Seems like only yesterday that I was “bragging”
about our garden shed’s new roof.
See for yourself:
B O R I N G !
How can such a morale boost from yesterday
turn into such a big YAWN today?!
Here’s why! Feast your eyes on this rooftop fabulousness!
These snapshots were taken yesterday evening at my favorite garden center,
Blumen Gardens, in Sycamore, Illinois (about 90 miles west of Chicago).
Clonk! I shoulda had a growing roof!
I told G.O. that he should thank his lucky stars
that I didn’t spy this a week ago . . .
. . . because we totally would have put one of these
on our garden shed!
Sigh. Oh, well . . . just file this under “missed opportunities” . . .
. . . or, as I like to say at moments like this: “Next house!” 😉
Anyway, let’s have a look-see at the rest of Blumen Gardens:
Trees are discounted at all the garden centers now, so I say “why not?”
Are you with me?
It was at this very moment
thatI made a mental note to myself that yes,
we WOULD be installing crackled glaze tiles
into our kitchen backsplash. What say ye?
I shall share this fun factoid with G.O., using this blog post as a visual guide,
the minute it’s time for us to install our backsplash!
But I digress, as I often do.
Meanwhile, here’s one last photo of my beloved Blumen Gardens.
Imagine yourself in this charming setting,
with wonderful classical music playing throughout.
Do those corbels rule, or what?!
Just now I’m penciling in a trip to the flea market later this month
in search of said-same!
I’ll be heading to the liquor store sometime today (hic!),
as I am anxious to start a cobalt blue bottle collection of my own!
I wonder what kind of beverages are sold in cobalt blue!?
