Good morning everyone ~ Have already had T-storms and some rain this morning. More expected through the next few days. I decided to take my camera to the ‘jobsite’ this morning and I’m glad I did. The colors were beautiful!
These next two shots were about 30 minutes later, colors gone.
This picture was taken in my driveway area after I got home. Street not very busy at this time of morning on a Saturday. The clouds are to the east, out over the ocean, which is about 3 miles away.
Loved the look of this statue this morning, the lighting was really nice.
The next photos are of the rose ‘Granada’.
This is one of the roses I got in trade with Connie of Hartwood Roses. It is a seedling rose from the San Francisco cemetary.
This is an unknown miniature rose.
I found out about a new thrift store close to me that is huge and decided to go check it out. I only wanted to spend $20. My bill was $20.13. I bought three pair of slacks, and a pair of Easy Spirit shoes, almost like new, $9.99.
Also bought this piece although it wasn’t necessary but it spoke to me and it was $2.99. It looks like carved wood, but it is some sort of composite material.
I put it in the little screened porch off the kitchen, which is the entry way into my little cottage. I rearranged some pieces, but am going to tweak this whole area some more as I’m not really thrilled with it. I look forward to having the cottage outside walls painted too. (Still need to trim the a.c. unit.) The lion’s head fountain was given to me. I need to paint it as the gray color just doesn’t work. Hmmm.
The galvanized bucket catches the water from the a.c. and I then use it to water plants.
The more I look at this arrangement, the more I’m not crazy about it at all. At least looking at it here in the a.c. I can think of ways to rework it.
My latest project, was painting two wrought iron chairs (2 more to paint yet), and the trim on the shed’s door.
I wanted some sort of decoration to put on the door as it is a waiting canvas.
I got this out of my ‘stash’ of stuff that DH picked up through the years. It has a couple of hearts so is perfect. I just need to do some repair and paint it, then screw it to the door.
That’s it for now.
Have a great weekend.
