Thank goodness we live on a corner lot or I’d miss so much, including amazing sunsets! It was truly lovely.
A few years ago Mike and I took his sister to Vizcaya. There are some photos from that trip here.
This time it’s my sister visiting, so we went back! My camera has been dropped too many times, so the pictures are somewhat lacking, sorry.
Lovely inside and out, yesterday was her birthday!!
See what I mean about my camera? Half the time it wouldn’t focus. Pictures were either blown out or way too dark. Weird.
I really, really need a haircut.
Are we expecting vampires?
My husband found this transformative picnic table/bench on *Amazon and had to have it.
It feels more like a children’s picnic table to me, but he was so in love with it… here it is.
The thing is cute but I was hoping for something more… comfortable. 😉

I bought this little thing to hopefully bring more birds and to give bees a landing spot so they could drink without drowning. That’s really a thing.
What I didn’t count on while cycling through the different nozzles? The sound is delightful! And very soothing. All for $17. The little things really are the best.
Oh, the patio has been pressure cleaned and looks amazing. Hibiscus has arrived and is waiting to be planted.
Work continues apace!
Not what I’m supposed to be buying (pollinators), but the bamboo will go on the patio for ambiance. Right now the back patio is an urban desert containing a grill and a table and chair set that was old when we bought the place 20 years ago.
Pollinators when I can get to Home Depot with the man.
I thought the Everglades were on fire last night, the sunset was so brilliant!
…and a full view.
It was amazing. These might be the best of the pictures but who knows, I took so many.
And all I had to do was walk out my back door. Wow.
The wee hairs on the bees (still no sign of the yard guys) are so precious.
Yes, I’m weird. Too old to care.
The yard guys are obviously running behind, but I delight in the weeds. Never one to worry over or demand grassy perfection, I’m happy as long as it’s green.
When it grows out this long I plop down amongst the blue, violet and yellow. The bees work purposefully around me, from flower to flower, unconcerned by my presence or that of the dogs. Serenity!
That was February, this is June.
There are some weeds left, but I pulled so many by hand. No chemicals around the dogs!
