Flowers often look fine in close-ups. Take the humble kalanchoe that actually has far more presence/oomph in a close-up.
Usually, I am trying to disguise the less than pleasant around here. However, I've never minded showing the view out this window, though I most certainly have avoided the close-up in the opposite direction.
This was taken after the siding was finished, but before the window fix. (I'm not sure that I should say "siding" anymore. I was visiting a blog recently where the blogger described all siding as "ugh." ♪We are old; we are poor; we don't want to paint anymore♪)
A lonely lily... Yesterday afternoon, I played carpenter's helper and spent a lot of time trotting back and forth.
Have you ever helped your husband with a project? Seems mine had a few minor complaints and wished to tell me about them. Seems he thought I should be able to figure out exactly what he wanted and when. Finally, I told him that I was busy with many things besides being his helper. I was taking photos, looking for squirrels, wondering where all the acorns went, checking the light, shooing turkey vultures off. Right. I had a lot to do!
In the end, he finished it up. And now I've only thought of one more thing to add to our list. We really need to get that mold off our shingles!
Thanks, John! It looks great! You worked hard and have paid a price in aches and pains. I can probably handle that roof if you show me how. ;>
No need for clever disguises...well, I am NOT showing you that garden!
