Those shed doors that were under construction on the driveway in the last post are now in place. We used that same opaque stain that is on the screened porch. These suckers are heavy! It took three guys to lift and put them in place and those hinges were made to hold lots of weight. Do you love that green Gooseneck Barn Light? We got ours at Northern Tools, but I found one on Amazon here.
Here is the path created out of the stones the neighbor had taken up.
A shot of the kitchen with those drawer pulls finally in place. There are still some final touches needed on the cabinets.
Coincidentally, this article was in the October issue of Southern Living. Where I am from in north Florida, we call these pretty things “Hurricane Lilies” because they bloom in hurricane season.
My sweet sister-in-law, Carol Gornto, remembers how much both my parents loved the hurricane lilies and searched a few bulbs out for me to put at the new house. In fact, there are some that come up each year at the family cemetery plot where Mama and Daddy are laid to rest.
We have left most of the front yard a natural woodland area and I chose this spot for my bulbs. Needless to say, I will think of my parents when they come up.
James had dinner with us on the night of our 40th anniversary and Buddy broke in the new gas grill with some tasty steaks.
This is the spot chosen for the Japanese Maple.
Sod day was pretty exciting! What a difference it made.
Farewell to another old friend.
A few limbs were trimmed that were hanging too close to the house.
Buddy built this bench a few years ago from some cypress that my brother stumbled upon. The annual beds are pansies and snapdragons. I’ve never had snapdragons before and I’m looking forward to having them bloom.
Our son, Will and his family, Dori, Beau and Paige have graciously “fostered” our sweet Ebony while we were apartment dwellers and getting settled in. She has just come home and is busy exploring and sniffing. Here we’re taking her on her first walk.
A couple of shots of the back.
And the front.
May all who step on this porch feel welcome and that they are entering a home full of love. Tour of the interior begins here.
