Today is Show and Tell Friday! Kelli is the host for this fun weekly event and be sure to visit her at There is No Place Like Home to see all the participants.
Good morning everyone! I have been long absent and I do apologize for abandoning my blog. Things have been pretty hectic with my dad. He had moved to a new house, got sicker, then nursing home...we closed the house. He fell this past weekend and has had a major setback. I have to admit, my heart just hasn't been in to too much these past months.
However, life goes on and I'm seeing some dayight. Good things happen too! OnlySon and SweetPea have bought a new home in southern Louisiana. OnlySon has moved into it and we helped him move last weekend. Wedding is set for August in Florida and we are all excited.
So...that's been my world. Now...onto fun things! We have been working in the yard and it's great therapy. Mr. Dumpling whines but I know he secretly enjoys it. I always have a project in my mind and he usually follows through.
I'm going to post a lot of pics and I hope you enjoy them!
We started a new project in April by adding a courtyard to the side of the house with the fountain. Here's some before and construction pics.
And here's our after pictures. We added large pots with flowers and trees. This is a Japanese maple.
I found some large fleur de lis pots and Mr. Dumpling bought them for me for Mother's Day. We added some varigated bougainvillea which should bloom white.
We added an arbor between the windows and planted Angel Jasmine on each side which will grow over the arbor. In the corner are sasanqua and some knock-out roses. You can see the Natchez crepe myrtles are blooming.
Boudreaux is still supervising everything and is sniffing the straw flowers. He has to check out everything that is new.
