from a Denver Farmer's Market. Two bunches - a pink one and a white one that Sarah brought for us to enjoy last weekend. There was a pink one just as large as this white one on the other side. Stretch your hand WAY out. Stretch, even more. This beauty was SUPER SIZED! I'm saving the petals for my summer potpourri jar because I want to discover whether or not the heavenly scent will remain as they dry.
W is for water and "we".
While I had help from Alex's muscles "we" measured and dug the hole for the water pan.
"We" also lifted my Christmas fountain into place. Then Alex attached the hose to the pump and I filled the pan with water and plugged it in.
I'll need to get matching rocks from my brother the next time I see him so I can fill in around the black tray. These came from his old house's foundation on the farm. He saved the rocks when he tore down the house and used them when he put this piece together for my gift. Best recycling I've ever seen!
When summer begins I read...a lot. Guess that's why I did enjoy being the Reading Intervention teacher!
However, there is no way I could keep all the books I read. That's why I belong to Paper Back Swap. I post my books so they are available for other members to request. If they have a credit I will mail the book and earn a credit to "spend" on another book. Some of these were books I purchased after school was out and others are going back into the system to a new home, paying only the Media Mail postage when I mail a book. When I receive a book, a credit is used and the book is "free". Interested? Go to www.paperbackswap.com.
I went out to turn off the water and discovered it wasn't windy.
I just had to take a picture even though it was after sunset.
This tree has really grown since last year and is covered with these sweet smelling flowers. Some people don't like them and have issues, but I haven't had it long enough to have any problems. So for me, it is a keeper.
Have a blessed week and I hope there won't be any more terrible storms for anyone.
After more years than I care to admit, I'm now a retired teacher. I'm a Colorado native, love to play the hand bells at church, will always choose reading over cleaning, and I dearly love my family. In the spring and summer I love to get out in my flower gardens and play in the dirt!
