We have a lovely minneola citrus tree. The fruit is just now starting to ripen. I have planted impatiens in front and to the side of the boy and girl statues.
We brought our two espallier apple trees from the other house at the wrong time of the year to transplant but they made it thank goodness. Different color petunas are planted all across the back.
Another picture of our fountain..to the left of the fountain on the back wall I have started training red bougainvillea in an espallier shape

Thought you would like to see our backyard and patio..we have a lot of work to do to get it the way we want it.. it just takes time. Jack has planted a very small vegetable garden..tomatoes, onions and burp less cucumbers. I have edged the front with nasturtiums. Not only are they pretty but are great in salads as well as cut flowers
As you come in the gate to the right is our front door. Across from it is our girl we brought with us from the other house. I planted the two large urns with decorative Kale. The large spikes in the back ground are perennials, in the spring they produce white flowers.
another shot of the urn
Picture of the patio with figures brought from the other house..impatience planted along the front and the side of the brick patio
The fountain was given to us by our dear friends Bob and Claude Merritt. We have a spotlight we turn on at night that illuminates the ferns and flowers as well as the fountain, When I enter my bedroom that is the first thing I see through the window.Sigh!!!

This large terrarium is in my office I had the glass piece in the other house full of wine bottle corks.
You need to keep your terrarium out of direct sunlight.This large cylinder jar is on the coffee table in the living room
This little cutie is in my bathroom I have the nest with eggs in it and also some small shells to add interest...that is what is so great about this project you can add figures, bridges,birds, even butterflys.

Went to the doctor yesterday for my annual check up. The first thing they make you do is get on the scales to see how much weight you have gained (won't even let you take off your shoes) guess what... I had gained two pounds...bummer. I have a husband that dearly loves to cook, yes it is really nice to have your own live in chef, but he does get upset if you don't eat all he has fixed, including desert. I do exercise everyday I also need to do the other exercise the one pushing away from the table. Let me know if you have any suggestions for me I really need some. Have a wonderful weekend. Blessings, Vonda

LAMP I PAID $7.00 AT GOODWILL.IT WAS A HIGH GLOSS BRIGHT BLUE.I SPRAYED IT WITH XIM A FLASH BOND THAT WOULD LET PAINT STAY ON THE SURFACE WITHOUT PEELING OFF. CUT OUT TOILE PRINTS AND BLACK AND WHITE TRIM AND DECOUPAGE THEM TO THE SIDES. SILVER LEAF PAINT WAS ADDED TO THE TOP AND BOTTOM OF THE LAMP. FOUR COATS OF SPRY VARNISH WAS ADDED FOR THE FINISH
