the grass is green, the peonies are full of buds and the much needed ants :)
the myrtle is lovely, the hydrangeas and hostas are looking hopeful.
the weeds are thriving :(
the sidewalks really need to be trimmed.
yet another thing to add to the tada list
I moved the light-filled bird cage to the porch = perfection!
I still want to rehang white curtains... (I like them better) but what I could find in my stash were 4 taupe sheets so that's what I hung up for now.
I have to tell you that this is one of mine and Duanes favorite places to relax. Once the curtains are up, when we want to sit out there we don't pull them entirely closed but we close them partially and let me tell you, it feels like a bit of a childs hideaway for adults! Like having a fort or tent on the porch!
The secrets out... sometimes I want to be a bit of a recluse and not mingle with everyone that walks by on our sidewalk. In my defense, it's a pretty busy sidewalk!
And...o.k. I cheated on the seat cushions, I have yet to make them so I reverted to my old ways and wrapped them in material, this time sheets, so that it's easy to change them and wash them.
well that and because I haven't found time to sew new ones.
So even though we are being blessed with more rain than we can handle in places...
we are blessed to be warm and dry snuggled up in our home.
My prayers go out to the victims of the horrible storms in Joplin Mo. and all of the other communities in the neighboring states and their precious people who have had to experience the devestation.
