This morning John and I slept in and then went to our favorite diner called BigView Diner. There is always a crowd there and today was no different. We had a 30 min. wait but that just gives John and I time to catch up with each other and plan the rest of the day! After we got home I decided to add some paint to the ironwork piece I painted a few weeks ago. It was rusting pretty badly and I didn't want it to get ruined (even though I like some pieces rusty). I painted the whole thing with cream Rustoleum. Today I took brown and green and rubbed it over the little birds, leaves and stems on the piece. Here are the before and after pics:
It looks so much better now. It stands out from the brick more.
Then I had to take some pictures of what was going on in my garden. There really isn't a whole lot going on right at the moment but here are some pics of what is:
I love the color of this Dianthus!
This is a Rose of Sharon blossom. My Dad gave me this Rose of Sharon and it was only a seedling about 12" tall and now it is 4 feet tall and it has these wonderful raspberry sherbert colored flowers on it! Thanks Dad!!
This is my one hosta's flower. I thought the picture turned out really great with the sun coming behind it! Love it!
This is another hosta flower that is in bud. I thought it looked really fantastic so I thought I would snap a picture of it. I love the way it turned out!
Here is another view from the side.
This is the last of the phlox blossoms with a hosta nearby.
Two of my favorite ivy plants:
So all I have to do today is download the last of my BOCD from the library and read. What a great weekend! I wish they were all like these! Enjoy your day!!
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
