JimBob bought the house next to my late mother-in-law's house. I think the plan is to eventually fix it up and turn it into a rental, but in the meantime I sure hate to see the flowers going to waste in the yard. I thought I'd better liberate just one small branch of these lovely blooms!
Overgrown gardens around old houses are just the best, aren't they? Maybe it's because I don't have a green thumb, but I adore overflowing shrubs and out of control vines and volunteer patches of flowers that spring up here and there in a yard.
Makes me want to just walk up to the porch and invite myself to sit in the swing for a while and watch the world go by. Don't worry, though. I really don't go around sitting on stranger's front porches, invitation or not :)
Oh, and I don't pick flowers uninvited unless I'm sneaking a bouquet from my mother's plentiful garden or borrowing JimBob's unappreciated flowers like I did these.
Here's to sunny, lazy, summertime Saturday afternoons!
Hope yours is a fine one!
