More of the tour (missed yesterday)

Greetings: so glad you stopped by for a visit. I knew you would find your way up the decking boardwalk. Perhaps soon, when you visit, we will have the stone walkway in and direct you to the original front entrance. I love the tropical giant leaf plant on the same little drop leaf table that houses my Christmas window pane display. Can you believe that Christmas is almost five months away. I must start on some of my holiday decorations now, but that's hard to do, with all the heat in July.

Another view of the entrance we use. I love the two toned coleus plants as you step up onto the porch.

Lavender is one of my favorites but I find it is somewhat difficult to maintain. I tried planting it in this large container. So far, so good - it takes watering every day, but I can see small lavender blooms emerging. I'll keep my fingers crossed.


  1. nice yard, loved your swan...Christmas decorations in this heat ;D have a great night!

  2. Gotta say this so people won't think my sister is nuts.....Bettie does not start decorating now..she does her planning/sorting/purchasing now...but not the actual placement of stuff...I'm a complete Christmas NUT and I don't even Decorate in July :)
