Thumbs up Fountain Project moving along!

Gotta keep doing what we deaux……..progressing! While the brick masons are deep into this project I have spread 12 bags of fertilizer, 15 bags of fungicide, 15 bags of grub & insect control, sprayed Round-up on the occasional out of place weeds and put out 2 bags of fire ant control for existing mounds over the last 3 days. Still have to fill all the bird feeders, replace some light bulbs over the pool, straighten-up my trophy room, and clean out the dang garage! I should have it all orderly by the time this national emergency is lifted......maybe not, but the property will be looking dang good! Give me a minute to get the pics to load.

We have smuggled in the sugar pot! Got across the Sabine River, contraband, embargo and alligators could not stop us. The brick mason sealed and painted the inside of the fountain after building a platform for the pot.....his job is done. Tomorrow hopefully drill a hole thru the pot and hopefully get this 800 pound beast in place. I ordered the pool equipment , water jets and lights from my pool guy.....dang stuff is over-priced I tell ya!!! Name:  20200413_162147.jpg
