Hydrangeas are one of my favorite plants. This one, like the other three across the front of my house, started from tiny, 1 gallon shrubs on sale at Home Depot. A little TLC and a little patience and they are now huge, thriving, and beautiful. In fact, Dani took cuttings from them last year to start the Hydrangeas that are doing so well in pots along the back of my house.
Copper is scraping and sanding the trim on the house in preparation for repainting it. Having a husband who takes care of hard, dusty, hot jobs like this, without complaining and on his day off, makes me happy.
I almost used this picture as my pretty picture. I love the way the extension cord for the belt sander unwound across the driveway. All those curlicues are kind of funny, but pretty at the same time.
Dry rot. Every year we have more. Two things we seem to grow really well here on our little 5 1/2 acres of land – weeds and the fungus that eats the wood on our house. Still, even with the weeds and the dry rot, we thank God often and much for blessing us with this place fourteen years ago. It’s home and we love it.
