We had a visitor the other day. Not a very welcomed visitor if you ask me but DH thought it was pretty neat.

Humingbirds are here

Ranch cats

These two run the ranch when we are away and even when we are home. They are brother and sister.

Tigger - She is very vocal and really hard to get a picture of since she is always under your feet.

This one is Stripes - Yep, he is a male and pretty laid back as you can see. I think I woke him up from one of his numerous naps that he takes.

Flower Gardens

Peonies full of buds.
Peonies along the driveway

Garden & Strawberries

We are eating lettuce from the garden now.
Here is a picture of the rest of the garden. The far side of the garden are the potatoes you can see one row was just hill ed up.

Snapping turtle

Really bad picture but after taking this pictures I haven't seen the turtle since.
Same turtle back in the pond.


Batik Iris

This copper Iris was given to me by my MIL.
This pretty yellow one came from my MIL too!

Bathroom Remodel

Here is the before picture of the bathroom with the stenciled wall. I didn't get a picture of the yucky peel and stick tiles before they were ripped up.

The bathroom is now painted green. I really like the green and brown contrast.

And the most important part is the tile on the floor. So much better then what we had before.
The trim has been added now too but no picture of that and I don't feel like going downstairs to take one now you will just have to see it when you visit.
