Stress makes me ill therefore Wednesday October the 29th I was fairly feeble with the strength of a over-cooked noodle. It made me really mad too because this was the absolute most beautiful day of the year. Mid 60’s, partly cloudy, slight breeze, trees beginning to change colors and I couldn’t make it out of my yard. Oh well, I didn’t even make it out of the house on Tuesday so the yard was an improvement. So join me on a brief tour of my front porch and yard.
Here is what I saw.
I planted these on each corner of the porch 2 years ago with visions of plush, green ivy covering my entire sitting area in a bower of loveliness. They have made it about 2 feet. But they aren’t dead! A real achievement for me…….
I planted this the same year as the ivy, unlike its climbing counterpart this thing has taken over my life and has placed me on this evenings menu. It simply will. not. stop.
View from my rocking chair. Yes, I know I need to pick up limbs and my swing needs a cushion, I still love it, my dad made it for me as a birthday present about 5 years ago (Thanks Dad!)
Old brick in the garden.
Another flower living in spite of me.
Leaves changing on the Bradford Pear….
My Eucalyptus tree! I planted it 2 years ago as well and ta da! It was a twig and now taller than I am!
Cool growth on one of those limbs we need to pick up…..
Neighbors tree as seen through our fence post, “Hi Y’all!”
Acorn and moss in a shady corner.
I got back to the porch only to find my small human doing addition with a soap stone on the porch boards.
This is what homeschooling looks like people.
Praying Insect, I guess he prayed over me as I felt MUCH better the next day.
That is all folks and yes, I do have a squirrel feeder that looks like a mini picnic table, don’t judge.
See y’all later ‘gator’s!
