Orange and Yellow

Photos from the "new" old house:

The aloe is in bloom!

This is a double Adirondack chair that my grandpa actually made from a pattern found in Sunset magazine.


This rose is actually as bright as it appears in the picture. This is from yet another rose bush planted my grandma many, many YEARS ago.



Beauty is where you find it. Hidden amongst the weeds, the nasturtiums are thriving and taking over....

PEACE

Lovely pictures!

In my retirement years, I plan on building Adirondack chairs, too!

Hope you're having a great weekend.

Those are beautiful photos. They look like they beyond in a book or something.

Tom,
Target has Adirondack chairs on sale this week, wll at least here in San Diego. ;) You don't have to retire just to assemble one! Teehee...

Donna,
Michael gave me a very cool camera for Christmas last year and I'm still playing around with it. I haven't even used half the features on it. Thanks for the nice compliment!

Aloe blooms?? I had no idea. The adirondack chair is really cool. Your grandpa was a talented man.

Angie,
I guess that's what happens when aloe runs a muck! You get blooms! My grandpa enjoyed building all kinds of stuff. He always had some sort of project in the works. I believe Sunset Magazine still sells that chair pattern!
