Split personality...

Look! It's a bird blind!

No, wait! It's a potting bench!

A spate of nice weather led this gardener outside to do a little re-potting, in the long yellow light of late afternoon.

  1. Now that's what I like to see, where work has been done! Nothing like a little potting soil all over the place.

  2. Is that the sun? What a fabulous day and some real live gardening getting done. And maybe some bird photos snapped?

  4. Darla, I agree completely!

    Frances, yes, that is something we all once knew as the sun, making a return appearance. Actually, it seldom ever goes away here--it just gets cold.

    And sadly, no bird photos today--too many things on my plate!

  7. Hi Susan,
    I just love that long yellow light of late afternoon this time of year. So glad you were able to do some re-potting in it.

  8. No sun here today, but glad to see you got some. Love the dual-purpose structure. What were you potting up there?

  9. It's a bird bench! No, wait it's a potting blind! No, wait, uh... it sure is handy, whatever you call it. Isn't it nice to get outside and get something done.

  10. Tina, I do hope people get some sunshine soon. Wish I could pack it up and send it out...

    Jan--I had a good time. :-)

    Meems, I love that afternoon light, too. I think it is my favorite.

    Anonymous, my good friend, that was a succulent called a "Panda" plant that I got at a local nursery.

  13. I would do it in a flash, EG, if I could figure out a way!

    Gail, the soil is like a little spice thrown on top, no?

  15. Looks like an absolutely beautiful Texas day. I went to college in Texas and have such fond memories of the sunsets and wonderful weather. Glad you enjoyed it for the rest of us!
