the Summer garden is a ghost. Now I am moving on to the Fall/Winter scene around here. Not being a green thumb is challenging to say the least. I am hoping the Winter greens I purchased will last until Spring. They sure look pretty for now. Let me start with the Summer tour...just a few pics for ya.
WOW...I just love this picture!
Moving on to Fall now...
Painted the planters a nice color of Olive green, by Krylon
I am loving Kale! It is suppose to be very hardy throughout the winter time.
Taking the Fall scene compared to the Summer scene is a major difference.
Leaves changing ever so slightly.
Now onto the front. Today Mike and I spent the entire day, trimming, planting and sprucing up. I also put out just a few more Halloween spooky stuff. As I told you Alex is having a party, and I want it to be fun around here. The theme this week over at Funky junk intereiors....is shutters. Let me tell you quickly our house shutter story.
When we purchased this house the original shutters where brown plastic. Although they looked fine, it really was not until one day I saw these shutters on a new home some where else. We were driving through this neighbrohood with million dollar homes, you do know we can dream. I noticed on one home these awesome looking shutters. I said to my husband, I may not be able to afford the home, however I bet we can afford to get those shutters made.
SUre enough, he agreed. Ironically, we found the same fellow who did the million dollar home. We love the character it brought to our home. I have had people ask me if our home is NEW or OLD, they can't tell. Our home is only 5 years old. However, we have tried to create an Old world feel.
I really want window boxes, but my husband said "why so we can display dead plants"..yes he really is a nice guy, however, he knows me all too well.
I am thinking the birds are not going to be happy for the next week or so.
And that is about all the work this gal can tackle for the day! Enjoy!
