Backyard in Bloom
Posted by nbdog in Around the house on 17-May-2014

There were a few new-born geese roaming the course and lovely blooms on the rhododendrons. One of the good things about golf is the scenery is usually great.

With a new dish rock in place in the front yard and plants in waiting, we didn’t let intermittent showers stop us from working. And I found a new use for my golf cart and umbrella.
