Porch Disguises

Since the porch turned out to be such a lively/vibrant/shocking/ridiculous blue, I bought some more flowers to try to disguise it. The containers on the left are flowers I repotted, so they will take a little time to fill out.

To replace the evil barberry bush that I dug out, I have a new rose, Tuscan rose, and a few yellow daisies to keep it company. For those of you who were concerned, the 3 bare root roses are starting to liven up. Yay!

GB...your little rose is moved and has a couple of new friends.

This is the back door pot. I added the pink daisies where I stole some alyssum for one of the front porch pots. :-)

Great Zot

We heard on the news that the middle school was on fire, so I decided to go take a look. The fire trucks were clustered near the entrance closest to my room. The action was obviously on the back side of the building -- my side. And as I turned the corner, I had the sneaking suspicion that the spectators were looking towards my room. Yep. Lightning hit MY ROOM. The fire had been put out, but the firefighters were cutting open and digging out more roof and debris to make sure nothing more was smoldering. Here are some pics:

There was surprisingly little water damage. The firefighters got tarps down and moved furniture out of the way.

My poor door!
