NEW ITEMS FOR THE HOME AND SPRING GARDEN
A few roses that I picked from the garden before the heat wave hit. So I could make some bouquets for the house.
I just love this rose, it's my 99 cent one and a favorite.
I always put a fresh bouquet in the guest bathroom to perk it up a little. These are few bouquets that I made up just before the 90 degree weather hit last week.
Now on to the back yard when my nasturtiums where in bloom and taking over the entire garden. They have since been removed and making way for my new plants.
Lili watching me, she wouldn't come out as she does not like the hose being on and will sit by the slider watching me. I know what she is thinking "now what is that woman up to".
I found this picture at Home Goods and I just had to have it to go with the rest of my rooster pictures. Love the old house and fence. It must be fall as there are hardly any leaves on the tree.
Found these canisters at Home Goods also - need a little change in the kitchen.
I have been cleaning out my closets and in a box I found some very old books over 100 years old that belonged to my Aunt-in-law. This was the best I could do with the pictures.
This was given to Aunt Alice from her father for Christmas in 1910.
Isn't the writing beautiful. The younger children now cannot write at all. They should bring penmanship back into the classrooms. Such a lovely book of poems and sayings. - A beautiful treasure.
One of my new chandlers from a friend. She was remodeling and didn't need it anymore so I got lucky. It is from Pottery Barn and goes with my French Country.
This is also from my friend and has so many pretty sparkles on it and it is from Lamps Are Us.
This is the Garden Guest Room, which I did for my granddaughter as she loves flowers as much as her grandmother does.
This was in the guest room. but I had it moved to the entrance hallway. I found this one at a garage sale.
Looking out to the front yard and you can see my roses and iris's in bloom. They don't look so good now with all the heat we have had and less water.
My white hydrangeas getting ready to bloom - can hardly wait to cut some and bring them into the house.
Some of my David Austin roses - they always smell so good.
This is Kevin, the little 10 year old that I pick up from school. Wow he is so smart and he keeps me on my toes. He is not giving up his water as he is looking for bugs and lizards.
This sunflower is compliments from the birds. Growing up between the cracks of the pavers. It was as big as a dinner plate. Thank you birds.
Waldo keeping an eye on me. He lets me know when we need to go into the yard for watering and picking up stuff. Won't leave me alone, but as soon as I put on my red crock shoes he is at the door ready to go and help.
Some of my geraniums in bloom.
My garden angels guarding my flowers.
My St Patrick rose. When it's a bud it's green and then as it opens up it turns yellow.
I see that Lili has ventured out on the patio, but keeping a sharp eye on me to be sure that I don't turn the water on. LOL She is so funny.
Waldo chewing on one of his bones along with his babies by his side's. You would think that a boy dog wouldn't care about stuffed animals, but he sure loves all of the them and Lili could care less. Has one on each side of him.
I took this picture in the house looking out the dining room window and my little friend came right up to the window to say hello. I have about 20 of them that live at my house and I have to refill 3 feeders every other day. Seems like all I do is make them their sugar water and boy do they let me know if they are empty.
Can you see the 5 hummers eating - I can sit for hours at the dining room table and watch them.
Sorry this is such a long post, but I just had so much to show you as I am afraid that it won't look like this very long. So many years of hard work in the garden.
Waldo, Lili and I hope that you will leave a comment as I read them all.
