A Tale of Two Yards
Well, it's a little more than an hour later and we are now back to blogging. It was time for our Sunday Morning Bicycle Ride and when duty calls, the blog takes a back seat. We rode down to Hilda's and then over to Bella Vita for a real tasty breakfast. Idaho Falls downtown is totally deserted on Sunday mornings--a stark contrast to the other six days of the week. The geese flying overhead far outnumber the vehicles on the streets. The river is glass calm and smooth this morning--wonderfully beautiful.
Yesterday unfolded as advertised. Winter squashes abounded at the Farmers Market for a mere 35 cents a pound. You can't really grow them than inexpensively considering how much garden space they take up. We learned a lot at the Nursery and enjoyed a splendid time at the power company's open house.
Susun poses in the photo below beneath our beloved water tower. It's funky, that's for sure. We know one LBR who would dearly love to see it painted something less garish than the red, white and blue stripes. However, it's so funky it's really appealing to both of us. Whenever we travel anywhere, we play a game to see who is the first one to see the water tower from a distance. It's sort of like a giant push pin in the 3-D terrain of the Snake River Plain. It's actually easier to spot the water tower than it is the soaring LDS Temple here. Anyway, we will know think of this photo every time we play "Spot The Water Tower" in the future.
Have a great day & Many Cheers! jp

Awe come on, Johnny, you could have a purty yard in AZ with native plants,too. But during that several month hiatus when you are gone that summer monsoon rain would indeed bring on the weeds and they'd still have to be picked. That's why landscapers and yard maintenance folks became popular for folks with two homes! Either they are mowing, weeding, or shoveling snow. Makes no difference to them, just the adjacent neighbors. I bet Gary begged GH and even bought him beer to do your yard:)
We're not done yet neither. Gonna edge it next weekend ;-)
My next door neighbor has pretty grass. He's always out there messin' with it. Spraying, mowing, edging, watering, fooling with his sprinkler heads, hunting down and killing dandelions. No thanks!
