I love this rustic old whiskey barrel planter in my backyard that just won't quit blooming!
The leaves are falling all around it, but this still looks like summer! I think these flowers like the unseasonably
warm hot summer-like weather we've had for the last few weeks.
I like discovering this white-lined sphinx moth enjoying another pot of flowers that is still blooming. They come out at dusk, and that's when I am usually out watering everything. Mike caught this photo with his fancy camera.
I like watching people do a job that I can't do and don't really know anything about!
The tree trimmers were at our house the other day. You can't see the lettering on the side of their truck, but they call themselves "Plant Health Specialists." I thought that was a very lofty title! But I'm definitely glad they care about our trees and keeping them healthy.
They make a lot of noise and a big mess before all is said and done!
A lot of thumps and bumps and clangs and crashes!
This is a tree we planted when our 37 year old son was born! It's pretty special to me.
They left us this cool slice off of one of the big branches. What should we do with it?
And in the sewing room this week, I'm enjoying making slow, but steady progress stitching my Happy Bird blocks together into a quilt top. This will be a fun quilt!
And before I go, I wanted to say thank you to everyone who left good wishes for my MIL! She is adjusting to her new living situation in the nursing home as well as we can expect, I think, and seems to have some good moments and some not so good ones. There are many sweet people there to support her, like the kind woman who does everyone's hair, and the nice maintenance man who helped us with her TV remote, and the sweet nurse who helped Mom try on some new clothes that my SIL brought her. I am truly thankful for this kind of support system to help my MIL and my husband and his sisters navigate all of these changes.
Hope you're having a great week! Join us over at LeeAnna's place for more "I Like Thursday" posts.
