I am almost finished painting and am I glad because my knees and hips are all wore out. The last couple days I kept thinking how did I do this for a living and on big houses. I believe this will be the last time I will be painting any large structure or at least one that you need a ladder for. I just have some touch up to do then on to the porches. I am trying to get this all done before the snow fly’s again. My garden has been a little neglected but I am confident I can tidy it all up after a little rest. My neighbor Korie’s puppy Mak got free and he always runs to my house. This time I wasn’t home and he managed to explore all threw my tomato garden. They are a little tipped over but no real damage done. This little 5 month old puppy is 45 lbs! During one of my breaks while painting I went threw and checked to see if any picking was in order and sure enough I had cucumbers ready ! I picked 17 of them. The picture doesn’t show 17 because I ate a couple. I also picked 2 onions but I ate one of them, Also 3 tomatoes but I ate them. I made a cucumber,tomato, onion salad.
My Stargazer Lillys made their appearance
My Rose of Sharon has just started to bloom. The added bonus is my neighbor brought me over a bunch of slips to root of all colors. I can’t wait to get them planted and on their way.
Last year I was not able to get pictures of all the color changes of my Quick Fire Hydrangea. This year I made sure I did. (on a painting break lol)
My sister picked this bush for me and I think it is a great pick!
