Would you believe I finally got around to cleaning the front porch and putting out a little fall decor...
Something I've been talking about doing for weeks now but just couldn't get started.
so, beginning with the bottom of the old cupboard...
I pulled out all the canning jars and washed them. An old plastic tablecloth cut in half was perfect for lining the shelves.
It was Poppy with the brilliant idea this time. :) He said, "Why don't you just put the jars in your pink wheelbarrow and clean them with the hose. It's not like you're washing them to can in right away". So I did.
Oh my gosh, having this rocking chair on the front porch is wonderful! I just might sit more!
Okay, Poppy has his own chair and so does Eli. This needs to be labeled "Henny's"!
Had to move all the rusty items from off the table, you know, Poppy's collection of old metal pieces dug from the dirt road. These are now in the old wash pan under the table. That wooden bird cage looks a little off balance...need to change that.
By the way...wandered out on the porch and caught Poppy rocking and dozing, in my chair!
I've had this big poster size wooden frame, made from old barn wood, for years. In fact, had listed it for sale on Craigslist.
Then the idea of framing a sunflower print for the porch popped into my head...and I love it, except for the glare...
Walking Eli and Weetie early this morning, we rescued these wild flowers. I love them growing along side the dirt road, but there were so many, some had spilled over into the dry dusty road. We need rain!
Guess that's about it. Need to get busy. Got a list of things to do before Poppy gets home at 1:00. The fish truck is coming to Spring Hope this afternoon and we have ordered 50 baby catfish for the pond.
Hope to be back soon.
Tried once more to get a picture of the sunflower and the bee, without the glare...
