Here we are – football season is here – there’s a major college game on TV tomorrow night!! Where is your cornhole game? Are you planning on having tailgate parties or just staying at home and watch the games on TV? Makes no difference, you can play cornhole in the college parking lot; and you can play cornhole in the backyard. Either way, it’s a fun way to relax before the game if you’re tailgating. If you’re watching it on TV, then relax before the game, during halftime, and after the game. If you don’t have a cornhole game, you need to get one – NOW!! This is a great game and you will enjoy it all year long.
Not one that you would expect to see hummingbird bathe in! It’s a great little exotic bird bath that other birds bathe in and it is neat! We found it a few months back and were so impressed we wanted to let everybody know about it. This is a classy designed bird bath that makes your backyard look great! If you put it in the garden and the little feathered folks come; don’t be surprised because it has a certain attraction that you and the birds will love. We found it pouring through the internet looking for something a little bit special; and we found it! Take a look and let us know what you think!!
What’s a Herb Caddy? It’s a neat little planter arrangement that puts a handful of herbs at your fingertips. You don’t have to go outside and craw around on the ground to pick a couple snips of your favorite flavoring. All you do is walk over to the window by your kitchen counter a pluck a couple sprigs! The one we saw had three little colorful pots to plant in; and it doubled as a decorative centerpiece for cut flowers or some other seasonal decoration in case your not into herb growing. Best part about it was the price! What are your favorite herbs? You can have them in the kitchen, sun room, or out on the patio with this little caddy!
That’s right!! It’s time to feed the birds because they are hungry. I know they can work hard to get plenty of food the natural way; but what’s to say we can’t help them a little bit!! Besides, it kind of cool to watch the little folks chow down in your backyard. There is somewhere around a million bird feeders out there to pick from so you don’t have to look hard for one. If you’re smart though, you’ll pick one made by Droll Yankees – I say they are the best!! But don’t take my word for it – try one yourself. They have an abundant of choices and if you pick one with side perches and feeder spots you won’t have to worry about squirrels chewing up you new bird feeder so you don’t have to throw it away!! We found one really neat Droll Yankees feeder the other day – it’s fairly new on the market – we think you will like it.
The grill in my backyard is never left alone on a summer day. I love using my grill when it’s nice out. Whether it’s to grill up some steaks or warm up some hamburger patties, it makes delicious dishes. I’ve even grilled vegetables on it before. Because when you make shish kabobs, they’re absolutely to die for. You just put everything on a skewer, and you’re all ready to go.
But even if I’m really avid about using my barbecue, I’m also smart about it. When I use my grill, I always put on grilling gloves to make sure my hands are safe from the flames. Because when I get into grilling, sometimes I’m not as careful as I should be. So I have adequate safety gear to make sure I don’t burn myself while I’m trying to grill food.
Whenever I cook on the barbecue grill, everyone can smell it. They love the scent of freshly grilled food. Luckily they’re not smelling anything burning, though, including my hands. That’s because I’m always safe when I grill. Because when I wear my grilling gloves, I can guarantee I’ll come out of the grilling session without any burns on my hands.
Why not like these doves? Here’s a neat and inexpensive way to add a little outdoor accent to your backyard, patio, or deck. If you want, these birds will even look good in the sunroom. Best part about these doves – they won’t empty your bird feeder in half an hour like the real doves do!! They’re made of cast aluminum so they won’t rust and have a cool looking bronze finish. One other plus – they are not expensive – that’s always a plus! After the flood, Noah sent out a raven but it kept going to and fro until the waters had dried up. When Noah sent out a dove it returned with an olive branch proving that the land was not safe from the flooding waters. Put a little Noah knowledge in your backyard.
What’s “top of the line” mean? It’s like one of the best. We did see a fire table the other day that was exceptionally elegant; and just a little pricy! We liked it because of several features: 1) it’s round so you can sit more folks around it without having to worry about corners; 2) it has a really classy looking granite mantel; 3) it comes with black fire glass in the fire bowl instead of lava rock; 4) it’s got a neat looking wicker base; and 5) it does not cost $1000.00. You can find quite a few fire tables on the market that are similar to this one but they start at $1200 & and average $1400-1500. So this one is a deal!! Take a look and see what you think!!
You would think that birds would nest in the trees. Wrong!! They nest wherever they want to. We had one pair build a nest in one of my wife’s hanging plants – they did make a mess but we hope the babies thrived. For two years in a row we had birds build nests in our gazebo – one the little nestlings did not make it – we found it laying on the floor but it’s brothers and sisters made it – good for them. What we did find out was that the little feathered folks do a lot of hard work building those nests; and the nests are pretty substantial. What else we found out was that the little folks do not take the nests down when they are done!! We have to clean up the hanging basket and the gazebo. Oh Well!! We need to get more birdhouses. Take a look at this one we found – note! It has a half roof that lifts up so you can clean it out – great idea.
I didn’t know either until I did a little research. And what I found out was that they are not only very popular but they are also really good looking. Bearing the distinct design fostered by the English architect Sir Ewin Lutyen, the Lutyen bench is a replica of his traditional bench. Learn something every day don’t you. Found out a long time ago that I learned more when I kept my ears and eyes open and kept my mouth shut! That was some good advice from a wise mentor! I looked at some of these Lutyen benches and they’re reasonably priced. If you’re looking for a nice bench for your patio, deck, or backyard – take a look at one of these – best bet is you will like them.
That’s right! Time to put a Baja lounger in your pool!! You won’t be sorry you did. What’s a Baja lounger anyway? We found them looking at a web site for TRC Recreation – pretty neat. These folks started making products back in 1957 – that’s almost 70 years ago!! They were the leader in vinyl coated flotation products. Their SKI-MASTER Vinyl-Coated Ski Belt was the first vinyl coated foam floatation product every marketed. So when they say their Baja lounger is the best, I believe it. So now you get a little history with your blog – that’s a two for one!! Anyway, take a look at their Baja lounger – you might get one for your summer fun at the pool.
