From winter to spring in 5 hours

We left behind the quiet solace of winter on Wednesday...

....and flew to California.  We found Spring in my sister's garden.

It's actually nice to see pictures of spring. I know it will eventually happen here also..(Ohio)...when all the snow finally decides to melt! Until then, I have to be content at looking through seed catalogues and planning the projects for the garden. Sighhh....Oh..by the way..that garden art is soooo cool. I have an Amish neighbor who experiments with making things out of used horseshoes to sell at our local farmers market when it's in season ...I'll have to let him see this.....(when noone else is looking!)


Hey Mag. I also enjoyed the pix, esp. the sunrise one. Is that in your backyard? It looks like a peaceful place to unwind after a stressful day...Will you soon be posting some new videos in that section of your website?

Yes KNelson, some wacky new videos coming soon, and possibly a music video with a home repair theme. What's not to love?


Thanks Mag, looking forward to seeing them all..

take care,
