Boo!

Hubby and I celebrated our 20th Anniversary on July 30 by going to an upscale steak house here in Quincy, IL.
Upon walking out, Hubby noticed a kitten under the vehicle in front of ours. Hubby is a true cat whisperer! He got out and tried to coax her out but she wouldn't budge.

It has been brought to my attention that you have not seen much of my yard and gardens this summer.
 
 So with that in mind, you can get a glimpse of the yard while I am showing you our new patio furniture.

Remember this homemade bubbler fountain,
 right off our back patio?...
I made it by sinking a huge plastic tote in the ground, covering it with three barbecue grill grates and topping it off with rock and a rock-looking fiberglass form.
