Actually the yard is ready. My husband does lawn work as a second job so it's always ready.

We have a huge front porch with steps down to the driveway. On the NE side of the drive we have 2 smokers and a grill cabinet all clean and ready for the weekends. On our front porch we have 2 tables, one for holding dishes of food and the other for sitting around talking and eating, just enjoying the outdoors. I like to drink my morning coffee out there.

We just finished placing 5 cinder blocks (holes side up) down each side of the drive and planted little Moss Roses in them and then placed 5 solar lights down each side and one in the last block so we can tell where to stop. Of couse we grill or smoke year round even in the snow and rain :O))

The only thing I need is something to kill this vine that grows on the fence in the neighbors yard.
