Since we have not done a whole lot with the new bungalow rent house we purchased, we decided to go over there today to clean up, paint and plan the next stage for this house. I painted the dining room and then, somewhere in there, I got bored and took my new SLR camera around to see what kind of pictures I could get out of it. I have bought two books on digital SLR photography…by the way…so, I wanted to try out some of the tips in the book. Even though they are not phenomenal, you have to admit that these photos are MUCH better than what my old dying digi cam was taking last month. The last picture cracks me up. It looks like Vivian needs to go on a FEED THE CHILDREN campaign poster! LOL. I found her in the living room eating a piece of leftover Popeyes chicken. She looked so funny in her do-rag (I wear one when I paint and you know the old saying, monkey see, monkey do, monkey has to have one too!) Although, I do believe she looks a LOT better than I do in a do-rag.
Bye bye orange peel!! Hello Timothy Straw by Benjamin Moore!
This house has a beautiful yard. Since it borders our yard, we are toying with the idea of moving our property lines and having it resurveyed, etc. I cut several blooms from this very old hydrangea bush. I am also toying with the idea of digging the thing up and planting it somewhere in our back yard. I found this pink looking bloom. I am not sure what it is. I can’t tell if it is a weed or if it is some sort of old flower. Anyone know?

I think it’s Garden Phlox. Quite lovely and not a weed! I have mystery plants that show up in my garden too. 🙂
Thanks! Garden Phlox huh? I am going to have to check that out. Very few things grow here in LA. Usually if they are that pretty, they are weeds! LOL
I love the pictures- they are amazing!
Thanks! Your husband says they are a far cry better than the ones my dying camera has been taking these past 4-5 months or so!!!! HA!
