I used the left over paint from the deck painting earlier this year... chair resides in front of my container garden...on the old shed slab
I painted the 2 chairs and the bench...SO who knows if I decide to sit down I will have a place to do it...I can't leave my cushions out or the squirrels will destroy them. So I keep them stashed in the shed.
And they didn't even eat it, just stripped it off the plant GRRRR
A couple more blooms are forming, So I put the plant in a wire cage hope it doesn't get attacked again.
Some California Poppies did open...they only last a day or two but more buds are there..
And I love to grow pepper so I have several plants and they are doing good so far...I over winter peppers in the sunny utility room. They come back really good when once they go into the yard I also over winter the Bell Peppers.
I eat them raw, I cook them, I freeze them and I pickle them! They are easy to grow and easy to preserve. I also grow Banana and Bell Pepper.
Up in the trees are the new Eastern Bluebirds, looking gorgeous at this point..If you recall the nest box blew down and I had to reset it for them....that was before the eggs were laid.
Hard to get a shot of the Ruby Throated Hummers, this is a female, a young one. Thru the window of course...
I don't have to go far to see all kinds of wonderful things...just walk out the back door. And even at Night...
