Hi Folks ~ Hope you are enjoying the start of this new week. I am feeling so motivated after what happened here on Saturday. I have been blessed. My 'widow's fog' is drifting away. It is something you can't help, it envelops you after you lose your husband, until in time it starts to dissipate. God has been my strength and will be so until my time on this earth is over. He has given me a lovely church family and I am thankful. I can't love Mark in person anymore, but I can love so many others.
Plum Cottage is 'plummy' once again and I LOVE it. It makes me feel happy, creative, & thankful.
Sat. I had one bloom open from my fantastic 'Hugs-n-kisses' hibiscus. The first photo is at the start of the day, the second later in the afternoon. I saw this plant at HD soon after Mark left this planet and the colors drew me to it, then when I saw the name of the plant, that did it. The thing 'jumped' into my cart, with a little help from me. :-)
'Granada' was a huge hit, right where everyone could see it and almost at nose level for sniffing, and let me tell you people did plenty of that, some even going back for seconds and thirds. :-)
I've gone through the photos from Sat. and it may end up being a couple of posts. Seeing them just made me love my 'helpers' all the more.
Until then, here's the 'scullery' wall, east side, which is seen from the driveway. I'll show before, during and after pics.
I need to move the birdcage a little to the left to center it in the space and I think I'm going to paint it that aqua color also. It will really look tropical then. I want to paint the aluminum piece too. The droopy fern on the white stand will perk up, it needed a good drink of water, as it had been neglected lately.
Well, that's it for now. More to come later.
Thank you all so much for your comments, they mean a lot to me.
