More Yard stuff

This is one of my Sassafras trees getting ready to come into leaf. Have you ever had Sassafras tea? This if for Miss Khyra. My lilacs are not as far along as hers though.

This is my internets thingy. It is called Wildblue and it lives on the roof. I am not allowed to go up there. This is my front porch... my dad has the floor all torn up right now. Today the NEW floor is going to be delivered and he will put that on. Then when he finishes.. in about 87 days... we will go to the big city and get the new carpet. I'll show you that... when it gets going. That is my dad's sucky trucky. I hate it. Jennifer Jeep lives in the side under my internets thingy. That tree near my house is a Mimosa tree. It will not have leaves for about 87 weeks.

This is my turtle and my other two bears... beclaws we live in Bearfield Township. The thingy is a piece of REAL petrified wood... that dad's brother picked up in Arizona for my mom... beclaws we all know she has a thing for rocks.

This is one of my peach trees. It has a gourd bird house... and mom says there are eggs in there already. She wouldn't lift me up so that I could see. Bah!!! This is my house from down the hill. Can you see some of my holes??? I have about 87 million of them down there. Especially under my maple tree. Dad says that John the Deere is going to break a tire in one of them some day. I just hope he doesn't mess up the hole when he does.

I will surely be glad when dad gets the floor back on my front porch so that I can use my ramp again and sit out there and watch for moleys to pop up... that is when I run down and DIG like a Goood Dachshund Should.
You can't see it in this pic. butt my pontoon boat trailer was over to the right of the peach tree. Dad and I moved it to its summer home yesterday... We did it with my 4-wheeler. It was really fun.
I am going to show you more pics of my yard and my stuff. I am getting back at mom for all of those stupid snowmen pictures. I think MY stuff is WAY better than hers. Just wait until you see my OUTHOUSE!!!!

Thanks for the garden tour. There sure are some curious objects in your yard.

Hope you get that porch fixed up soon. I am all too familiar with the constructions projects that never end.

Gosh, you lives in SUCH a very much pretty place, Frankie! I wish I could come visit and then we could digs some holes together. It's prolly good that they don't let you up on the roof. You might fall off and that would be a loooooong way down!

You've got so much great stuff outside, I don't see why you'd ever want to go inside! My lilacs still look like yours. We have to fix a step on our porch. I sure hope it happens soon!

Wow Frankie, you have a very big and very pretty yard. It must take you a long time to keep up with all of it and keep an eye out for any new holes that need dug. It sounds like you are doing a very good job!

We love your Sassafras tree, never seen one of those - such pretty yellow flowers. And how did John Deere get to your yard, he is always next door to us making lots of noise in his yard.

Hope you can get one or two of those moles soon.

Woos - Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

What a great place you have Frankie. And so nice of you to share it with your parents. I knew you had a giving heart. I do hope they don't mess up your holes though. You should get those babies insured or something. If one is destroyed they must pay out in treats.
