Hello everyone! and a little progress.....

We took a trip to the beach, pure heaven! There were bumper cars, and the tilt-a-whirl and ice cream and chowder, long walk on the sand and a beautiful sunset. Such a wonderful day, spent with my honey!

We did forget the camera, and the beautiful photos of the sunset are on my phone, and I have not learned how to download those yet.

And then on Sunday, it was back to the backyard and making it into the yard we want....

The start of our garden, a very thick layer of sod to remove/till under. 

Yes another rhubarb photo, but look how well this stuff is growing!

Only a small remaining portion of the branches to be cut up. All the smaller side branches were harvested for kindling. We have a small mountain of kindling, ready for winter's warming fires in the wood stove.

Yard rubble needing "mowed" to become mulch material.

Then at the end of the day we took a break, and took a drive, and found this area.....








And this upcoming weekend, starts the routine again, but with a much brighter spirit. 

As always, thanks for taking a moment to stop and say hello. I appreciate your time and your wonderful comments!

Beautiful scenic pictures, Melynda. Your new garden area is going to be wonderful--it looks quite large from your picture. And it's great to have all that firewood and kindling stored up and ready to go--good work!

Sounds like your trip to the beach was wonderful! I absolutely love old fashioned beachside amusement parks!

Envious of your rhubarb! It doesn't grow very well around here, and rhubarb desserts are my favorite.
