I might make some silly rag dolls, for the fun of it, but this girl is mine, and makes me smile. (Click on the photos for closeup view.)
|The girl has attitude.|
|But a big heart, and a love of art. Seems like we should make another rhyme there, doesn't it?|
This weekend we spent two whole days just being lazy. Reading, lounging about, with a minimum of laundry and dishes done, putzing around with a few minor chores, but essentially recharging the ol' copper-tops. I did find the motivation to take a few photos of the Instant Fence and some other bits of landscaping that are thriving, so I figured to share those. The bees, butterflies and hummingbirds are seriously happy with me right now. Once the sunflower seed heads dry, the doves and squirrels will be too!
|The Instant Fence, from the inside. The tall grass looking stuff is lemongrass.|
|Instant Fence, fromthe outside.|
|These are my favorites--I love that deep rusty red. So do the bees.|
|These seed heads weigh a lb apiece, and before they started drooping, the plants stood seven feet tall!|
|Sunflowers and palm trees. My happy place.|
|This bed started out so sadly bare, but has almost filled in within the last three months.|
|I'm covering the mailbox with morning glories. Because I can. The pink flowers on the far trellis are Queen's Wreath, or Coral Vine...a native of Mexico. That whole trellis will be covered by the end of the summer.|
Hope everyone is enjoying the summer, whether that means playing outdoors, or hiding under the AC.
