Here is my ingenious rack for icky, outdoor shoes! It used to be on the back of a door, but I only used the top half of the rack, and I duct-taped it to our back porch rail. Works great!
Here is a wonderful bush that our neighbor has, but it's right on our driveway. It's so cheerful, with its bright yellow blooms. Does anyone know what it is?
Here's a close-up. Our neighbor has said we may dig up the volunteers that have sprouted around the base. It's a fast-grower.
Finally, my bleeding-heart plant has begun to show its face, slowly. I've placed sticks around it (gently) to discourage our dog from lying on top of it, in its present baby-state.
