Lawn and Garden Watering Needs – Summer vs Fall

People are creatures of habit. If they are used to watching a certain TV show at a specific day and time, and then the show's broadcast changes, many will stop watching it. Or, if they are taught from a young age to always turn the light out when leaving a room likely this habit will continue into their adult years. Well, what are the sure signs that summer is ending and the autumn season he fast approaching? Baseball pennant races, sure. Leaves on trees changing colour? Perhaps, … [Read more...]

Home Renovation Project Listing – Eves Trough / Gutter Replacement

bay window fascia and gutter

A while back we had a contractor, recommended by a friend, replace the gutters and down spouts in our 22 year old home. Today, we provide that page for our eves trough or gutter replacement project.

Snow Shovel Review

Ergonomic Snow Shovel

Snow Shovel. Simple title, eh? ;) We have needed a new snow shovel for years.  The one which has been my mainstay for what seems like forever, with a black plastic blade, was so used that the blade had worn down to almost the size of a tooth pick; almost. A few days ago I was was having breakfast in the kitchen and the breakfast show on City TV, with Kevin and Dena, was playing so I could catch up on the morning's events.

Garden Makeover – Part 31 – Tulips More Visible

Yesterday in Part 30, we took our first look at some of our front garden's tulips were starting to sprout out from their wintery garden bed. Today we can see them much more clearly a mere 3 days later. Now, if you recall, we had the following picture of the West side of our front garden. From this picture, we cannot see any of the new shoots of the dozen Stella D'Or Day Lilies which were planted along the concrete boundary between the garden and the driveway because of all the … [Read more...]
