He's Alive .......

 Remember my dead scarecrow? He's alive, he's alive!!


His clothes used to glow in the dark. The fabric has lost that capability. It is, after all almost 25 years old. I worked for a fabric chain then. We were all amazed with this new fabric. We stole away in groups to the stock room to turn out the lights and gaze at the fabric and giggle. Grown women. I actually wore this to work one Halloween. My kids were so proud .........


I hope my face didn't look like this, although he is kind of cute.


Fred Sanford struck again. He brought home an office chair. We don't really need one, since he gave me a new one for my birthday. But, it was free ...... and he was wondering if I could use it. Somewhere. So, where did he put it? On the front porch. Kind of kills the ambiance of a rustic campground, don't you think?


This is the garden I weeded after the rain.


Planted some lavender. It smells so good. I am hoping it will spread out so that when the wind blows I can pick up the scent. That has already happened with the mint that has taken over my hollow log.


The gourd vine has picked a fine time to bloom! Too late for gourds to grow, but my ferns are looking good after the hot dry summer.


Zinnias still blooming!


Clematis is fooled by the recent weather.


The sweet potato plant is looking a little sad from the frosty nights we had not long ago.

I bet if you thought on it long enough you could figure out a way to decorate the office chair to coordinate with everything else on the porch. Maybe paint a big frog on the back?!?

Love the scarecrow! My annuals came back to life with this warm weather; too bad I had to throw them out and clean off the patio to get ready for winter.
