We got a new microwave for over the stove.
We have had it for several months,
but Mike wasn't looking forward to installing it,
so it sat in its box in the dining room.
I asked him if he could possibly have it in
before my brother and sister-in-law's visit.
We are taking the older counter one
to a rental we now have.
again is the container with the shamrock plant and its shamrock leaves and pink flowers. I took two photos using a different setting on my camera for each. Which one do you like best - 1 or 2?
Here's a close-up of the shamrocks--a better close-up than the one
in the other post.
This arrangement of potted plants are in the right-hand-corner
of the garage where it can be seen from the road
and especially coming up our driveway.
This is an old steel-toed boot of his dad's.
It was a 60th birthday present from his sister.
I thought I'd show some close-ups of it.
Close to it, in another planter, is this star and globe yard ornament.
You can see the wear and tear on it from the weather,
as I have had it a long time.
We have cherry tomatoes now,
but the other bigger tomatoes are still in progress.
This pic and the one below is of the huge planters that stand guard
on each side of the swing set.
Here is what they looked like when I planted them.
Here is the front door although is it on the side of the house.
We use the back door and have company come through the back one also.
I planted three flowering bushes in front
of some of the hostas.
I also hung two hummingbird feeders near-by.
This is a sun planter that my son got me years ago.
You can barely see the sun now.
I think that was also the year he got his sun tattoo on his upper back.
Tim McGraw had a Cd out featuring the sun
and Doug really liked the picture and the Cd.
Each morning, after I hang the bird feeders,
I water the flowers and the tomato and pepper plants.
It is a soothing routine by which to start the day,
and it also gets my body moving (it tends to be quite stiff
first thing in the morning).
These are just odds and ends from my life.
Hope you all have a wonderful week!
