In my Dining Room, I have this vintage buffet and clock which were my Mom's. I added this picture above the buffet. It is a scene painted on the reverse side of curved glass. It is labeled "The Danube". There are a couple of places where the paint has chipped away but I am afraid to do anything to it because it is so old. It was my folk's also.
The flowers are still pretty for the most part - a lot of them have faded out due to the intense heat. Even tho I am watering twice a day and we even had a good rain this morning, the heat factor is 105-115 degrees, so it is just burning up everything. Here's some of what's left.
These are all along my back fence.
Lots of daisies!
The little ones are so amused by the weirdest things!
The garage still has a lot of work to do but with the intense heat, it'll just have to wait a while.
The shelves I got are working out great tho.
I am loving my new home. Am getting ready to have several trees taken out and the rest all trimmed. I have been notified by the electric company that they are starting next week putting all of the electrical lines underground. Do you know the first thing I thought of? Oh good, now I can take pictures out the back door without all of the highlines!! Now, that's a blogger thinking!! LOL But, it will be nice. They won't be digging up the yard at all. They have been out and marked the curbs and will drill thru the ground and then run all the cables thru a pipe of some kind???
Sure do miss being in Alaska a few years ago zip lining in the cool weather.
