Sunday Flower Pr0n: I <3 Day Lilies

I love day lilies. I think it’s because they so exuberant. I have multiple cultivars (they don’t all bloom at the same time, so even without the Stella D’Oros I have about a month of day lilies).

I have lots of hostas not because I love them, but because they grow in shade, which I have a lot of, and they’ll thrive.

Because I have so much shade, I also have several varieties of fern.

Here are the ubiquitous Stella D’Oros. These get put anywhere I want to ignore.

And two of the other day lily varieties blooming now.

Tuesday Flower Pr0n

My day lilies are blooming! Unfortunately they’re kinda beat up. But the balloon flower and hostas look nice!

Flower Pr0n, Part the Second: Around the House

I slacked on taking pictures of the spring flowers around my house, but here’s what’s blooming today!

My lavender is blooming like crazy this year! Anyone want some?

In addition to my herb garden, I’ve got planters of a few vegetables this year.

Project Chairs: FINISHED

HUZZAH! They’re done!

Here’s what the chairs looked like before I started. The chair on the right had the most damage, with the replaced back board and broken bar. Plus, most of the joints were no longer flush together.

Kitchen Chairs

Here’s the most damaged chair, in pieces.

So, I'm doing this.

Here are the repairs on the two most damaged pieces:

And here are the finished chairs.

The damage is still visible, but BY GUM the repair is smooth and sturdy!

The two repaired chairs are in front.

Next major project will be the table–or the bedroom floor since that’s the last room that needs done.
