Re: new pics added


Thanks- I managed to get the one old chain unstuck from the ground/drainage pipe. I have no idea what what holding it in place, but I couldn't yank is out yesterday. I was going to try bolt cutters today, but happily once I got the cutters latched onto a link and pulled, the whole thing came free. Certainly was easier than cutting the chain (not sure the bolt cutters would have even worked). I need to go get some plastic grills to go over the drain pipe opening and attach the bottom of the chains to them tomorrow. I did get the 3rd chain up today, and cut and moved the drain pipe further away from the house to accomodate it. Now I want it to rain (on Monday!) so that I can watch and listen to them working! I also cut back all of the mexican heather and geraniums down to the ground as they were all very brown from freezing. So now the side of the house outside the fence looks much better. Both are clearly still alive, so should be growing and green again soon. Oh- I also bought a dwarf flowering quince at the farmer's market this AM. It's only supposed to get to 3 feet. I love the early flowers and I sure something has died this year, so in another month or so, I'll find it a permanent home in garden then.

Great pics Theresa! When I saw the rain chain I gasped and said "I am so jealous!" I've wanted one of those for a long time. Lucky you! Everything and everyone looks great.

A little spring for those of you in the snow. And a pic of my new rainchain I installed this afternoon afterwork.
