Ponderosa Pictures

I am still trying to cover the Ponderosa in pictures. It is NOT that easy people. First do ya'll know how hot it is out there. Second do ya'll know how big this place is? So, next time I tell ya'll I am dragging hoses...remember there are 16 acres involved in this dragging o'tay! Hope ya'll will enjoy this lil vitural tour you are about to take. It is a beautiful day today, so enjoy! Ya'll can also click on the pictures and they will enlarge for better snooping..I mean viewing :-))
This is the left entrance of the drive way.
This is the right entrance to the drive way.
The drive way is separated by a juniper bed in the center.
Okay I have mess up this posting so many time by inserting and removing pictures so they are not in the correct order I wanted.. but I no longer care any more .. I am tired of re-doing it. So ya'll are just going to have to deal with my imperfection, yea I said it...Deal with it no choice!
The back forty I call it this is located to the side and behind the mole hole where I dwell.
Hot biscuit is by the green house area.
The mole hole, where I dwell.
Behind the main house, the split rail fence bed I did not too long ago.
The side yard - remember that is where Brookes' wedding took place at the gazebo. Here is one link. Here is the second link. Here is the third link to the wedding photos for those who didn't get to view them the first time. Go a head I will wait...still waiting..hurry up for petes sakes people ya'll think I got all day, man ya'll take advantage of good natured people like me!
The back side of the main house will the well house in stone. Heading towards the gazebo.
The lil barn I painted in the very back of the main house yard.
Across the pond looking toward the main house.
The side yard by the garage heading towards the Koi pond.Mom saw me out snapping pictures called me over to point something out. Uhmmm Michel and Otin please take note this is KayKay my Mom...so no lip service on who's house it really is!Look how pretty
Looking down from the garage, also where company parks in front of the parking meters making sure folks don't visit too long, unless they have the coins for parking...bawhahahaha!
Yes, the lantern works it has a light in it, there are several around here like that.
That's it folks, the tour is over... for now
(only 8 acres left to take pictures of)
you don't have to go home
but cha gotta get the hell on up out of here now..byebye
In fact go visit a some other buds of mine,
Braja, Pastor Sharon and Hit 40
Good day... I said Good day already!

Hit 40 said...

Braja seems too happy and peaceful for me??? I don't know if I can pop back again to her site with my negative dark energy. I don't want to bring down her zen like thing going. I just want to post snarky rude comments. I don't think her flock would like my crude comment posting.

The ponderosa is beautiful!!! I will come hide if they decide to come take me away.

darsden said...

Hit 40-you can't be too snarky for Braja, she will tell ya where to go...don't worry. She is all about ... speak your mind :-)) Com'on over and hide I have alcohol here!

SweetPeaSurry said...

Tabitha@ichoosebliss said...

Your home is gorgeous Dar!!

Michel said...

Umm Dar! You didn't tell me you lived in a really really cool house!

I totally would have been nicer! chaaa!

In my defense, I didn't realize that you might have something I would want to usurp. Therefore, I may (repeat MAY) suck up to you for a bit.

Probably not though. I'm fickle like that.

otin said...

darsden said...

Hit 40-all in good time woman! I have the inside of the mole hole ready to go .. including me caught in the mirror taking the pictures so that might help in the Michel questioning of who's. Car collection is on the way too...great memory by the way almost like you were a teacher or sumpin! The pimped out crib and whips are on the way...hold on!

dizzblnd said...

What a beautiful piece of property! No wonder you are such a great photographer. You have a LOT to work with. Now hurry up and post the 2nd half of the property! LOL

darsden said...

dizzblnd-sssh gotta get the mower out first and do some mowing and weed eating...started today but went hell no not with the grass not being done. I would be so fired. Yes, I am blessed to be able to capture the folks place :-))

lisa said...

Nice diggs! Who cuts the grass?

darsden said...

Lisa-thankyou-dang now you want pictures of the tractors and mowers,(pointing) him, him, and her

blueviolet said...

I can not even believe what a gorgeous piece of land you have there. You are incredibly blessed.

darsden said...

blueviolet-welcome lovely to have you here. I know how blessed I am believe me. I am very thankful everyday, esp considering how devastated the coast was after Katrina and how blessed we were. It is my folks place can't take credit for it at all. :-)

darsden said...

blueviolet-I am coming back to tell you how much I appreciate you signing up on the side bar over there. Com'on back anytime we will have some ice tea over in the arbor.

Pearl said...

Wow, Dar. What a beautiful place!!

darsden said...

Pearl- thank you very much, my folks worked very hard for and continue working hard on it.. well we all do our part :-))

otin said...

Oh, I was looking for a new post, and realized that it was still just you, bragging about your lavish lifestyle! :)

Pastor Sharon said...

Dar,
We got home from Texas yesterday so I am just now touring the Ponderosa. I wanted to give you a heads up that we will be packing to come and visit the sanctuary of acreage. No need to wait up for us but leave a lantern on. You'll never know I was there. . . I'll be by the pond, in the gazebo, or maybe in a tree. . . You have a lovely home/sanctuary!

darsden said...

otin-LOL oooooh you feelings are showing ;-)

Pastor Sharon-I thought I saw somebody out there amongst the trees..com'on in the ice tea is ready. Thank you very much...Welcome home to your own bed I know how great it is to be home and in your own bed.

Medora said...

I worked at a Ponderosa in high school and it didn't look anything like this! Great pics!

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

Oh Darsden! Your folks place is absolutely breathtaking! How cool that you take care of things for them - I'm sure they appreciate it, because it keeps it looking stellar! :) I'd live in a 'mole hole' too if I were able to hang out in a beautiful place like that - and I know all about dragging hoses all over...those things get heavy when you're traversing over long distances! :)

Hit 40 said...

It took me a minute to figure out your comment. I also liked U turn. The website weeds explains why the 2 got killed in episode one this season in the first few minutes. The writer said that she wanted to start the season off with a bang.

otin said...

When are you going to show us pictures of your servants? LMAO!

darsden said...

otin-I am the servant!

Reddirt Woman said...

You need some help on the ponderosa, Dar? I work for food and a dry place for me and my girls to sleep...

All of your folks and your hard work is really showing.

By the way, did your 'gatoe find it's way home?

Love you, girl, you are rockin' and rollin' the blog world...

Helen xoxox

Reddirt Woman said...

that 'gator... dang. Good proofreaders are hard to find.

♥ Braja said...

Dar honey, this is a comment on your post....lemme know if you get it, and answer me with it...let's see how it worked, ok?

Twisted Fencepost said...

Beautiful place! You had me fooled, by that mole hole comment. Before I've only seen yard pictures and now you show me 16 acres. And I thought my peach was deceiving. tee hee
You are so funny!

darsden said...

Twisted Fencepost-thank you Becky, it's the folks place...I do live in the lil mole hole by the big blue pool...it's about 400 sq feet darling..
