It has been hot, hot, hot here for the past couple of weeks. Between the intense heat and watering restrictions it is surprising that anything survives but some hardy plants such as Rudbeckias, better known as Black-eyed Susan, defy the odds.
I took this picture in the morning after coming home from my walk, I was pleased with was how pretty these Rudbeckias were. I planted them in several places in the garden because they stand up so well to torrid conditions and I hoped that they would take center stage in this spot when the roses stopped blooming. They seem to have done just that.
And now for an update on the living room project.
I am still sanding and painting woodwork but hope to finish this week, then I can start wallpapering.
Putting together fabric possibilities is really fun. These are all from different manufactures but they goes well together.
I have already purchased the fabric on the bottom right for the living room drapes and the solid rose colored one is my current favorite for the entry hall drapes. The others...for accents.
The entry hall is done. All painted, including the ceiling details and the new molding. I don't think anything adds more to a room then decorative molding.
As for Miss Twiggley she doesn't worry about painting, (although she did manage to get paint on her tail) political conventions, or keeping the garden watered, but she does care about comfort. Her favorite activity right now is sprawling out in front of an air conditioning vent and snoozing the day away.
I think life as a cat must be very pleasant indeed.
Thank you for visiting, I hope you have a wonderful day.
