Good Fences, Petunia Reflections, and Grandkids






I'm not sure what's enclosed by the woven wire, but there is a small pond in the middle. I see a horse, but I'm not sure if this is his pen.






It must be tough being a corner post, having to bear all that responsibility!



 'Aw, Lucy, don't cry.'

How could I resist this? Our daughter sent us this new photo of little Lucy and her big brother. We are so hoping that they will be able to move closer. Nine hours is just too far away!

The above are some additional photos I took while we were visiting them in Indiana. Lots of fences.

'Climbing the Ladder to Nowhere'

Remember that petunia I found growing in my aloe plant? Well, look at it now! I had quietly sneaked out onto the deck the other day to try to capture a photo or two of the many robins (who all vanished instantly and never returned for me photograph), when I turned around and caught a glimpse of the plants on the other side of the patio door. There were no longer one or two blossoms, but the longer daylight hours had encouraged a multitude of pretty blossoms to appear.

What a sweet photo of the grandchildren, I'm still waiting on my new grandsons arrival it should be any day. You certainly do have a green thumb, I can barely keep my hanging baskets of geraniums, that sit on my kitchen table until warmer weather green.

That is a nice, sturdy fence post. Interesting gate. Cute grands! Mine are 2 1/2 hours away and 4 1/2 hours away. Still not close enough.

Such a sweet sibling photo! (And I am all for Lucy & Co. moving closer! It's hard being a long distance grandmother. I know.)

Lucy is growing so fast! And it looks like Big Brother adores her.
How long until the Petunias can go outside?

A Quiet Corner said...

Yes, I think being a corner post is just as much work as being a Mom...having others lean on you all the time!...:)JP

Cheryl @ TFD said...

I like your fence with the sturdy post and the beautiful flowers, but my favorite photo of all is of your adorable grands! That photo belongs in a frame!

Great fence shots. I like that you posted the corner post shot, that's a different perspective on a fence. I also liked the shot with the green arbor behind that fence. Oh my your grandkids are adorable, such a sweet photo.

I love the fences and that gate! Lucky horse to have such a pretty entryway! The petunias are being quite brave for petunias. I've never had them volunteer anywhere. Your grandchildren are adorable. I hear ya on having grand babies too far away. I'm on the west coast and mine are in VA. They're moving to TX this summer so they will be a little bit closer!

Carla from The River said...

Wow ~ very neat to capture the photo of the petunia. I love it.
Your grandchildren are so sweet.
I just love that photo as well.
