It's been a busy week and I apologize for ignoring my blog and other internet activities. Between laundry, baking, other chores, visitors on several days and a trip to the movie theater, we have been busy as bees. By the way, "Ice Age 3: Dawn of the Dinosaurs" got two thumbs up from all of us. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1080016/
Today's photo share is a before and after of the field that I affectionately refer to as the prairie. My father in law came over and mowed as it was well over waist high. While I was sad to see it go, we still live some what in town and the neighbors don't like having a "prairie" behind their homes. Plus the ticks are bad this year. Also, make sure you take a look at the last photo. It is a visitor that took up residence in the drainage ditch for our sump pump.
