Lazy Days of Summer

I guess it's been awhile since I last posted. I have just been busy wrapping up the final days of school. I spend so much time running my 15 yr. old daughter around. 5:30 am, yes am, cheerleading practice. wow, that's early. Six more days of school for me. Only 3 more for her. a new policy was adopted a few yrs ago. If you maintain an A-B and don't miss more than 3 days of school all yr. you can skip finals, so she should get out a few days early!! Good girl!
Last weekend I got an idea to place a few of my screen doors on my back porch. I just stood them up on the walls of the porch and secured them with screws.
I like the looks of them. Just plain old screens!

This is my favorite one. I love the old gingerbread decor of it.

I love my hanging bed my husband made for me last yr. for my birthday! The sun shines onto the porch in the evening.
I also thought of taking down the picket window boxes I have had up there since we built the potting shed. I had some chicken feeders and thought those would be perfect there.

this one is my favorite! I love the wire onto. I just screwed them to the wall. Ok, my husband did. I told him one evening after work. I have a little project. He said does this involve me? Well yes, of course!

We planted yews here yrs. ago when we added on the car lift onto the husband garage. That is what is in the tall part of the building. The yew shrubs had just gotten overgrown and looked bad. I bought some maiden grass and until it gets bigger I filled in with some junk I had behind the garage. I love the movement of the maiden grass.

Just a hanging geranium with my bells on my newly covered porch.

I've posted a picture of my water feature in the past. I just love it. You can hear it in the kitchen window.

This metal bench sits in the oval, our circle driveway.

And this bicycle and planter sits in the oval too, under the cedar tree.

And just a picture of a wooden church chair with another geranium in a bucket. Well I think we are going to get the pool opened up this weekend. It's suppose to be warm. We have had alot of rain this week. Have a great weekend everyone!
