There's a shelf and a bakers rack on either side of the
enormous monster that takes up precious design space grill.
The deck is two stairs up from the patio, and that's where we've been eating all our meals since starting in on the kitchen.
Around the rest of the yard, there are a couple new things blooming.
I've stopped pinching the flowers off of the coleus.
My mom gave me starts of this little sunflower years ago.
It reseeds like crazy and is a wee bit naughty, but it's pretty, so I leave a few.
The morning glory is startin' to kick it into high gear.
Plotting to deposit seeds all over the yard, no doubt.
The rest of the zinnias I started are finally gettin' goin'.
My sister's coworker gave her some rooted Shiso stems and she shared them with me.
I stuck them in a pot just a few weeks ago and they have taken off like wild fire.
My mom gave me a new dahlia bulb for Mother's Day.
I stuck it in the ground, it came up, and the kids broke it off with a ball.
It surprised me and came up again.
It has had buds for what seems like over a month.
They just keep getting bigger and bigger.
I can not WAIT for it to finally bloom.
This last one makes me a little sad.
Is it late enough for the mums already?!
Summer is waning.
It's Friday, kids.
Know what that means?
The kitchen work weekend is almost here.
We're ready for insulation and drywall.
I'm grinning big as I type that.
