Up and Running

All the plumbing was done yesterday, extra vinyl pipes had to be purchased and convinced to go together and today Mac started the pump for the first time since it was hit by a tree during hurricane Matthew last fall----it WORKED---no complaints, just the lovely sound of water going through the system.
He then put up a couple more pieces of lattice work and poles.  Tomorrow I'm going to help him move some plants over to go around the pool, my Confederate Rose, an orange tree and maybe the lemon one too.  We're going to put decorative rock around the base and keep the plants in pots.  The plants we had before put all kinds of roots under the pool and made the bottom very lumpy.
I pulled more weeds and fried my brains as it's quite a bit warmer today.  I'll post photos tomorrow when we get everything set up.

  2. You are both a couple of hard workers - all I managed today was to fill the porch pots with scarlet geraniums and put up my hanging baskets. However, the front of the house looks much improved and now ready for the summer season.

  8. I am envious. The nearest thing I got to a pool was a fish pond, which is in desperate need of attention. I wish I was ten years younger, I could have got stuck in then. Enjoy your pool when it's all done.

  10. Enjoy the pool! Will there be a pool-warming party? (Would it be called a pool-warming party, like a house-warming party?)

  11. A pool? That sounds lovely, especially with flowers around it. :)
