REDNESDAY


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!

I think you must have planted that window box with Rednesday in mind. My window box asked me not to plant anything this year since I am bad at remembering to water.

Hello Carol, I hope you're doing well?! And you're having a great summer. Here in Holland the weather is great since today. There was a LOT of rain. I like you're swimming vintage post-card-I love that style. Wishing you a great Rednesday with heart&soul from Sil.

I can't believe you have flowers still. Nothing is flowering here. Even the weeds look dead. Love the window box. Those old patriotic cards are some of my favorites....smiles....Renee

I had a Radio Flyer when I was a kid. Your photo brings back memories!

I’M FOND OF CERISE

For red my affection is great,
It’s puce and chartreuse that I hate.
I’m fond of cerise,
It makes a nice piece
Of clothing that looks just first-rate.

I've never seen a patriot Christmas card before! How cute! I love your red chair and wagon. I bought some red paint back in October and I haven't used a drop of it yet! What's wrong with me? Well, at least I actually posted for Rednesday today! ♥
