Building Project


We had a huge building project going on at home this summer.  My Babe built me a porch this summer ; )  This is what my house looked like at the beginning of our building project in May!  It’s nearly finished now.  There’s a bit of trim left to put up and I have a few more railings to paint.  It’s the biggest building project my husband has tackled yet and he did a beautiful job!!


Of course, I’ve already started decorating with pots of flowers and patio furniture I’ve been collecting.  My mom found a string of bistro lights at a yard sale – they give it the perfect welcoming touch in the evenings.


We all love the new porch.  It’s a great place to sit and relax and visit together!  It’s where I watch my bird feeders while I drink my morning tea.  I have a nice view of the yard, my flowers, the butterflies that visit them, and my bathtub water garden.  …I just had to sneak in a couple more pictures of my water lily ; )



(Next summer’s building projects include a set of new front steps!)


Water Lily Blooming!


I was so happy to see my water lily’s first flower this week!!!  I successfully grew a waterlily in my bathtub water garden – yay!!

Now, what do I do about the aphid infestation that just took over on the leaves!?
