hillbilly hotel

four knees

there is nothing like a baby leech to change your mind about stuff.

after work, i had gone to get the last edgers for the last bit of path in the front and saw a water trough in the front of the store.

me: "babydoll, can mama get you a pool?"
her: "uh, no."
me: "are you sure?"
her: "uh, yeah."

we unload the edgers and go to the river. while the girls are sunning in their jailbait bikinis and looking cute for the college guys, she looks down and goes "uh, mom. what is this on my foot?" okay, even a baby leech isn't cute. we remove it and pack our stuff up and head back.

her: "uh, mom. after we get that pool, can we get popsicles?"
me: "uh, okay!"

on the way to get the trough, i saw a bit of aqua & painted lettering in someone's trash. on the way back, we stopped. it was a huge hanging sign that says "theatre box office"! freaking awesome! i will hang it this week as a canopy in the coop!

the cabana boi

dmitri noel fills the spot of cabana boi nicely.

canopy

the neighbors' pecan tree serves as the perfect umbrella.

when i visioned my new garden last summer, i saw a girly german biergarten. after my turn in the tub, i came up for a breath and found it!

This is too much!
Love it. I have to say that any size leech would have me runnin' for the safety of the tub. Your garden is looking enticing, lovely and fun. Like you.

I'm loving your musical choices too!
