The kind of weekend we like , no have too do of anything just putter about .
It was mind you a very humid sticky steamy weekend with this nasty humidity we had and are still having , and even though we had welcomed rain and thunderstorms this morning now that that is over the sun is popping in and out and it is making really steamy out there , walk out the door and the humidity hits you like a ton of bricks BAM !!!
Papa and I were putter about with the idea of our water feature we got from the state sale last weekend , what to do with it first and how to make it work as really it is not a water feature actually is just a decorate pretend water feature but once papa got his hands on it it became a working water feature . His dad had rubber lining from their old pond and gave to Papa and so he went to work on it in his shop and he re built parts of the wood pump and added a real pump inside .
Testing it here . Works wonderful and sounds lovely to .
Then we started to through out all kinds of ideas with a few rocks in it a couple of water plants would go nicely and yeah it was fun to create in our heads as we looked at it and will hopefully find that perfect spot for it !
Then Papa saw this and came up with this , looks like it is flowing into a bucket .
It is actually a bottomless stand we got with another water feature that he also re did !
From this .
To this . I like this set up better .
I also puttered in the gardens weeding here and there and we took breaks indoors in the cool watched some Netflix and yeah it was a weekend of puttering and in and out due to the humid weather .
I think these flowers look like they are from the bottom of the sea , kind of a sea creature thing going on here , I love them .
Blazing star most commonly called !
And now my white Globe thistles have bloomed as well ! Very interesting looking blooms I must say ! each and every tiny flower is perfect !
We had torrential rains and wicked thunderstorms this morning , Miggs was hiding as she doesn't like big claps of thunder , but she eventually fell asleep so all was good . Spoke to Papa from texting at his work they lost power so he was chatting to me on and off from there lol !
I could hear the gardens singing with joy with all the rain .
And I got to go out and take rain drop photos after the storms . Love me some rain drops !
Everything looks so fresh and revived in the gardens after a good rain doesn't it ?!
In my last post I had mentioned about Miggs paw , well the medication is working and she is feeling and getting a bit better now we will have to figure out at her next appointment what to do , remove the outer toe or not and hope it isn't a cancerous tumor or spreads . I will keep you all posted as we find out what our next and best step is to do for her !
Until next time .
