RE - AWARDED! & I must get back in the yard

First thing, I was asked by Rhonda of Scooterblu's Whimsey to accept the RE- awards of both the awards that I awarded to her. ( Did I get it right, Rhonda?) well my answer is.....YES! YES! OF COURSE ! I will gladly accept them, friend. Rhonda has a beautiful blog, beautiful personality, and a beautiful home. There's a must see, where she attended the High School Reunion of quite a few members of her husband's family, as it was for the graduates from the 1940's thru 1960's, it was full of fun, history and wonderful pictures. Stop by Rhonda's I'm sure you will enjoy.

Thanks, Rhonda you're kind too!

Second thing, ladies some places in my yard is not looking the way that I want, so I'm going to have to take today, and tomorrow, to make the progress that I should have already made. So I don't think I'll be posting those days. (think) :O) I told you all in my meme, that I get consumed by things, and most of the time don't get things done I that should. This is something that needs to be done but something I love doing. When I post on Friday, I will have an update on my weight loss progress, new pictures, same outfit, and a update of how everything went for me on the diet this week. As I walked around the yard this morning, I did notice a few things that were doing well and some that weren't so I will share.

The Lambs Ear was in bloom.

My friends were fine.

The blackberry blossoms were gorgeous.

The little frog was happy!

This plant was beautiful and standing tall.

This one was lying down.

The window boxes were doing ok.

So was everything here.

But the fence outback, I don't know what I can do to make this fence look better, it's horrible. It's structurally sound but it looks dead. I want to paint it the trim color on the house, (shown in the next picture) or I could try some kind of vine to hide it, what do you think?

I thought if I paint it this color only on the inside, not the side that's visible to the street, it would look better and would be faster than waiting for vines to mature enough to cover it. Well there's so much to do, so off I go, but I'll be visiting with you. Until Friday take care. Deb
