Do you sense a theme here???

If you've left the well beaten path, and wandered to my door, my "Welcome Friends" angel wil greet you *VBS* She's a "spring thing", complete with sunbonnet and tea service. She'll soon be replaced by a patriotic angel, to welcome the upcoming holiday.
 The newly planted flower boxes, 7 in all, are doing well and beginning to fill their comtainers to overflowing with flowery loviness.
 My well traveled hanging basket is bright and perky, having missed ALL the hail storms of late.
 And there's that shiny new desk chair, it joins company with the turquoise ones of last summer. A South Beach life style for sure, right here in Western Wisconsin *VBS* Now, have all you clever gals figured out the theme for the summer??? Bet you have *VBS*
I'm wondering if some of you with Neo Counter from NeoWorx have added the new Neo tool bar?? It indicates who's at the blog as they come and go. Since installing it, and it's fascinating to watch(I saw 19 of you at the same time yesterday), I see I have WI readers from both La Crosse and from Black River Falls..... Iwanted to give you both a BIG "Hi" from Finn, up here in the valley, near Menomonie *VBS*

Do you get visited by a lot of hummingbirds with all that red? Tell Ebby to watch out! Love the look of the blog. Did you do some housecleaning on it?

Pat said...

Hi Finn! glad to see you and your beautiful plants are safe from the WI storms. They have been incredible over the weekend here in south central Wisconsin...glad to have only the clouds and no rain yet today.

Red seems to be 'your color' of late and a very happy color at that :) Enjoy your happy porch...

Goodness I have become outdated! I spend too much time on here now, but if I start fiddling about with updates, I may well never get out!

Your porch looks ready for some good summer visiting (one the rain goes away)...flowers are so pretty.

Have a fun week.

i never knew petunias smelled. when i walk into the quanset hut style greenhouses here, it is the light fragrane i smell. i am going to have to break down and get some. i suppose they die with the frost but there smell so good and are so colorful and cheery

Screen Door said...

Awesome chair--- suits you perfectly.... Great color with the petunias... enjoy your summer. We haven't had the downpours that Wisconsin has... Hope you are staying dry...
