I stepped out the door this morning to check on the garden and was shocked to see this:
Yes, one whole morning glory flower on that whole vine. As the days got shorter, I guess the vine did not get as much sun as it wanted, so its been weeks since I have seen a single flower on it.
Is it any wonder they are named morning GLORY? The flowers absolutely look as if there is a light source shining out from their center.
Hey, look what I did! My first furniture painting experiment. It went pretty well, if I do say so myself! I’ve only thought about painting this chair for about five years. What can I say? I have a hard time making decisions :)
The other day I was flipping back through my own blog, looking for something or other, and I realized that yes, quite a bit of progress has been made on the house. Here are pictures from this morning–the siding is up, and a lot of the painting is done. The roof is bare–they had to strip off THREE layers of old shingles! And already, by the end of today, J. the contractor had a good portion of the roof re-shingled!
The front of the house:

And that’s all the news that’s fit to print tonight. Hope you all have a good and relaxing weekend!
