Wow - it's time again for the monthly 5 on 5 photo blog! I missed last month but I think that was meant to be. A little something that I've always wanted is now a reality and I get to share it here.
Fortunately for me, the old spindles and posts of the balcony finally rotted out. (Even spongy, insect-ridden, peeling wood has a purpose!) And now a new gorgeous railing, built by a real carpenter, has transformed the cage outside the windows into the oasis I had longed for in my sometimes crazy life.
Oasis. Say that word out loud. It's marvelous. And the definition? Oh not the one about a water hole in the dry desert, but THIS one: Something serving as a refuge, relief, or pleasant change from what is usual, annoying, or difficult.
Perfect. So come pull up a chair and I'll pour the wine. You're welcome.
|Just a sample of my end-of-day view. Ahhh.|
|I bought a planter! For the balcony! These beauties make my heart happy.|
|Honestly, who needs palm trees with this in my oasis?|
|This buddy finds his way out there every chance he gets.|
Thanks for spending time here today! Now step on over to see the glorious blooms on my sister Kim's 5 on 5 photo blog this month. From there you can click on to experience all the June wonder of our 5 on 5 community!
