Much of the day, we have been working in the yard and garden. Much of yesterday, workmen were here repairing winter damage, fixing this and that. Mr. Potter fixed the fence post, while John installed the new rain barrels and doors and latch on my garden shed. Below are some photos I took with my cell phone. I am linking this blog post to Michelle’s Nature Notes (ramblingwoods.com, link below left).

New 75-gallon rain barrels. Note the new brick work.
