whatever that is!

Wow, what a busy 2 months we have had... but we are now done.  Our little trailer sold, closing was this week. God chose a middle age lady that needed an economic place to live!  Praise God for His step by step leading!
So we are getting back to normal again.
Dad's shop is almost up and running...
I have pictures to put on the wall and that is all.
Outside has gotten a little attention as well, but needs alot more.  However we are excited to see all the flowers coming along.
Pansy Party!

Lilacs are so yummy! Love them!

Our sister cities on the East slope of Colorado got snow again... we got rain last night.
All needed moisture, but poor East slope has had a bunch of snow this year.

We hope this finds you all enjoying your spring!

We are settling in and happy,
Hugs, Ma and Pa
