FlowerBed Makeover Part touches!

photo by Suzanne * 11-19-2011

It's been almost 2 weeks since I started my flowerbed makeover, and, I have finally pieced the concluding video together for viewing.  Let's see how I did!


Thank you, my gracious readers...oops...I mean, viewers this time- for spending a little time with me in my back yard, just messing around!  I'm sure you spotted the surprise 'cameo' views of me when Karo got a hold of the camera.  I know, I know, the wild hair needs some help!!!  Will get to that, it was rather windy outside that day.  But, we'll see how the small garden progresses throughout the winter.  And I will post updated photos from time to time.

And, now, I would like to take a moment to introduce a new 'blogmate' to MyTexasGardens.  Please welcome 'Shady Del Knight'.

Shady hails from York, PA. where the music scene was very 'hot' in the 1950's, 1960's, and, I'm sure, still is.  He offers up a fine repertoire of the greatest hits, and the not-so-greatest hits of the day.  You will be able to listen to some of the old hits right from his blog.  And, for guest speakers, or writers,  Shady dives deep into the archives and introduces us to some of the fabulous DJ's of the 1950's and 1960's.  He brings you to his days as a teenager, who frequented a popular dance spot in York, PA.  Well, you'll have to visit his blog yourself for that exciting story!  Shady's a bit of 'rock n' roll', and, in my opinion, a 'lot of soul'...right up my alley!

I have placed Shady's photo (I hope you don't mind Shady) and blog link above, but, it you can't get to it from above, go to my sidebar of 'my favorite reads', and click on his link there.  You can also find his link on my other blog sidebar at KardKornerKrib.   

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  We had plenty to eat, and, then some.  And, now, we're heading into the Christmas Season with all the sales and festivities getting underway!  Please remember to use caution when driving and shopping this year!  And, I'll try to get some pics of the Christmas Tree downtown Fort Worth.  They had the tree lighting ceremonies last nite, but we stayed in-still recouperating from the feast of the day before.

FlowerBed Makeover, Part I...Both Hands On Deck!

After the hard, callous, "fried-egg-on-the-sidewalk" summer, my TexasGardens suffered tremendously!  So, I've begun the slow process of rebuilding at least a few of my flower gardens.  I will have to relinquish some of them, as the winter will probably come fast and there will not be much time to accomplish the entire task.

So, I've started small and light...and, decided to video the process.  Here is Part I of 2 parts of my 1st garden makeover.  THIS SHOULD BE FUN!!!

Well, what do you think?  I'm not much of a speaker... but, maybe, with a little practice I'll get there.  And, the buffering of video makes the viewing time longer...I apologize for that.  The project is complete and I hope to post the remainder of the video in a few days.  In the meantime, thank you for spending a little time with me in my yard, and please stop by again!

Happy Thanksgiving from 'MyTexasGardens'!!!
