A little backyard color.

.

I’m going to bore you with more autumn photos.

.

.

Because even walking around the backyard is lovely during this season.

.

.

Blueberry bushes aren’t very attractive most of the year, but the red is pretty striking now.

.

.

And you’ll be happy to know the un-manning of the man cave porch continues… with 5 chrysanthemums and two pumpkins complimenting the wreath.

.

.

Apples?

.

.

Our trees are bursting with more than we can use. But why are the best ones always so damned high up?

.

It’s like the blue or gold dress all over again.

.

* Disclaimer – a mistake was made in scheduling. This post should have been viewed before yesterday’s, so please forget you saw that one. My bad. *

Our (magical, never to be caught actually working, might be an elf) contractor was by the other day to put the first coat of stain on our bar top.

.

.

So while the husband and I were checking progress, I took pictures.

.

.

And it wasn’t until I started posting them that I realized the damn thing appeared to be 2 different colors.

.

.

At first I thought it was a matter of angles and shadows but the picture above and below this text are basically the same, just taken 12 minutes apart.

.

.

And I swear I didn’t alter the hue or color on my phone.

.

.

I have no explanation. Although now that I think about it, this might be a fun bar game after a few toddies.

.

.

Just for the fun of it I placed a few fronting pieces to get an idea what the finished product would look like.

.

.

And I think while not a perfect match to the chairs we ordered…

.

.

It might be close enough.

.

He loves me.

.

And I love him.

.

.

Which is easy to do when he has things like this delivered for my birthday a while back.

.

.

Our local florist does lovely arrangements.

.

.

But it’s a bit of a challenge when every time they ask my husband what colors I like, he tells them green.

.

.

And since green flowers are rather rare, I tend to get a lot of predominantly white bouquets.

.

.

Still pretty, and I’m not complaining.

.

.

But.

.

.

🤣 🤣 🤣

.

I have a question.

 

So if someone could tell me what this is?

That would be great.

Because I was out shopping with a girlfriend a month ago and found something on the ladies clearance rack I can’t explain.

 

 

Let’s ignore the fact it’s butt ugly.

And there’s a random patch of black lace on a sweatshirt.

Let’s also ignore the clashing colors of the plastic gewgaws on the breast.

What. The. Utter. F*ck?

Is there a group of low limbed mutant women roaming my state?

 

 

Or maybe they have 4 arms….. and can’t decide if they want to go sleeveless.

Either way, I can’t begin to fathom how anyone else would be able to wear this monstrosity.

 

Winter blues….

 

No, not the depression.

Sorry, not the brothers either.

I’m talking about the colors.

Living in Maine, most of our winters are white. But there’s also a lot of beautiful blue…

And when a storm is moving in?

It’s really quite lovely.

These were all taken through my dirty winter windows last month, so be kind.

But spots and all..

You have to admit winter blues are pretty.

Even the ones that turn out kind of weird.
