4th of July Projects

 Hi Everyone of you that may be reading this blog today. Hope your 4th of July celebration was wonderful!!! Happy Birthday to America!!!!
We celebrated by doing things around the house. Finally got my little fountain going. Was trying to figure out how I could do this, then it dawns on me just to put the fountain in a pot with dirt, then I added the fake leaves and flowers to add some color......works like a charm. The neighbor gave me this fountain over 15 years ago, it used to hang on the garage.....now it has found a new place on the front porch.
 Here again is my fountain in the back yard.....oh my goodness, it is so relaxing to listen to the bubbleing sound of the fountain doing it's thing. I thought I would dig a deeper hole for the liner.......but you know, I think I will just leave it as is. You like my watering can??
 FINALLY finished the fire-pit garden......this little project was done yesterday. It took about 7 wheel barrels of mulch and black material to cover.........hopefully NO weeds will grow. We also dug up this old wild grape vine which NEVER produced grapes.....I think we had the female and needed the male....oh well. Now it is gone and I can plant some Gladi bulbs...I think there is still time to plant. Hope so, cause I still have some tomato and pepper plants to plant today.
These are my pretty Purple Clementis's....I transplanted some of these in two different spots this spring. Along side my Star Clementis on the front porch and back where the grape vine lived. Next year I will try to get some morning glories growing there also. I am very happy that the grape vine is gone.

Well, it is time to close for now, hope you all are enjoying the day. I need to get my act in gear and get some more work done, need to lose a few pounds by Monday, have a doctors appointment...ick!! Follow-up on my blood tests from January.

Keep looking up for your redemption draws nigh.
Cheers ~ Louise

Thanks so much on the manny ..well they come with no hair.. but have eyebrows which I sand off as they are usually extreme and I think ugly...then repaint new ones..eyes are painted and most of them are nice , but a lot of times I change the eye color etc.. and the lips are painted on but I always redo those (:)they usually come in really light colors..
Hope your weekend was a nice one (:)

I love the sound of running water in the garden. Someday I hope to have a water fountain but the one's I love are way too expensive. (smile)
