I can not believe it is July already!
Our weather has been unusually cool for summer time. Except for a few humid days …I wouldn’t even know it was Summer.
I spent a little bit of time on the porch the other day—I put out some flags I painted last year—and never posted about them. I made them from some shutters I had in my resource pile…
I made a couple of U.S. versions of the flag and of course I had to make one for the Lone Star State too!
You can see from all the rain we’ve had that everything is just growing so fast! My Boston Ferns are doing really well too. I set them out in the afternoon to catch any rain water they can—the little green pot on the right has purple Wandering Jew in it; and it is not growing much, it still houses a little Wren’s Nest. She is working on her second family in there, I think.
The Crepe Myrtles out on the side porch—they are still blooming, though not as much. You can see that there has been some mowing going on today. I promise—if I sit still enough on the swing, I can see the grass growing.
If this rain ever lets up—I have the paint to finish off the eaves over the porch and the 2 sides of the house, North and South sides. Just when I think I’ll be able to paint—we get a week of rain. Believe me, I’m not complaining—we need all this rain. But—eventually, I am going to be at a point of NEEDING paint on the house too.
Do you have big plans for Independence Day? Picnic? Swimming? Watermelon and cookouts?
Yes! to all?!
Til next time, Be Blessed!
The LORD is my strength and my shield; My heart trusts in Him, and I am helped; Therefore my heart exults, And with my song I shall thank Him. ~Psalm 28:7
