Out my bedroom window ...

Hubby snapped this picture from our upstairs bedroom window ... he wanted to get a picture of the sunflowers along the back of the garden ... see them back there peeking over the top of the greenhouse?  The tallest ones are about 11' tall now ...


A good chunk of today was spent in the heat and humidity under the Easy Up canopy painting rough side cedar for the trim ... I was soooooooooooo sure it would be barn red ... it's what I had envisioned from very early on in this little endeavor ... well, it's not going be barn red ... it's now Autumn Gray which is really a gray/green/sage-y color that you can see here:  http://www.ppgpittsburghpaints.com/menards/Documents/pdf/exterior.pdf

I LOVE it!!!!  The sign on the front will be a barn red color ... still working on the name ... hubby likes Aunt Polly's Greenhouse ... I love Grandma Tinkerbell's Greenhouse which is what my lil Piper calls it.

Second coat of paint tomorrow ...

This project is looking better and better, T. You really are a maniac for painting in this weather! I love the color, but where on earth did that name come from? Can't wait to see it all finished.
