~~ Lights! ~~
We needed new lighting in the living room so I bought a brand new ceiling fan light kit and WOW was it bright!
This gives Mike ideas. We had bought another palm frond looking ceiling fan at a garage sale and had installed it in Mike's shop. He got busy and re-installed in our dining area to match the one in the living room. Nice.
Now he's a project in mind. It involves these metal fence posts that we dug out years ago and some major power tools.
He cut those posts to size and painted them white to match the lanai. He screwed them into the wall and installed our "old" ceiling from the dining area into the lanai.
~~ Camera! ~~
Blooming like crazy!
This mocking bird gave quite a show. He was just singing away and hopping up and down on the wire.
~~ Action! ~~
Not very exciting for action but it's a bowl of pinecones.
Yes, yes, it's a paint project. I had acquired this set of brightly colored bowls for cheap (read free) and I had an idea for a decorative project.
So I painted them to look like zinnias (kinda) and one that looks like an acorn.
The plant is an elephant ear. Cindy had sent me one a long time ago and it grew into this HUGE six foot plant. The original plant died but it had put out many babies. They never grew back. Every one of them got about this big and died but they still kept coming up. Maybe this time I can get one growing again.
Elby checking out the new area... and the new plant.
Um, Elby loves plants!!
And here's your action. She immediately, I mean like within 2 minutes, proceeded to eat the new plant.
Aw, sad. It was so pretty. I've got to find a nice green, easy to grow plant that the cat won't tear to pieces.
