This blog is about my garden and the outdoors. I am new to photography but I am trying to show some of the pretty things that grow here in Michigan. I love the wild things who visit me and I dont mind if they eat a bit here and there. I like it more if they let me take their picture. As time goes on I think I will try to show you around the beautiful area that I live in as well as my garden. I try to use my own pictures as much as possible but will also use pictures from the web. If I inadvertently use your photo or work without permission please email me and I will remove it or give credit if you prefer. I will give credit when I know who the owner is. I would ask that anyone using my pictures do the same.

fixing the roof.............

I now know why I never got time to work on the front garden. What a waste that would have been. My husband decided to fix the roof. It had to be done before winter but........well, you know how it is when men work. Or maybe its just mine.........the garden was trashed by falling shingles and a not so helpful child.

Not sure who made the most mess. Here is Gerry on the roof. photo b1b89bab-ef92-47f4-88b8-8bf4ab110e00_zps466d9097.jpg

Tristen wanted to go up there so bad, and I caught him half way up the ladder once. He didn't try it again. Not as far as I know anyway. Naturally I couldn't get much done as I had to keep looking out the window. He did not seem capable of following instructions. Well he is only 4 but still............never trust a child. So I caught him emptying stuff out of the tool kit, he fancies himself a carpenter

.....and Tristen is enjoying it
Notice all the shingles all over the glad I didn't get around to working there before now.

Yeah, between the two of them they pretty much made one heck of a mess. Ah well, never mind...........Maybe we will still get some nice weather. At least its cooler now. The garden itself is a big mess anyway. Might be just better to wait for Spring.

I think Tristen and Gerry work well together! LOL! I hope the roof is fixed now! If the weather is nice, do a little gardening, so you won't have to do much next year ;o) Hugs ;o)

I vote to let it go till spring. The drought made a mess of my garden. I am going to let it go and hope for a better one next summer.

Way to go on fixing your roof! Your kids seem to work well together, and they look too cute when they are trying, hehe! It's actually nice to see that you are exerting effort in restoring your roof before unfavorable weather sets in. Just keep with routine checkups to maintain your roof's quality.
