Flowers...toad stools...toads...and flags...

Isn't this a cool idea....
my neighbors just did this to the front of their house...

another cool idea I found on my walk...
a old stump used as a planter...
and I have to old stumps in the ground...
gonna have to do something about that....
I have seen these advertised...
this is the first one I've seen in person...
I guess it does work...

I love the shape and design of this
mushroom/toadstool....

speaking of Toads....
look who was under Rooster's pool....
he/she was not at all interested in a photo session.....

Paw Paw brought it over for little britches to get a closer look...
he even petted it.... so he is a real boy now...
and yes Oma sanatized his hands afterwards....
I think Mr/Mrs. toad would like one of those toadstools now..

this one might work out just fine....

I hope you all have a safe and happy Memorial day weekend...
I am so looking forward to a three day weekend...
we have a Arts Festival to go to...
I have a photo shoot...
and we are going to our property again....
any big plans???
Thank you to all that service and have served in the military...
without you.....we would not be safe or free...
you will all be in our thoughts...
and to the families who share them with us....
Thank you...

Love the stump-as-planter idea!

Sure hope the hanging tomato plants will work for us. Ours are no where near this stage yet, of course.

-chuckle- SO glad Oma sanitized his hands, after.

The toadstools are beautiful, are they not?!?

And of course, the Flag is beautiful!

I wish you and yours, a lovely and peaceful Memorial Day Weekend. To enjoy! While we remember.

The stump planter is very creative. Love the mushroom and the frog photos. Little britches is getting his natural history education early!

i love toads. i think they're just adorable with their googly eyes and little butts. and you caught him jumping! :)

i think your neighbors' design is neat - i hope it stays affixed to the brick.

hope you have a great weekend - going to the land sounds like the best part (except in the 90 degree humid weather! but better now than july!)

Sounds like a full and fun weekend you have planned. The mushroom pictures are great. Love it! And the topsy turvey tomato planter is interesting. I've wondered if they really work too. How is your garden coming along?

Jeanie said...

That mushroom picture is really pretty. You have such a good eye as all your pictures show.
I second your thanks to our military.

I like the idea of the stump planters! I didn't think he was a real boy till he put the toad into his pocket...
