Field of Dreams

Looking at the yard from the second floor window, I'm reminded of one of my favorite movies, Field of Dreams.  Ray Kinsella mows down his cornfield to build a baseball diamond.  A voice tells him to do it, and he does.  A leap of faith.  I guess that's what it took for us to start over in our yard. It looks a little like a baseball diamond, doesn't it?

Little by little we're planting our new garden.  I'm watering the lawn, twice a day as per our instructions.  The birds, especially the Robins and a Mourning Dove are enjoying the turned soil and the grass seed.  Hope there's some left to grow.

Everything but the kitchen sink is on the deck right now.  All the tools, potting soil, pots and our little bird's pool and wagon.
This is the little bird's garden.  We're late but planted pumpkins and sunflowers.  She is so excited.

 Progress report...the living wreath is doing well and filling in.
I saw a bucket at the perennial farm...  $35! This was Dad's bait can...sorry Dad. (I put a few holes in the bottom.)  I never went fishin' and I think this is a better use for your bucket

The hens and chicks are planted in our old boots.  The regular chores call to me today...Post office, groceries and a 50% coupon at Michael's is calling.  Enjoy this beautiful day.

Love what you did with the old boots and bait pail! Too cute! And the living wreath is so pretty too.
