The other morning I opened the front door, and was just so thankful that I have such a pretty garden view right now. I thought I’d share it with you.
The view to the left:
The view straight ahead:
And over a little farther to the right:
(Mr. Monk still enjoys sniffing around a little bit.)
He doesn’t mind at all when I yell to “get out of there.” He can’t hear that well.
Each of these marigold plants looks like a bouquet!
Here’s what I was trying to show you–these green plants (sweet potato vine?) grow so quickly that they just dwarf the lantanas. But up close I can still enjoy them!
A new old garden ornament. I’ve had this guy for years. I forgot to move him outside this summer:
“Mom, blogging is BORRRRING!!!”
Look at these huge fluffy sunflowers! I bought them at the farmer’s market.
And the latest project at Casa Debby? Repairing the deck. All those new boards were where the boards were missing or rotted through! I should have taken a before picture. MLG is multi-talented! He did this job too! Tomorrow he will stain it. And we talked about an even bigger, more exciting project! I’ll let you know if that actually starts happening.
At the same time as MLG was power-washing the deck, the electrician showed up! He replaced some burned out plugs, and next week he will put in some new fixtures that are long over-due. I am going to get track-lighting in the dining room-turned studio. It will be wonderful to have good lighting in there. Gotta tell you, with these two guys working simultaneously on the house, I SOOOOOOO wanted to stress eat. All I ate was an extra gummy calcium. Pretty good, huh?
And that’s how its going around here. Have a nice weekend everybody!
