Greetings! Did you have a good weekend? We had a rainy one! I mean downpours, thunder and all. We found out that having a large metal roof on the gazebo on the deck has brought a new sound to heavy rain and hail.. you can hear it from inside the house and if you open the back door it is quite thunderous. But, it's okay, just something new. I went out just now to take some photos of the Mock Orange bush on the right of the garden shed. It was thankfully not ruined by the heavy rains, although the pink rosebud azalea blossoms were done in.
I tried to sniff the orange blossom aroma but I do believe the rains washed it all away as I couldn't smell anything. Maybe after they dry out it will come back?
After days of grey skies and heavy downpours I am happy to report that the blue in the sky is returning. Thank goodness!
Most of the roses are beat up from the rain but this one bud still is pretty. My Double Delight rose.
I could not be more pleased with the bouquet of Peonies on the dining room table. The grower picked them at just the right time, tight buds, and each flower has opened up into a full blowsy blooms, just gorgeous!
The man who's finishing off the attic had to get a friend to help him hold up the bead board panels while he nailed them up on the attic sloped ceiling.
It's going to be so much nicer up there after this project is finished! A short wall with doors will be along both sides for storage.
I'm having him put plywood flooring over the insulation to extend the flooring, I have no idea why they didn't do it when they built the attic.
And this is the new window! And the view of the barn. I'm so happy to have a window up there! You can see the circular driveway better from this vantage point.
It's rather fun to have a new window and a new view from a 100+ year old house.
I did go swimming on Friday and will be going today. I am meeting Gracie for lunch, I missed seeing her since she is not swimming due to having to dedicate her time to getting her house ready to sell, but I thought... she has to eat, right? What are you up to today? ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
