    Oh darn right? (I'm also shopping for a good bread maker, LOL! Brands?)

    Thank you Fly for new found money!!!! I got cards. But, really...is that a gift? I want a new, fully adjustable leather halter for my girl (not for the red-headed step child filly), w a rolled throatlatch, and a touch of silver. Good thing I didn't get any flowers. Forget the flowers, girl, you have leverage here...no flowers, no chocolate? Oooooh, that is so worth something!

    Today's project....

    So my vege garden has been bugging me, the last owners lacked imagination. So while riding today I have a momentary brain awakening and got an idea, I like all the vege planters...theyre just boring.....here is a before pic:

    And here is the after pic, it only took two hours....and yes I refilled them with soil and managed to mix three any colonies together so let's hope they all kill each other now!!!

    Nice switch! Now you have more ground space to plant more things!!

    I guess I'm boring too, I wouldn't have thought to move them you did, but I would have painted them a bright color.
    I like your ducks too.

    Actually painting was the next step!!! Have to go look through all hubby's cast off paint cans!! I have to move three other planters first though and they have ant colonies in them too.....lets lets the ant tribes mix and canabalize each other! I mixed three others today too...they were all different, medium sized light brown ant nest, black ant nest and large brown ant nest.....I'm itching just thinking about them

    My kids used to mix ants up intentionally to watch them war. Evil children.

    I like the higher raised beds idea - less bending over is good
    I like the ducks too - I admit to being a collector of totally tasteless garden
    (t)chotchkies, I've seen this peacock thing in a catalogue called Wind & Weather and I just have to buy it. I have so many solar lights I'm amazed light aircraft don't land here at night!!

    My grapes are growing like crazy, no grapes yet. My peach,apricot,pear have bloomed but the wind blew like crazy so I don't know how much fruit I will get.
    Fig tree has not done anything yet. My apple trees blossomed may get one or two small apples ,not enough cold days in a row. My squash have flowers and one tomatoe plant has little green tom's on it. ;) the grass hoppers ate the bell pepper plants, but I think one is making a come back. Oh and the nectarine trees have bloomed, I have not checked my oranges. I hope the squirrels and rabbits don't get all my stone fruits this year.

    First prickly pear bloom of the season. It is up against a west facing wall, so I guess it just popped out early. All the rest are just barely budding. I am not a fan of prickly pears, but they have pretty flowers. Oh, come one now!! All of you have "magazine quality" gardens, throw the desert rat a crumb!!
