Greetings and Holykisses,
While on my walk yesterday, around the pastures; I came upon what we call: the Lightnin tree.
Taking a shortcut to get to my mowed path, I rounded the tree and discovered this little door.
Who lives here?
but no one answered.
I thought I'd misplaced one of my cans of spray paint.
But now, I suspect it was "borrowed."
Who lives here? I hope to go back today and get a glimpse of our new neighbors!
Speaking of those cans of spray paint.... don't stand still in my garden or you might get painted.
I kinda went nuts with the spray can.
Once the tub was repainted, .... then came the butterfly house.
Even the birdhouse. When I took it down and washed it, I was amazed that you can actually "see through" the plexi glass again. lol I think it freaked the birds out a little seeing their reflections; that or... they just aren't crazy about the jadite color like me. They haven't been swarming this feeder like they used to. "Get over it birds."
The garden is so colorful right now. We'll have alot of seeds to save for next year.
See those little shasta daisies? I pulled them up from the roadside, and planted them in front of this old gate. Inspite of their move.... they did really well and look at all the seed for next year!
I'll always love pink roses, but there's just something very special about wildflowers like daisies, and black eyed Susies.
Purple Coneflowers have climbed my favorites chart, all the way to the top.
Finally, they're growing and thriving in our garden.
Ohoh... the ladder stood still too long and it too got a shot of jade paint.
Actually, I stole it from our chicken coop in the barn. It was no longer being used as a roost, so I scrubbed it like a madwoman and if there was any remaining poo;... well...it got painted.* ;)
Now everything matches. Ohoh.. but that chair. No.... I didn't. Not yet anyway. lol
Remember a few weeks ago, I asked yall if you knew where I could find pink yarrow?
No one had seen any. I have yellow, and white planted, but no pink. When I went to the nursery I asked for it... and they said, "No pink, but how about red?" I didn't even know it came in red! Another new planting, climbing my favorites chart.
Last night, I went to the coop to say goodnight to the girls and closed their door.
As I went inside the shed to grab something, a huge dragonfly came inside the shed. It went to the light... just like dragonflies do. I flipped the switch so it wouldn't get hurt on the lightbulb and then... it landed on me. Right on the front of my neck. It was BIG! So I cupped my hand around it and went to the house and asked Mike to take a picture of it.
Isn't it pretty!!! I was DELIGHTED!!!
What a gift.
She even had blue eyes!
Thank you Lord!!!
Well, it's supposed to reach near 100 degrees today. I'm gonna go play in the sunshine!
Have a great weekend everyone!
Crank yer praise!
