Fall Back...or Free Fall?

Today we had a picnic to say farewell to Maggie she went back to her home today...sad to see her go we will miss her but she needs time to get used to her new family and home now that they have returned from Houston. 



the trees are finally starting to change...


especially the Cyprus trees...

This week we cut the grass in the field...its like cutting hay in fact that is what it is... well I say we my sis is doing my chores for me...while Jimmy watched...



Annie had to roll and play in it...


Sis put a few wheel barrow loads on my compost pile...look at all the avocado trees growing there!


...checked on the 30 little Eastern Cedar trees that I planted on my back property line this spring...each one survived and are up to about 7" tall now --should double in size each yr...lets see when I'm 80 how tall will they be? I guess you need a degree to figure that one :o) 5ft tall in 4 yrs maybe?  I'm 5'6" so should hide me quite well ...The best thing about these trees is they reach a mature size and stop growing...so I should have a nice privacy screen by the time I'm 6 ft under wouldn't you say?


Walking Dead on amc tonight be there or be square!!
My matching casts...one is to come off on 11/11





PEACE

  2. At least one cast is coming off. Glad you had some company to help while away the time ... and it looks like a good time. Cyprus trees have a beauty all their own!

  4. Ooh lots of pretty photos here! All the dogs are beautiful too. Funny I planted a few little western cedars in the spring. They look great but haven't gotten any taller. Can't complain, they were "free" in an industrial area (offshoots from mature trees). Awesome baby avocado trees! And psyched for one of your casts to come off- left or right??

  8. OH my gosh I'm so glad things are progressing as they are supposed to and thank Goddess for your wonderful sister ....I didn't quite understand who's going home (besides sweet Maggie)...I have trouble keeping my own family straight, so don't be surprised I can't remember whose dog is whose in yours ;>)

  9. Looking great there! We feel the same about our trees....everytime we walk by we give them encouraging words to grow, grow, grow. :):) So excited for you to get those casts off!

  10. OK I know I've been here and commented before (getting that straight before you start questioning my memory or lack of it ;>)).... Just checking in to say still thinking of you and hope your recovery is still on track.

  11. I have been here before too! But when I don't know or how long ago. Sheesh.
    Anyway sure sorry about your arms. Hope all heals well.
    I went way back and still have to go back even more to catch up. Your remodel is really going nicely.
    I love your pictures.
