Now, for my 12 of 12 ... mine are always pretty boring. And this month is no different - it's Saturday, but Scott is working and there are chores to do. So, another month of pictures from around the house. I promise to be more creative next month - really ...
When items go on clearance, Scott tends to buy things with his employee discount. Last night he brought home 10 place settings of Nate Berkus dinnerware. They're sitting in the front hall until we figure out what to do with them. (Yes, we could put them in the cabinets - but we're not sure yet what to do with the other two sets of dishes that are already in there ... )
Here's one of the settings - you can't tell in the picture, but the light-colored parts are a really pale blue. Cool, eh?
Outside to cut the grass. First, of course Kali has left a mess on the back porch to clean up. She likes to drag everything she can find up on the deck, and then destroy it. I don't even know where half the stuff comes from.
Lupine is starting to bloom ...
... and so is the Golden Chain tree.
I think this shot has been in every 12 of 12 I've done. Kinda cool to see the progression of the seasons, though, with all the plants filling in. Oh, and that desert of dirt at the bottom left will go away, once we get some paving stones - and some energy - so we can put in a small patio.
FINALLY planted the geraniums we got at least a week ago.
A cool picture of the sky.
The theme for May's Bonus Picture is "Dreamscapes". I'm using this picture for a few reasons:
- I thought the sky looked sort of ethereal ... dream-like.
- This plane is landing, but it will be taking off again. That sort of ebb-and-flow, always-a-new-beginning rhythm is comforting. I'm sure there's something you could read into that involving dreams.
- I frequently have dreams involving planes - sometimes practically this exact image. Unfortunately, they aren't good dreams, but we'll leave it at that.
(I almost used the dream sequence from "Fiddler On the Roof" for my bonus picture ... I decided on the "inspirational poster" route rather than showtunes ... )
Happy 12 of 12! And Happy Mother's Day if it applies to you. :)
