These are the lilacs that I just brought in from the front yard this morning. They are such a gorgeous colour. My lilacs in the past have been white or lilac colour. These look stunning in the yard. I took the picture just as the sun was shining through the living room window. As I sit on the front porch I can look right at the lilac bush. It has been well maintained. I have one tree in the front yard and one in the backyard beside the garden shed.
Last week I found some Lily-of-the-valley beside the garden shed and picked 3 stems to put beside my bed. Just 3 little stems and the whole room smells amazing for days. Lily-of-the-valley loves the soil under the pine trees.
I finally got the numbers up on the house post that we installed. We live in a remote area and do a lot of online shopping so we really want UPS, Purolator and everyone else to be able to find us. While is was working on painting the post I painted the numbers on the porch railing. They look like new but nobody will see them. Nobody looks for numbers to be on the cottages around here because most of the properties have the cottages set back from the road.
These are the little painting jobs that I have been working on. I have a pretty ornate mirror frame that my mother gave to me. A couple of weeks ago I picked up a free piece of mirror that someone left at the bottom of their driveway. It is a very large piece of mirror. I can take to the hardware and have them cut it the right size for my frame and have mirror left over. The shelf with the brackets attached is going on the kitchen wall along with my mirror. The other smaller shelf is going above the stove to hold my olive oil, salt and things like that.
This past weekend was cold and rainy. It is such a nice day and this week promises sunshine and warmer temperatures. I hope you are enjoying your day.
