Our new grape arbor and shaded spot on the deck.

I'm reposting these from below. After a little yard work and truck maintenance I sat down in our new shaded corner on the deck. The sun was shining and  I leaned back in the chair and looked up..... see the picture below for the peaceful view.

This is the results we hoped we would get. A natural shaded area where we can sit and watch the grapes grow.  Now that is a view I could get use to.

Here is what it looks like from above.

Some of the potted flowers growing on the deck. Begonia

Getting back to fun things.

Although I have not been away (on vacation) I have been at other tasks. Getting the yard and garden ready for summer. Doing some home upkeep projects. Doing some home improvement projects. Spending time with family and friends. The camera was never far away.

Here is one of the home improvement projects. We finally built an arbor for our grapevine. At the same time we are providing a shaded area on our deck.
This is the view from the second floor looking down on the new arbor.

Things you don't see everyday.

Lay still stop moving.

Feed me mom...no... feed me first.

Don't cry over this.

Is this what the rapture looks like up close?
