Backyard fun

It's a beautiful day outside today, the sun is shining, its 72 degrees outside right now.  We had to get outside.  Here is a pciture of my lovely new fence and garden.

 I can not wait to see what comes of it this year.  I have high hopes,, we have over 20 pepper plants, 4 cabbage, 4 broccoli, cucumbers and green beans to grow up the fence you see in the middle there.  Also green onions, kohlrabi, radishes, carrots, lettuce, garlic, tomatoes, basil, cilantro, and chives!  I'm hoping we get a good harvest!

The girls have been having a fun time this morning.  They found a toad!  They've been playing with it and making a temporary home for it,, here you see them all huddled around the bucket with the toad in it.
 I found another use for our gazebo we put up,,, it makes a lovely clothesline. LOL
 and here is my real clothes line. 
I just love sitting in my backyard!  It can feel so peaceful,,(as long as the neighbors poodles arnt out barking at us and driving me crazy!)
