Welcome to Southwest Florida, a semi-tropical place that sings mellow yellow, true blue and green meadows, colorful island like pallets!

 
Only forty feet of edging on our tiny, just enough for us cottage and ten bags of Eucalyptus mulch and the front garden is done!
The weed and feed is put down before just before our next predicted rain storm.
No fertilizer in rainy season is allowed though, which starts June first through November 30th, every year, that is also our hurricane season!  
 
 
 
 
 




Our name sign claiming this is our cottage has been hung once again, it is the one Number One Son made in high school wood shop, nearly thirty years ago, and in the corner is our teak bench, leftover from that teak dive platform I had mentioned, it sits on two painted white cinder blocks and is topped with that shabby chic wooden flowered planter that my cousins gave to us. Hubby spar varnished all three! The oyster shell wreath above them had been redone a few weeks ago from the original. The grape branched wreath was purchased from Jo-Anne's as well as the blue teal ribbon, but the oyster shells are from our canal; they were bleached clean and holes were put in them carefully by Hubby along with the others from the eighteen year old wreath's leftover ones. This one is fuller with many more shells and they are fastened on with fishing line that in this case works better than hot glue.
You can just see those true blue painted planters with the mother-in-law-tongue plants inside of them, that hold up well with very little water all year round.
We are in-between holidays right now, but my St. Paddy's Day wooden wall hanging in the shape of a clover will be put up next Wednesday for and until the holiday and then after that I have a Spring one for Easter and Passover too as well as many others! All made by Hubby and me.

That's it for tonight, allow me to be the first to wish all of you a very happy good night and ask you all to kindly count all your blessings and share all those overages with you know whom and we will too!

And next time please be here or be square, ya hear!
