I took a few shots of the kids yesterday morning.
I did not tell them or let on, but I was trying to give them a chance to practice the image that they might want to use for picture day. This was first pose...
She critiqued the images and them came up with this pose as the favored look.
She is so grown up!
She borrowed some pearls to match her top.
She wanted to look feminine like her friend.
It is wonderful to see her enjoy her beauty.
Dash got in on the act and I was please to see his interest.
He tried this pose and I said if you open your smile you might be able to see your teeth.
The green beens are really loving the compost tea they get. These are more than twice the size of the other ones.
Arguable the prettiest most delicate flower I have here.
If you even barely touch them they fall (as does the fruit they become)
This is the last of the tomatoes outdoors, but I have a few yet to re-plant at the kitchen sink. I thought I would give it some time to have the straw bail rot a little bit more.
Maybe you'd like me to scratch and pick.
The hens are going well and will lay pretty soon I hope. They are so cool to have.
I think that they make good pets.
pearly is in the back ground she is the dark gray one (I love Tahitian pearls)
The kids have been exercising the use of hammer and nails. They built these signs and then placed them on each corner of the lot.
See the freezer box in the back ground? The kids are loving it! I placed a compost bin over the place the pomegranate tree will someday be planted. There are a couple of tomatoes still over here on the bails but this spot gets too hot I think, and I made an error in judgment by placing clay mud on the bails. It did not allow the water to get in well enough. I thought that it might hold it in. It was also sorta fun to rub the mud all over the bail. It needs to have just potting soil on top of the bails. Good lesson. I will replant these also.
Untill I find the box with my clothes pin bag...I have recycled this old laundry jug to hold them. Leaving them in the sun is not the best way to treat wood here in the desert.
This is the bottom of the freezer box. We are going to make a garden gate out of it with the screen that the folks shared with us.
The garden at the front door is thriving. I spend a lot of time here when I come back from walking the kids to the bus in the morning. Notice the hanging pots...They came from the dollar store as did the ferns in them.
See my pretty little rose that my dear friend gave me.
The flowers are so happy. I have wonderful orange flowers for fall!
The little plant was in a six pack last spring look at him now! Over 20 flowers await in bud.
