Papas World – ” HERE COMES PETER COTTONTAIL”!

We have been here for 11 days – and five of those days –

we spent at Lake Holiday with Debby and Mike.

Tammy and Marcus address has become our address

and home base.

At Lake Holiday with Debby – Mike and Maddy.

Also Sarah and Ella.

At Tammy and Marcus house outside Leesburg Va.

Marcus has been having problems with lots of rabbits!

Eating the grass and plants.

So – he spread this rabbit stuff on the lawn –

suppose to make them not like it!

And for the last week or so – it seemed to work!

Then – as we- Sherry and I – were sitting on the patio –

She said look!

There were two rabbits – playing around the corn hole board!

They would follow each other around and under the board!

Then one laid down and began to roll around –

the other just sat there-

this went on for several minutes!

It was really cute and funny –

as I knew my son in law was trying to keep them out of the yard

and away from all the flowers and plants!

Taylor – one of the twins – came out and named them Daisy and Buttercup!

I think the whole thing is funny –

and am waiting for Peter Cottontail to show up!

Buttercup eyeing the flowers! Lol

He was golfing so I took the pictures and tagged him!

I have a feeling it is going to be a long Summer and Fall.

My son in law watching over his lawn and flowers.

Papas World – Sheltering Day#51 – yard work – planting

Finally – it would be warm all day – mid ’70’s – bright sunshine

Time to get outside after all the rain and cold days!

Even though we have had to stay inside from our walks

The rain has left the lawn thick and lush!

I have now mowed at least a half dozen times – seems like every 4 days

except when it rains and then I sneak it in between showers!

The side yard has really filled in – that has been my problem area

I also started two years ago – putting lime pellets down

in the fall time!

One of the outdoor Tower Gardens – the other is in the enclosed patio

It has been cold at night – high 30’s to mid 40’s –

yet with all the rain and peaks of sunshine – it is growing!

We decided this year LESS IS MORE in planting flowers!

99 % of the greens you see – flower and come up each year

except the green bushes !

So we decided to POT this year with flowers

with three or four in the flower beds

and the rest in the enclosed patio.

It takes me 60 minutes with a push lawn mower

trimming included and weed whacker

to mow the lawn

a few people tell me they no longer do this

but I enjoy it !

It is a form of exercise for me – almost 5000 steps!

And I get the feeling of something I have created

and see the results of all that I have planted in the 14 years!

All of this I have planted by hand and cultivated.

I only wish this bush would look like this all summer

but – after it blooms it loses it petals

and new leaves are formed along with getting larger.

The grass is so soft and spongy like

almost as if you are walking on a carpet.

I have a lawn company called Bio-Turf

for four years now –

and they do a terrific job.

Six different times they come to the house each year

and do all the spreading – plugging – and seeding and lime spreading

VERY HAPPY WITH THEM!

The pot to the right is all MINT
and you can smell it as you walk up the bank
the enclosed brick area is my strawberries
and last year and this year my Potato’s

Our first rose of the year – with many more to come

they will bloom – go away and later in the summer bloom again

The three Swedish horses that Maddy – Ella and Sarah made for us

laying in the bed.

And – with the same theme – one potted planter

everything else comes up each year.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

I hope you enjoyed my little tour of the yard

I hope to do the same tour of the enclosed patio.
