Our back porch is *tiny*, kind of like our pantry, but I've tried to make it as functional as possible without purchasing new stuff. Moving into new places every few year is sometimes a challenge - one place things fit a little better than the next. The back porch has been has been a challenge us, but I finally have it comfortable. I love sitting outside in the wee hours of the morning when the sun isn't beating down making everything unbearable.
My friend Rachel gave this plant to me about a month ago before she moved. I'm trying to do right by it...it has lost a few leaves but for the most part I think it is pretty happy here in its new home.
The spider plant in the red pot is from my MIL. She gave it to me last year when we were visiting...it made the trip all the way home, and then within 3 months I almost killed it. I was able to resesitate it and as you can see it is doing splended now!
Two summers ago Hubby bought this piece of bark looking stuff in Hawaii. Last summer we put it in water and it spouted so we planted it in soil. This past winter I thought I killed it (see a pattern?) but this summer it came back stronger than ever!
There really isn't anything special about this picture - other than I need to paint the wall above the flag....
I love this little bug...we bought him in San Diego and he is hanging out on a wall outside.
We bought these guys at the J.J. market in Bangkok. You can see them as you walk out of the house...
Another bug from San Diego
I know I am going to catch grief from a few people because of these next three pictures. Yes I have hummingbirds in my back yard. Yes I sit around waiting to take pictures of them. Yes I am old. Bring it on my friends, bring it on.....
Do you want to know their names? ;o)
More San Diego bugs.
I just love these little guys....
The view from the yard.
Our back porch (yes, I need to trim the bushes).
