I often look out and enjoy the backyard in the evening but rarely take pictures. We were waiting for a storm to come through and some much needed rain so I thought I'd jump out and take a few shots.
I had to share this votive candle holder- it's from Pier 1. I thought it was cute and it has a hinge and a latch so you can open it to put it around the umbrella pole or take it away. I've removed it a couple of times to prevent it from getting wet and appreciated the design.
My Annabelle Hydrangeas are really coming along fast now. It's interesting how the white colors stand right out at night. I don't know why but these digital cameras tend to make it look lighter out that it really was.
I hand held all of this so they're not quite as good as they could be.
The new/old wagon out back.
The sum and substance hosta has really gotten big!
We're going to try a weed killer that uses 1/4 cup dish soap, 1 Gallon of white vinegar and 2 cups epsom salts. Has anyone heard of this and if it works? It's supposed to be quite potent but less toxic than the usual stuff like Roundup. You mix it up and make sure the salt is fully dissolved. Apply with a pump sprayer. We're battling weeds and grass on the patio. The moss looks nice but the weeds like to plant themselves right on top and grow making it hard to get rid of them.
