Monday Meme

Well, this front yard/back yard meme has eluded me for a nice long time.  I must say I was happy not to be tagged because for most of the year, if you look out either our front or back doors, it is none-too-exciting.  Winters are loooong in Connecticut.  But Country Girl Kate has finally done it.  She wins the prize for the best views hands down.  Check it out.
This time of year is always a celebratory one.
Everything looks so fresh and green.
We moved to this house three years ago.
The only thing I could think of was how we needed a pool.
So practical when the pool season is, maybe, 5 months long.
Squazz wasn't so sure.
~~~
We put in this small pool.
Peace reigns throughout the land.
The Back Yard - Mental View.
The Back Yard - Moo View.
The Front Yard.
All View.
I love this Dogwood.
I am not tagging anyone in particular, we are very busy with our bovine buddies, and will have an update on their activities tomorrow.  A hint: they had a little visit with our friends of Cocktail Corner yesterday.  

Things got, um, interesting?

Your dogwood is beautiful.
Here in Canada mine has started to bud so hopefully in a few more weeks it will look as nice as yours.

Gorgeous (said w/ Streisand-esque accent). In my front yard, I have a lovely view of our new smoker. DH doesn't watch it, I'm making smoked DH this week.

Beautiful pool Mental Mama. Are the ducks still there?

Mental P Mama said...

Treasia--The ducks come every morning. We have to scare them off. I love to watch them, but I don't think we need a whole family of them here...

Mary said...

Love your dogwood! The pool looks great, if we ever get any warm weather...spent 2 hours out in pouring rain, 50 degrees, for soccer game yesterday...no fun!
Have a great week! Still cleaning for the girlfriend, who comes on Saturday.
xoxo,
Mary

So when can I move in? THAT is GORGEOUS and simply so serene. I'd have NO stress with that view.

Okay, LESS stress. :)

What a beautiful tree, how lucky you are to have it there. Can't wait to hear about the cows.

I am jealous of your pool! It's gorgeous. Love your dogwood. Ours have gone to leaf. Thanks for playing.
