The weeks have been flying by too quickly and once again I find it’s time to join up with Cathy for the Tuesday view. If you remember last week there were tarps and shingles flying, and since the roofer also happens to be a friend of mine, guilt had me up there over the weekend lugging bundles around and throwing in a hand to help out (even if it was only for an hour or two). The view is nice up there, and what better vantage point for this week’s view?
A view from the top reminds me of a similar post over at The Rusty Duck last year. Jessica was up the scaffolding getting a new outlook on the garden, and although she made it slightly higher than the roofline of my neighbor’s one story ranch, I think the effect is the same. Something about seeing the same old view from a different perspective always makes it seem new and exciting again… even though my wife was less than excited to find out I also took my daughter up there.
A new look or not there’s really nothing special worth mentioning this week. Don’t get me wrong, I spend far too much time each week just soaking in the color and lushness of this bed, but I’m going to try and be considerate and spare you yet another stripped canna leaf close-up or castor bean portrait. I’m sure a few will show up this winter when the cold and snow get to be too much.
Have a great week and consider giving Cathy a visit at Words and Herbs to see what other Tuesday views are looking like. I hear there’s talk of autumn in the air…
