If you build it you can put stuff on it

My trusty Radio Flyer has seen better days

Jazz seems to know when an adventure is about to begin, especially when it means going down into the woods for a walk longer than a trip to the mailbox. She was beside herself to get started, but had to be bribed with several pieces of cookie for the fake photo shoot when we got back.

Jealous Steph? Here I am having an adventure without you, while you blog about those damn black dogs you play with now more than me. Whatever.

We headed to the far end of the field to collect rocks for my latest project, rusty wagon rattling all the way down over the bumpy trail. I've had an idea floating around in my head now for a while to build a display area in the corner of the deck out of rocks. Big ones.

I also got it in my head I wanted a Strawberry Planter. A lady on GardenWeb mentioned she found one at the Lowes in Southern Maine. My trip to the library yesterday did a really big swing so I could say the new Brewer Lowes was on the way. Sort of.

Okay not at all! But I wanted one.
While I was there I bought a few plants to put into it. I still want one of these smaller designed planters to put trailing African Violets in.
