Hard Days Night!!!

This is just a picture of the first Lilly I have grown from a bulb. It opened up yesterday. There are fourteen flowers on this one stem !!!. Pretty.

This is how cramped it is beside the shed. Nearly impossible to reach the top middle ,it's 14' long.

This is our shed after we emptied it and shoved it forward off the old floor.

This is our new floor! Actually the old metal shed doesn't deserve a floor this nice....

Today we worked all day building a new floor in our shed. That was hard . It was nearly dark when we finished. We have a 10' x 14' metal shed and the old floor had simply rotted away. Those metal sheds seem to sweat a lot. We could not take the shed apart because the screws are pretty old and not wanting to loosen. So we ( and by we , I mean me and Kim, and by me and Kim and mean Kim, picked it up and shoved it off the old floor. I was using a pressure washer that we lifted it up on so I could roll it while He lifted it and pushed from the opposite end. Surprisingly it moved OK. While Kim was rebuilding the floor I painted the roof. That was the second and last time I ever paint that roof!!. It is so cramped in that part of the backyard that we have it sitting in . There is about one and a half feet on one side, next to the garage and currently it is up against the fence on the other side. This is something that we have been needing to do for a couple years and today was the day. Next Saturday me and my Brother Tim are going to our Niece's wedding. Chelsea will be getting married in Newport at a park. I have been asked to be their photographer. They really should get a good back up. Hopefully it will be sunny and beautiful at the coast.

That sounds like a LOT of work. I'm glad I didn't have to move and paint a shed. I like your lily. It's pretty. We don't have any flowers in our yard, but then we don't have much of a yard. We did plant a papaya seed and now have a nice tree with several papayas growing on it.
Tell everyone at Chelsea's wedding hello from us. I wish we could be there.
Have a good day.
Love Karen

Looks like a lot of work. Tell Tim when you see him sorry I keep missing his calls and I'm terrible at returning calls.

Have fun at the wedding and post some photos
