Hot Summer Sunday

It was a rough day - we cleaned the edge and raked the pond, and I let myself get dehydrated. Molly and I took several naps in an effort to recover.
See? Who else do you know who rakes their pond? We had a lot of grass growing in it, and had some algae to clean out, too.
We made sure we left this guy's hiding spot intact.
Isn't he huge?
Just a few of the many pots of flowers and foliage on the deck.
Still trying to get the bathroom painted. My goodness that little room is taking me a long time!

Nice to see you and Molly resting. :)
It is hard work to maintain our backyards. I have a water feature in my backyard and we are always cleaning things out of it especially small leaves. :(
Your deck looks beautiful with all the lovely flower pots.

a lovely group of photos, sue! i particularly love the one of you and molly resting in the recliner.

my mum used to sweep the dirt floor in the annex of our caravan so she would probably rake a pond too. ;)

Love that picture of you napping!

The colors of that frog are interesting. I don't think I have seen one with that coloration before.

I swear your deck gets lovelier every year! An explosion of color.
