Spring means GATORS!

The gators are back at the bayhouse. That means we are in full discussions about building a fence for the dogs!

More great sunsets

All I can say is WOW! This is why sunset is an event at the bayhouse!

Great weekend of fishing

We had a great weekend of fishing a couple of weeks ago. Morgan and Tyler caught these!


Another great sunset at the bay!


I am trying a new vegetable this year in my garden. I found some asparagus roots at Home Depot on one of our latest shopping trips. We eat asparagus every week and I would love to be able to say that I grew my own so I bought some. They are actually growing! Asparagus is a three year minimum crop. The roots that I bought are 2 years old so next spring I should be able to have my first harvest. This is what they look like right now.

First flowers of spring

The rose was my first to bloom this spring. The sunflower came up volunteer under my birdfeeders. I have a whole crop of sunflowers getting ready to bloom!

Doodie Calls

I'll end today with this picture. Mike came home last week with a special porta-potty request. A couple of ladies in the neighborhood own a landscaping business and wanted a specialty can for their use at their business. We now offer specialty doodie cans!

Raised Beds are the Best

This is my new/growing garden. I plant something new in it almost every day. The log that is in the front was a tree that died last year and Mike cut it down for firewood, and decided to cut it like one that I had found on Pinterest. If you aren't on Pinterest, you should be. You can find great ideas on that website! I bought some of the plants for the log today but didn't want to plant them in the wind today.

Yummy Carrots

Planted some carrot seeds in the garden in early fall and went to check on them one day and decided to pull one up and this was under there. Ended up with a whole mess of them and they were delicious!

Great View

Just really like this picture so I thought I'd share. It was taken from the upper porch at the bayhouse.
