Springtime at Grimmwood


While it might not feel like spring...the trees are all budded out and the birds are singing...even the bullfrogs sing a bit at night!

We are having some work done at Grimmwood...a retaining wall will be in place soon with steps leading to the pond. Our contractor met with us on Saturday and plans are underway.

Marvin did a little project that we have been planning as well.

Located right behind the swing on the porch, we put up some vintage car tags from al the places we have lived as a married couple....Tennessee, Georgia, Kentucky and two counties in Alabama.

It was sprinkling rain as we headed out on Sunday morning....April showers bring May flowers.

Cute idea with the tags! It rained lightly most of Sunday but then hard during the night and into this morning. Grimmwood will be REALLY green the next time you visit! Steps down to the pond will be wonderful.

Spring has definitely been an odd one this year. It feels a bit more like those from a long time ago. I find each day is different. I don't know whether I will be sleeveless or in a cardigan.
Your little Grimmwood reminds me of our cabin. It is so peaceful each time we go. Part of the charm is the setting and the fact that I don't get much cell service there, so I really do unplug. I always leave refreshed.

The car tags are a great idea! Enjoy your week, Arlene.

I like the way you displayed the tags. That's a great conversation starter, too!

I love the car tags! I paint on ours. We also have tags from Louis Dean’s father in law from 1939.....they hang on the outside wall by our gazebo.

That is a great way to display the car tags and enjoy the memories as you swing away on that great porch! The retaining wall and steps will be quite a project and will surely make it easier for you to access the pond. Can't wait to see the finished project!!

I love the car tags on the porch! How sweet that they are from all of the places you and Marvin have lived as a married couple! Fun stuff!

I love license plates! My son recently asked whether you had to pay extra for a fancy license plate. I told him yes, and he said, "Oh that's why that license plate says M-I-C-K-E-Y"
Yep, but you don't have to get 'em fancy for them to be special.
