Lighten Up...

Made a real change in the colour scape around lower sublovia (home). After looking at dark brown for so many years it is a pleasing change. The colour scheme is evolving with my better half's help and finding more miss tints at the General Paint store.  

Here we are Power wash, Painting  and Done

All Decked out with details. 
Copper 'March to your own Drummer', freshly painted chair, Mooseport Sask. Stained glass, 
1970's owl I bought it in North Van. (the lady said it cost $75)
 and freshly painted metal shelf. 

    Everything is so clean, the blueberries are awesome, Wendy's flowers are looking great!

More Flowers and a Happy Bee so Bee Happy on this fine day!
