A GREAT Weekend...

Monday, September 19, 2011

I hope you all had a nice weekend.
It was great here.
A little chilly, 
but still very nice.

We spent some time outside doing some chores around the house.
I thought I'd share some pictures with you of our home.

In front of the potting shed the Colonel made for me a few years ago.
The kids made the sign for it and gave it to me for Christmas... 

One side of our back porch with my pretty flowers...

A few of the flowers didn't enjoy the cold temperatures
and I had to give them a "burial."  
This one still looks happy...

The other side of our porch.
The brown chest use to be Olivia's bedroom dresser.
The Colonel refinished it YEARS ago and it was a pretty blue with 
off white trim while it was in her room. 
When we purchased her new furniture a few years ago I asked
him to please re-do it again so we could put it on the back porch.
He painted it brown, removed the drawers and added shelves. 
Looks nice...
The back of the house...


Hubby burning trash.
Yes, it's legal here to do this!

This is what we found while wedding the front garden...

We think they're some form of mushrooms...
Here's a close-up.
Does anyone have any clue what they are?

We found the remains of a bird's nest in a tree...

Very nice...

Leaving it alone.
Maybe they'll come back next year...

Our view...



Our house...

My favorite place to be...
I hope you enjoyed the pictures of our weekend.

Leave me a comment and let me know what you did 
this weekend! 

Enjoy your day!

  15. Lois it is nice to have you back and your view is beautiful.
    I have seen them in our yard this year and I think that they are some kind of mushroom.
    I had to do a burial of some flowers also. We had a frost 2 nights in a row and it did a number on my flowers.
    I took down all of my gnomes and put them in storage for the winter.
    Hugs

  16. Wasn't it a glorious weekend!
    Lois your home is just beautiful and what a view!!!!! I am in love with your covered back porch. I've been asking Ray to do a cover over our patio for years. Wow your flowers are still doing so well. Mine gave up and are laying flat on the ground!I have one of those mushrooms too. It's a tiny one and it's on the ground under a boxwood bush so I thought it might be a birds egg but when I touched it it felt just like a mushroom. I've never seen one like it. Hugs
