-------------------It's a Miracle-----------------------

I know you won't believe this,
because I can hardly believe it myself-
ta da!
We have GRASS!!
Little baby grass in the front yard.
Ok, so right now, it looks more like the yard is
covered with moss
But, it won't be too long before we can mow it!
I am elated at the thoughts of mowing-
that's what 2 years of dirt will do for you.
It's so very exciting
and quite pretty :)
As you can see, the weeds are coming up with
the itty-bitty grass, but
Eddie tells me the "grass will
choke them out."
He should know, he's the pro.
We are finding out through this new grass phase
that our front yard must be the night highway
for all the local dogs and deer.
Every morning when we wake up
there are new footprints in the dirt.
Our dog Remy, must be awfully popular-
the trail leads right back to her dog run.
It's quite depressing to see the struggling
grass get violated like this.
The picture doesn't do justice to this trail-
there is a major thoroughfare in front of the little tree.
I did get fairies to try to scare the dogs away
or to just look darn cute in my flowers.
I think she does a great job on the cuteness part.
Fairy #2
See my feet behind her as I hung off the porch
trying to take this picture? :)
I'm sure that was quite a site in itself.
Now that we are getting grass,
maybe my grandkids can come and play.
It won't be as fun as all the dirt,
but it will be cleaner :)


  1. HOORAY!! HOORAY FOR GRASS!! I'm way excited for it!! and can't wait to see it!! :)

  2. Wendy I am so glad you a blog stalker so I could find out about your blog. It's so fun to read, even Chris laughed when I read him about Eddy, Grammy, and Matlock and he isn't much of a blog man. I can't wait to read about more of your adventures!
