Today has been a weird day. I woke feeling draggy; coughing, sneezing, generally out of sorts. As the day has progressed, I'm not feeling much better except the coughing and sneezing are gone. I decided I needed some Vitamin D so I went outside to the patio for some sunshine and fresh air. We live in a pretty quiet neighborhood except for the lady 2 doors down who likes to play her music at earsplitting volume. Oh well, to each his own.
I decided a tour of my yard would be appropriate for today's post. It's amazing what you see when you just stroll around and take random shots. I hope you enjoy.
The magnolia tree is seeding and I love the huge pods with the red berry thingies sticking out. I know, not very scientific but then I call my magnolia, "Maggie May" so what can you expect? *smile*
The SLOW picture is from the street in front of my house, a warning for drivers that we have kids in the neighborhood. It also serves as a reminder to me to enjoy life.
Bandit had to get in at least one picture. This is some type of begonia, I'm not sure what kind. It comes back every year and has been in front of the heat pump unit for several years. It must like it there.
The last two pictures are of some sedum in pots on the patio. I love sedum. I love the texture, the softness and the fact that even I can't kill it! At one time we had pots all along the rock wall full of flowers, sedum, etc and it was so lovely. I spent a lot of time out there, pulling weeds and watering. I want to get that back. Hopefully next spring will see a return of the patio garden with maybe some herbs thrown in. How lovely would that be?
As always, thanks for stopping by. I hope each of you has a lovely day wherever you might be.
