" I Can See Clearly Now "

I had a vision in my head of a tropical feeling courtyard area out back. Today the vision came to life in part as my wonderful husband began the work of turning my vision into a dream come true!



Yesterday we had a sweet smelling rain shower and a rainbow.............



I love rainbows.....




And then some gorgeous clouds for me to gaze at...





I just can't get enough of gazing....






And then the moon appeared...........






Growing larger....








I don't know if it was official but it was full...........








And later after dark, it was awesome!








This is a shot of the Mystery Plant. I think it is gorgeous but has stopped blooming at the moment.









I dealt with a little Okra today...........












I got a gallon bag of sliced and a few small whole pods for the freezer....












Watermelon anyone?












Part of the posts for the Chicken Coop were set this morning...but not where we first planned to put them.....It will be on the south side behind Hubby's shop.














The Courtyard posts go in...........
















These are the back posts.....















The right side posts............

















Left side..............



















This was the first post put down....



















Oh My Gosh........one side of the inside dog wire is UP !



















Looking good!





















Ahwwwwww my fat boy Patch is 6 weeks today!






















They got new digs today! They like it better than the box as they can see what's going on!






















These are some sweet babies!! They also got food for the first time today!

























What a sweet face!

























Outside play time is sooooo much fun!!

























The Courtyard will also serve as a play yard for all the Peek gang!

I swear to goodness...is there anything cuter than a puppy??? How much fun you must be having.

And what on earth will you do with all that watermelon??? Yum!

Vicki Lane said...

Wonderful clouds -- N.C. Wyeth for sure! And what a good person your husband is -- many men would leave town faced with such a list.

I have always loved courtyards. I used to have one at my house in washinton state. I t is a great place to sit and ponder..
your watermelons look greatI have not had a good sucess with them here in Minnesota. Hope you enjoy your new space.

Oh the puppies are so very cute little butterballs of fur.

We are planning a short vacation to an area resort for our combined birthdays which are only two months apart.

Luckie is invited, but I feel boarding her at vet a better option considering her age, and I'm not sure I can trust her to stay in a strange room alone and be "responsible." HA HA


You have some beautiful produce. Glad the rains finally came.

another good thing said...

there is something about a full moon. It stirs me up a bit...
Asa woman who made her own backyard beach- sans water-I love the courtyard idea- will be watching the progress.

Gaston Studio said...

Willow hit the nail on the head, definitely Wyeth-like photos.

Trixie said...

I just love it.

Cindy said...

Wonderful post. I love your yard and the pups are so adorable. The cloud photos are great too. I'm glad I'm not the only one who likes to take photos of clouds. Have a great Wednesday. ~Cindy

Pups are adorable!

You'll have those wonderful eggs that have whites that don't run all over the pan! Your meringues will REALLY be mile high.

T said...

You've go me missing my garden (and I hope it's still there once I get home!).

your puppies are growing so fast!!! We just rescued one yesterday....he's beaglesque! His name is Nash!

Coming to your blog is like coming to your place for a visit..Always something going on with clouds, flowers, plants, projects, puppies, and it is a JOY! I am so very glad that I found you, as I am always delighted with it all..
LOVE the puppies..so very cute..

crochet lady said...

That illustration is wonderful!

Your sky pictures are interesting. I always love rainbow shots.

I bet your pups will be having a great time putting those little leggies to work and running around on the grass.

A Brit in Tennessee said...

Rainbows, clouds and a full-moon, my you have such a palette of shots to choose from.
I'm excited to see your courtyard taking shape, your hubby is working awful hard.
The pups are so cute and pudgy, are you planning on keeping them both, or did you say they were for family members ?
They are like little butterballs ;)

~Cheryl said...

Very nice! All dreams should be encouraged!

Elenka said...

It's unbelievable how quickly those little pups are growing! They sure have a lot of fur!!!!

Pastor Sharon said...

Beautiful pictures! I do love the pics of your place! Now about those fat boys, I so adore them! They are the sweetest little ewok looking guys!

It's a good think Ms Daisy has never had puppies. I'm not sure i could put them down and let them just be......
