Cannas growing outside the glass off the
backporch. This make a nice sunny place even up into the winter. A bit of
warm sun here is nice for a brief nap, relief for Grammas who have aching
tired feet and joints. Seems our backdoor gets used as much as the front
so this is a nice entry way.
Barberry, Canna and Zennia bed will be more
showy late in the season just before frost.
The new fence across the front is not finished but working. This heavy
rubber like love seat wintered over last year, very well. These wind
chimes are not the clanking ones but rather have a clear bell tone and how
did they manage to make them sound like a melody being played. It is a
nice place for me to enjoy reading when and if I ever get a moment. I like
to read to the children here, too. They are willing to stay because of the
cars going by which gives them a moment of distraction
Crepe Myrtle is blooming profusely this year. The wild grape arbor behind
creates another outdoor room. The tall Poplars behind the house are
wonderful for shading the back porch. We have a Mimosa that grew close to
the grape vine arbor. I left it and may be sorry later but for the moment
it is beginning to give some shade and is even blooming some this year.
