Sue at It's A Very Cherry World is hosting her weekly party celebrating the color red!
These watering cans originally sat on the back porch steps, but while Mr. Old Glory was on vacation last week, he redid both the front and back steps. So they landed here, and I kind of think this is where they will stay!
The sedum that's growing on a pot on the red chair is really taking off. Soon it will be growing along the driveway. I love how you can barely see what's going on back there in the Secret Garden. The Sweet Autumn Clematis has totally taken over the old metal bed rail, and soon it will be covered in tiny white flowers.
The garage windowbox is doing well too, with red impatiens and red million bells. And red shutters!
I got a package in the mail a little while ago from Deb, aka Garage Sale Gal. In it was this adorable card that Deb made, and it fits in perfectly with my little garden decorations on the bookshelf.
This vintage postcard was in there too. Old Glory. How perfect is that?!
And this patriotic Christmas card. I'm trying to collect holiday cards and postcards that are also patriotic, and this is my first Christmas one. And she sent me these things for no other reason than that she is a sweetheart. Thank you SO much Deb!
Now if you would like to see more reds, head on over to Sue's!
