Goldie Locks boating!
Gotta go when we can, although when not in too much sickness or mostly in healthy, sort of...preferably when the sun is shining, but not too hot... in daylight, but close to sunset, but never dark...in other words just right!
My mat of wood that we had painted via my design is still holding up well! Tap on the below picture to read the mat larger.
Some projects are to renew and refresh, my shabby chic flower box was just that sort of thingy.
Hubby as usual did the heavy lifting, and mainstay painting the white base, and emptied the wooden box of overly rooted soil and removed the sad dying plants, and delivered the washed down gift from my cousins, yes the very same ones, the retired teachers that had given it to us as a housewarming present nearly twenty years ago! So Hubby had set it aside when he painted the porch and replaced the other objects but left this one for me to decide how to paint it, most of the paint was shadow remnants so I basically had a clean slate, and that enabled me to decide to make it become a glaring bright off color from the rest of our color coordinated stoop! (By adding in the RED!) Those few succulents made it, they are thornless and have been with us for over twenty years,another gift from a neighbor from Punta Gorda, they grow lovely small purple velvet flowers on them; but still no one has been able to tell us its name, even the county extension. They are extremely easy to propagate too, thus the reason why we continue to have them, and they need very little care, an additional bonus!
