LOVE OUR NEIGHBORS

I seriously have the best neighbors.  I don't want to brag, but I'm just sayin.  Just a for instance: We had just returned from the Farmer's Market today and stopped to talk to our next door neighbor and watch the butterflies and hummingbirds enjoy a feast at her zinnia smorgasbord.  I confessed to her that I covet her flowers and sometimes come and take photos.  Tim wanted to buy me a bouquet of zinnias at the Market, but I told him my house was in such disarray with projects strewn about that they'd just get lost.  A few minutes later she came to the door with these.  Aren't they wonderful?  Isn't she wonderful?

 

My other neighbors are out of town and asked us to pick their tomatoes for ourselves.  Sorry, I didn't wash them first but they are fresh off the vine.  They'll be so yummy with basil tonight and we'll eat on the back porch (the only solid surface still available in the house) and pray our neighbors gardens grow even bigger and better.

  5. I AM NOT TRADING! Sorry, but I have some past neighbors that would make your head spin. So no trading, BUT I'll let you know about any houses on the market.

  8. Your are lucky! It's a gift to have good neighbors! I'm also glad to hear that all of your surfaces are covered in projects! That describes my house, too. We eat on the couch.
