Bonus boredom post

It’s Sunday, and I should be out enjoying the sunshine, but it’s too bright out there. I should be cleaning, since I’m not outside, but I don’t feel like it. So here’s a few more pictures since I’m bored. Ready…

Garden Project

A few years ago, I was inspired to create a small raised garden outside my patio door. I raided Mom’s greenhouse, and ended up with Tiger Lilies, Day Lilies, a lavender plant, and some Vinca Minor (aka Periwinkle) to use…

A Walk in the Park

The sun was out and it was almost warm today, so I left work a little early, got my camera, and went for a walk at Seahurst Park. Somebody built a pile of sticks on the beach: A Seagull hung…
