A Quiet Weekend


It has been a quiet weekend for us , not having to go anywhere or have anything pressing to do other then enjoy our yard and putter .

                             Papa helped his dad reseal their driveway .

    This little guy was fluttering all over the garden and flowers having a hard time in the breeze and  with all the choices.

Papa finished refurbishing our chiminea  we got for free from our neighbours  a few weeks ago  , now we have to get a few patio stones to put it on  to have it just out from under the patio porch !

The weather has been lovely as the humidity has left us for now and it has been sunny with cool breezes just perfect . .

                                          My hopes and prayers for those who are in or were in  the  Hurricane storm  !

                                                                      Until next time my friends !

your yard is so pretty! I only looked briefly at the clematis, as I can kill that stuff with no effort , not sure my power is diluted over the internet so to be safe... lol
I really like your clothesline, I used to have one similar will have to find another

Sounds like a great weekend! Love the cloud pictures in your previous post as well. xx

Cindy said...

I so enjoyed your post today. Truly it was a peaceful journey for me to take about your yard after such a busy weekend I had. Glad yours was settling. The driveway looks like it can be a big job, always nice to have help.

My daughter purchased me a pot belly almost like yours and the outside is all rusted and well I was wondering what you did to restore your great find? Have a great week ahead.

I love your clematis...I hadn't thought of letting it climb a tree!

i almost bought a metal chiminea just like that one, but i was afraid our winds here would be too strong and cause a fire hazard. :)
