Things in my backyard


Every chance I get I go and work on my backyard. Just enjoy being outdoors,especially with my plants.
My hubby made this for me about 2 yrs. ago.
Old tree trunk, using for planter.
My hubby made several of these. Kept one, gave the other ones away.

    we don't have many bugs here in Southern California, but ants are a problem. I take care of them early in the spring with Terro ant traps outside. Since I started doing that, we no longer have problems inside the house with ant attacks. You get them at any of the big box stores. I really like your planters too, unusual!

    @Marianne I live in Florida where there are many bugs, when I work outside I put a fresh bounce dryer sheets in my pockets-usually two. Works for me, keeps the bugs away.
