Give Us a Hand!

These are my humble offerings for the Hoedown sponsored by Carol. They are the younger siblings in the family of tools back home in Florida. Their older brothers and sisters (whom they haven't even met yet!) are probably basking in the sun (if my daughter left them outside) or waiting patiently for me in the shed.

These young'uns don't have much work to do here in Illinois at the apartment. They tend to the few shrubs, the small flower bed in front, and the flower pots on the front porch.

My hubby got home just as I was taking the pictures and gave me the strangest look, even when I explained what the pictures were for (hoes? those aren't hoes!). He finally understood and did get a good chuckle when he looked at Carol's blog.

The baby tools will get to meet the rest of the family soon enough. We are going back home soon to list the house in Florida with a realtor, and we already have our eyes on some property (seven acres!) near a lake here in southern Illinois. I'm keeping my fingers crossed. I could really do some gardening, maybe even some farming, on seven acres.

  1. Yes, sometimes it is hard to explain the "hoe down" to others. But I am enjoying it.

    Your little tools are more than welcome, standing in for the real hoes stuck in a shed in Florida!
