It’s apparently just the red neck thing to do….



It’s the way he painted the deck table and chairs, its the way I painted a cast iron vessel that became a flower pot and it’s the way I painted the little red wagon that I”m using for flowers…ya just – hang em’ in the tree and spray paint away.  Apparently he will not soon forget the spring we had a spray paint shadow in the yard of something I painted.  Putting down a sheet or newspapers to protect the grass from the color didn’t even enter my thought process.  I mean…the grass will grow what difference does it make.  Apparently it makes a difference.  I realize that I have a problem with attention to detail.  I ain’t got it!  I love to spray paint things and with an eye roll he just hikes them up the tree with a rope!

I’m holding a daily vigil waiting for the peonies to open up.



Spring comes so much earlier in Missouri than it did in Iowa and I’m loving it!

Until next time…..

  1. Peonies are my favorite. For years – we’d go to bike week in NH and miss them popping open. It always made me sad. Then – when we thought we were moving, we dug them up and planted them at our new place – but then never actually moved into the new place. :-(. W bought me more a few years back and this year, I think we’ll get a few more. They’re probably my favorite – besides hydrangea’s and cabbage roses.


  2. We bought peonies last night. Can’t wait to have beautiful flowers in another year or so!

  3. I’ve never hung anything in a tree to paint but oh so many spray paint silhouettes on my lawn over the years. Good times.
