Tuesday's child is full of grace...

and here's Tuesday's child...
one of the cone flowers in bloom...
a new addition to our world last year...

give it a few years and it will enlarge and fill this area...

got some fun things...
free things...
tons of pots and planters...

all from one person who needed to purge...

we will scrub them up and paint...
already thinking into next year and where they will go and what will go in them...
the largest ones will be the beginning of my raised garden...
each year it gets harder for me to get down and plant and weed...
but oh, what I can do from a seated position...

I got a bunch of clay pots,,,

some with peeling paint...
which will only get washed up...

found these two pieces of milk glass in the lot, too...
the short one is hobnail and the taller one is a variation of hobnail...

we got 1.5 inches of rain last night...
woke up with it just pouring one time...

this is yesterday morning off of the deck...

as the sun was coming up...

and here is what I am NOT keeping...
posted them on facebook for free...
anyone can come and get what they want...
so far, no takers...
???
if no one claims them, we will sort again...
the nice ones will get washed and taken to The Spare Room...
a place up town where you can donate items or go in and shop...
and everything is free to whoever wants it...
its run in coalition with the food pantry...
the rest, we will pitch...

if it ever quits raining, we will get the driveway and walk sprayed for weeds...
homemade spray of course...
no roundup or other poisons...
but we need several dry days in a row for it to work...
and so far, that hasn't happened...

with all the rain and humidity...
everything is lush and green...
and everyone is walking around with funky hair...
its either bushing out or plastered to your head...
;0)
baseball caps are a favorite new accessory...

well, this isn't getting the towels washed or another book read...
so off you go to play in your own little world...
ever mindful that prayers are answered and faith is renewed by looking up...
have a fun day!

Love the milk glass :) You should share the recipe for the homemade weed killer. I too hate to use any pesticides...

Wish I were close enough I'd grab a few of those pots to put plants in, next year.
