It Was A Gorgeous Day......

yesterday.  We can only water on odd/even days (depends on your house number) and yesterday I put the sprinkler on.
The big, fat Robins all LOVED bathing in the sprinkler and I had fun watching them.
I haven't shown you our back patio in a while so I thought I would share it again.  It is about 12 feet wide by 50 feet long.  With our cooler mornings I have been out here reading a lot.  I love to sit out here and read and watch the birds. 
I stood in the middle and took a picture one way then the other way.  LOVE it!
Thank you all for your kind comments about my weight loss.  Hope you all are having a GREAT Tuesday.♥

Watching birds is one of my favorite pastimes. You definitely have a great place to do it.
Hope your week gets off to a good start.

You do have a large patio...and the yard is so pretty...loved the curving of the grass line.

I LOVE your porch (and yard). We have a tiny front covered porch, hardly room for chairs and walking...and wahoo! for your weight loss. You go girl!!

Yay Darlene, I've been reading your posts and wanted to leave a comment the other day....but here goes. I think you just look great and I'm so proud of what you have done. Those pictures are just wonderful!!!! Yipee for you.
Now...your yard is so beautiful...I haven't seen grass like that since I visited a golf course in Palm Springs...no kidding either! Your back porch is huge and perfect for lounging! but who has time to lounge..right?
I know you are going to have a great week!
Blessings,
Debbie

I have been waiting to see some beautiful days with the heat gone but we are still to hot to stay outside long. Can't wait till we have those days your having. Love your long and spacious patio. I can sit outside all day and just watch birds...love them!

Hi Darlene
Your patio looks such a lovely spot. I can just imagine you sitting out there reading. You have lots of space there to enjoy. Great picture of the Robin's having a shower.

That's a great patio to sit out on. It's so long, what a great space to read!
I'm catching up on you posts, you look fantastic!! Congrats on your weight loss, it's such a difficult thing to do and you've stuck with it, great job!!
I lost 15 pounds over the winter and spring and have gained 5 back. Ugh. I need to get crackin again!

Your backyard and patio area is so gorgeous Darlene! I love your landscaping- I would love to do the edging in our backyard like that, but not really sure how to do it and make it look as good as your does...
I love the picture of the robins- they act like they're at a water park! *giggle*

What a FABULOUS reading spot!!! I love that! Can't wait for my porch to be finished, although it won't be THAT big, it will do! Love all the pics!!

Hope you're having a great week so far!♥
