I wont be doing to much outside today. I have much to do inside after I clean out the remaining 2 gourds. I am pretty excited about that bird house gourd stuff. Think I may build a frame for another round. It's fun to do.
This weekend it's to the cabin. I have alot of transplanting to do , my SIL thinned her day lily's and since they will be perfect for the bank, I got one big project to get done between the rain...
Have a lovely Easter weekend.....

So, my plan is to make a formal area where I can sit and watch
