I’m participating in a blog color story series hosted by Jules, of Pancakes and French Fries. Each month, Ms. Jules will recap a month in the life of herself and her family using colors that have been previously chosen for that month. For instance, May has been ‘Jacaranda’ , for those of you who, like me (live under a New Mexican rock) and have never heard of a jacaranda tree, it’s a lovely tree the blooms beautiful purple flowers. So, any and everything purple was photographed for May. June will be “Peacock”, so all things with a lovely blue hue will be captured on film..er…by digital camera. You can find more details over at Jules’ blog home here.
I wasn’t able to get my color story for April prepared until mid May, so if you are interested, please visit my story here.
Unfortunately, May flew by, without much purple in sight ,which was a disappointment I had big plans for all of it’s purple-y goodness. The reason May flew by so quickly you ask? Well, I’ve been working on a little landscape “renovation” of my front and backyards. I know there aren’t many shades of violet and lavendar in this lil project photo story, but you will see a few glimpses of my purple and blue Bachelor Buttons. That counts for a color story doesn’t it?
Here’s what she looked like before I started my endeavor:
Ignore the weed grass, that’s the cowlick of my front yard. And my car usually has a hubcap, Bubba was working on the brakes, stopping is a good thing! Oh, and notice the purple bachelor buttons!
The yard after the first full day…
Not very pretty or inviting…
Here she is on the third day, apparently I was way too tired after the second day to take photos…
I decided a nice little path might make things more interesting, and say “Welcome” instead of “Go away, I know who Jesus is!”.
The plan, to seed or sod or possibly cover with wood mulch, the dirt rectangle by the front porch and flower bed. And to place left over crusher fine for the path. Painting of the porch and garage border will come soon after all the heavy work has been completed. Stay tuned for my big reveal!
One more, very unrelated thing to the color purple or moving rocks, May 21st marked my FIRST blogiversary! Yep, it’s been a whole year since I got up the courage and I started my ramblings here at my blog home. There wasn’t a party, but there was carrot cake, and yes, I blew out the candle and made a little bloggie wish. But I can’t tell or it won’t come true!
