It’s Finally Here!

I bet you can’t guess what we will be doing once these hot and humid days are gone! Two dump trucks full of mulch (14 cubic yards) and more than three months after ordering it, I finally got my mulch. I contacted the place that delivered this in early May.

Wash the tomatoes and […]

Halloween Spider

How fascinating is this! I was putting away my outside Halloween decorations at my cabana and when I took the pumpkins off of the straw bales, I found this little pumpkin on there to. It looks like it already had a face on top, do you see it? This spider is called a Marbled Orb Weaver and you can see […]
