Spring Fever

Today is a beautiful day. High of 64 but feels almost like 70. Since my husband stayed home from work sick today I decided to take my little princess out back and do some yard work. I put her in her walker, much easier to move her around while i'm cleaning.
I decided to clean the patio and move a few things around but i'm not sure I like where I moved the bbq. It gives Allison more room to walk around in her walker, so I might keep it there until we start bbqing again. Here are a few pics of the process. I think it makes the yard look 100% better because I was sick of all the stuff the rain knocks out of the trees and I have to look at it from the kitchen window, it makes me much happier to have a clean yard.

These are the before pics, looks like alot of work...and it was.

Here are the after, much cleaner and looks so much more inviting. I took out that potting table and replaced it with a small table we used to have in the kitchen before we remodeled. The glass table used to be in the living room but we got another one at IKEA that has alot of storage in it.
I also took some pictures of our koi pond. Last spring we bought 2 koi at Wal-Mart and they ended up having babies. One of the first two died after the babies were born, but we were left with eight new fish. We have the original orange one with white tummy, a 1 inch white w/orange spot on its head, solid black one, black with orange spots, 2 white ones, and three more that are orange with white tummies a total of 9 fish in our tiny pond. This summer I am going to work on getting some plants for it and some more color around it.

Tomorrow I have another project I will be working on. An indoor herb garden, can't wait to start that. Spring is in the air and I love it, makes me so happy. Have a wonderful day!!!
