My Outdoor Projects For The Summer

DSC00291One of the many projects we have done this summer. This old bird house was a treasure we found while taking a load to the dump. I didn’t go there to pick stuff up and bring it home, but it happened to be right next to the trailer. My wife & her buddy who accompanied us picked it up. This poor old thing was definitely on it last leg. I spent some time sanding and re-gluing here and there.

My youngest girl, the artist, who happens to be going through a painting phase was a perfect candidate for the next step. Not what she had in mind as far as paintings go, however she did put a tad of herself into it and did a wonderful job bringing this fellow back to life.

I added a couple of mounting boards across the back. Took it outside and hung it on the side of the shed. Looks great if you ask me.

The wife and kids planted some beautiful rose bushes last week outside the garage window. They did a great job there.

Three weeks ago we planted a dwarf plum tree out in the back of the property. I had to build a fence around it out of some pallets we picked up for free at a local shop, because our puppy monsters have been in a digging and eating everything in sight including trees phase for about a year now. And they’re only 14 months old.

I guess for my next project, I will do a bit of touch up on my BBQ. It’s starting to show a bit of wear and tear.

This here is the only surviving bit of our garden. We can’t have a garden because we have monsters instead. A mix of flowers and a weed.
