The blue pine is nice but I really like the weathered old barn wood. It has beautiful rich deep brown colours. And I love the price. And am tickled that another part of the homestead gets to have a new life instead of being tossed away.
This is a close up of the barn-wood knot in the top pane. Could it be the eye of the green house deity? What ever, I am a firm believer that the Big Guy does nice knots!
We originally were going to paint everything white but now I am leaning on just varathaning the wood trim - it's just too nice to cover with re-cycled semi gloss latex. Here's the view from out of the windows. That's gotta help the plants grow don't you think?
Speaking of which, were taking today off of green house construction to put the plantings into the tire garden that your seeing in the bottom pane.
❧When we wrapped up work at eight thirty we got to come into the house laden with the heady aroma of Soup Sunday. Today's variation was the filling Hamburger Soup from a cook book my Daughter and Son in law made from old family recipes. Soup and home made crusty brown bread. Mmmmm.
Looking forward to Meatless Mondays supper. I was thinking of stir fried zucchini, mushrooms, carrots, bok choi with a curried Tofu. Not a hundred mile dinner by a long shot. But soon. Hope springs eternal in a gardeners heart!
My wish is that your heart is filled with the wonder of today.
