Rocks from our travels mounted in cememt

We have collected rocks from our trips to the Grand Canyon, North Dakota and Missouri and finally decided to mount them in concrete. I filled an old terra cotta plant saucer with cement and placed the rocks in to harden, then Frank mounted the dish securely to the last of the Japanese Maple tree stump.

Our birdbath was leaking so we sprayed with white rubber sealant. It looks a lot nicer and now it holds water.

Repaired Girl Figurine

Someone left a broken girl figurine at a rental and I filled it with cement, made a block of cement to mount it and put into garden.

Tree cutting at Nanny's house

Sorry for the format. I can only enter captions at the bottom but these are pictures of the crew rigging the ropes to safely fell the limbs and/or trees. Tyler pulling brush, running the chipper ( 4 truckloads of mulch  that I am using to mulch around trees, walks, everything. Bridget and Zoey watching and the finished look.
