Just about done painting...

I just need to do a bit of touch-up.

What a cute little house!
Remember this?
All better now.

More flowers blooming...

I love this funky bloom on my Dutchman's Pipe.

Another Amaryllis bloom.

Guara 'Daupin'

The gardenias are finally blooming!  The fragrance is magical.


Morning Glory.

Almost done painting, and more flowers blooming

I finished painting the siding this weekend.  I LOVE the yellow.  Just the trim to do now.  The yard still looks trashy, but I'll have time to work on it soon.

More gorgeous blooms:

Dutchman's Pipe

Morning Glory

Unknown plants

I knew what these were when I bought them, but I forgot by the time I got home...

Almost done priming!

I only have a small section in the back to do.  I'm getting the trim around my windows replaced this weekend.  Then I can start painting!

I like the yellow for the house itself.  I think I'll paint the door green.

My wisteria is blooming!
Raised bed, before...
...and after.
Guara 'Dauphin'

Gorgeous, HUGE Amaryllis

Orange cestrum


California poppy

Hanging plants are done.

House repairs

In addition to gardening, I'm also working on my house.  I FINALLY got some repairs done on the outside.
The trim and some of the siding were in seriously bad shape.

In the process of priming.  MUCH better.

Looks like the primer dripped.  Oh well, I'll paint over that, too.

I'm about half way done priming.

Next step - to clean the mold (or whatever that is) off
the eaves before painting them.
