I figured it was time for another installment of “around the house” – Christmas style

Notice the little photos of Simon and Scarlett next to the Pet Emporium?

A Visit from Kermit

We’ve had rain everyday over the Fourth of July weekend. Not enough to ruin any of our activities (if we had any) but enough to cause a few mushrooms to sprout up out of the ground. But that\’s not all that sprouted up. Tonight when me (Simon) and Pop were out inspecting the front yard before bedtime, we spotted this fella hanging out on the side of the house above the garage door. If I were taller, I would have pulled a “Stani and Pupi” and chomped him! But instead, I had to settle for this crummy picture.

Hi ho! Kermit the Frog here.

We haven’t had an installment of “Around the House” in a few weeks so for this week, I’m going to show off a few of our favorite flowers that are in bloom right now.

This first one is a Day Lily that is absolutely gorgeous. It’s been patiently waiting to get planted for almost 2 weeks and we’re happy to announce that it finally found it’s forever home shortly after this photo was taken. It now resides in a bed next to our front door. Oh, and the flowers in the background are actually overflowing from one of two very large concrete planters that we have. They’re pretty too 🙂

This too is a Day Lily and I think it’s neat because of all the ruffles.

And lastly, these are called “Black-Eyed Susan” – because of the dark centers I presume. We also have one with purple petals and a dark green center that is called “Green-Eyed Susan”.

And to set the record straight, I am not the one in the family with the green-thumb. My main contributions to the flower beds are watering and hauling bags of top soil around for the expert (Judy). But I do cut the grass!

As promised, the “Around the House” series continues with a couple of Black and White photos of a metal (brass?) rhino. He also lives in the living room. To answer a couple of questions from last weeks “around the house” posting – No, I didn’t sculpt the scary pizza monsters. I wish I was that talented. And I have to admit that even though I am a Graphic Designer by profession, (some would wrongly associate “artsy” with that), my much more talented wifey is the one who is in charge of the house decor. Although sometimes she lets me pick colors 🙂
