Waterfalls for Your Yard

 What could be better after a hectic day?                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         A backyard waterfall may provide the serenity you need.  Backyard waterfalls offer endless hours of enjoyment. There are also benefits to installing a waterfall. First, the constant flow and movement will help keep your pond water clear and free of algae.  Second, a waterfall will aerate the water, which is necessary for growing plants and raising fish.   

Wondering what backyard waterfall design is right for you?  Considering the space you have available and your budget Blooms Landcare can make your dream become reality by creating a backyard waterfall that looks as though it was always there.  If improperly designed a backyard waterfall can be a disaster. 

Waterfalls add visual interest and a nice break in the monotony

Waterfall into Pool

of a pool’s typical design. The waterfall splashes in to your pool.  Remember that a taller waterfall creates more noise and motion in the pool. Personally, this is one of my favorite sounds.

Keeping colorful koi in a waterfall pond is a popular option for backyard design. If you don’t want the responsibility of caring for koi, you may opt for a pond with water-hardy plants instead. 

A waterfall wall flows out of a brick or stone wall into a base of pebbles. The sound is beautiful. Some prefer this because there is no pond maintenance required.

It is important to take your time choosing a waterfall design that fits your backyard, budget, and lifestyle.

Together we can create a soothing landscape as the centerpiece of your personal retreat.

Photo of the Day “JOY”

Over the past month my online presence, including blogs and social interaction has all but vanished.  I’ve decided to take this challenge “V7N Photo Scavenger Hunt” posted on facebook by Cricket.   All participates have 30 days to take their photos and share during the scavenger hunt.

I’m looking forward to a fun way to use my camera, share with others and add variety to this blog. 

Boldin driving the jeep

My first photo is from the carnival we attended Saturday afternoon after Rylee’s softball game.  This picture is a perfect vision of “JOY” My grandson, which is almost two years old is so happy.   I can see the joy in his beautiful face.  He’s so proud  showing how grownup he is while driving the jeep.  All my grandchildren fill my heart with joy!

Blooms Landcare

My youngest son has such a creative side.  Expecting his first child in a few months I’m happy to see his business will provide for them. 

Today, I want to spotlight his achievement.  Spending the last couple of years away from home.  My visits didn’t include taking time to travel around town and actually seeing his work.  Yes, I  received photos on my phone a few times.  

Now that I’m home again, we have decided that I’m going to lend my time and skills to his business for a small fee.  This will be a great venture!  I may lack in the online social media arena.  Not to worry, he offered to help me out.  Looking forward to attending events and networking with others in our area.   

My most precious benefit will be working near my grand baby.  I’m so fortunate to spend two days a week with my daughter’s children while she works, enough free time to play with Sara and a couple of days at his home office.  Although, I may get distracted often.

Traveling Stanley

Remember Stanley?  My nephew called and asked if  Stanley could visit.  If I could take him out on the town.  Each student in his first grade class dressed their Stanley and sent him on a trip. 

We took Stanley to the library, Chilli’s, fishing, across the ferry and to the visitors center.  Many photos were taken.  We had a great time with Stanley.   Almost lost him at the beach. 

His visit was short, only a week.  I packed him up with his pictures and sent him back to school. 

Stanley’s photos covered a large map placed in the hallway.  During open house we saw all the different places he traveled. 

This was a lot of fun and the children realized not everyone lives here in town.

Has Stanley visited you?

My First Fire

Opps!

Should I share this? 

 
Yes, I did it! 
 
While visiting with my grandkids  last night.. Thought I would fix a quick dinner.  Their choice,  chicken nuggets  with mac and cheese. 
 
I noticed a small amount of grease.  Really thought it would be fine  til after dinner.   We placed chicken nuggets on cookie sheet and started a pan of water on the stove top.   Sister went back outside while the baby and I got his jammies ready.  We were only gone for a couple minuets. 
 
Entering the kitchen I noticed small flames thru the glass door.  Thinking no way, I placed the baby in his chair. 
 
The fire grew!  It grew quickly!  I couldn’t find anything.. I was totally shocked!   Grabbed a bag of flour from pantry and doused the flames.  Gone.   Great.   Nope,  large  flames shortly flared.  Using more flour finally the flames were out permanently. 
 
Good thing my grand-daughter did not witness my fire in the oven.  I’m sure all the kids on the block would have been excited.
 
Yes, I had a huge mess to clean after dinner.  
 
In my fortysomething years I’ve never caused a fire in the oven.  
Wonder if my daughter will suggest McDonalds next time.

Fort Worth Stockshow & Rodeo Time

Today’s weather is great.  Lots of sunshine and a very light breeze.  Usually this time of year DFW offers cold windy days and wet frozen evenings.  You know it’s time for the stockshow to be in town when Mr. Winter hits.  We have 23 days of great rodeo action, world-class livestock shows, kid-friendly exhibits, daily live music, terrific food, the carnival midway, four acres of unique daily shopping and more. 

I think it’s been about four years since I visited the grounds.  We took my grand daughter and had a blast.  Of course when the kids are preschool age they are so much fun!  We rode all the rides and stood in long lines to get our snacks.  

 When was the last time you visited the Stock Show & Rodeo in your area?

Increasing My Presence Online

Focusing on the use of online advertising to direct traffic to my website. Placed ad for a team member on craigslist recently. My phone has not stopped ringing. Too bad these calls are mostly computer generated Some are individuals on the other end offering to guide me to riches. Don’t get me wrong, I have received genuine responses also.

These ads take very little time to place and require little or no registration. My ads on craigslist like many other free listing sites disappear or get pushed out of sight quickly. I believe the ads rank really high in Google. I find myself placing ads over and over, making some slight changes within the title. Still not convinced this is where I want to spend my time.

Sites that take more time to place an ad (30 minutes for some) and allow me to use tags, describe in great detail, add links and share with other sites actually get stronger results. Maybe it’s the audience.

I’ve started adding links to my social networking profiles, such as twitter and face book. These ads stick around longer, they remain on the site in view for a greater time. One advantage, once I place the ad I’m done! Should I refresh them often?

My goal is to use both types of advertising for a while and track my efforts.
