spring in our backyard...

spring is finally here!  yes, late as always - in calgary!  but whatcha gonna do??

it's our may long weekend in canada here, so time to do some yard work!
here's a little peek at what we've been up to...


we really should replace our deck, but it's not in the budget this summer, so a coat of stain was in order....here's how dull it was looking:


sanded...



1/2 way done...


and voila....
i'm planning on planting some annuals today, so i'll show an "after pic" later this week, when things are looking more finished...


but i'll leave you with a few spring, sunny pics, just 'cuz!




perennials comin' up!




to all my readers who live some place warm all year round, count yourselves very fortunate!!
