It is so great to be greeted by these flowers every morning. The idea of having vines on a second story deck is sort of impossible but the longer the fall season last the more these vines will grow.
My sedum from the old place are blooming. They are short this year but next year they will be tall. The volunteer cockscomb looks nice contrasting with the pale pink. All is going to get a watering this morning. I should have stayed on the watering on this garden but I guess I just got worn out from doing it. Water is not going to save the petunias in that area.
I found on the internet that enamel that shines shows the uneven surface of things. The kitchen cupboards were originally plywood, shellac painted, home made cabinets. I met the carpenter once when he worked for the phone company. They were painted a coat of a gosh awful mixed color of green before I bought it. I have painted them two different colors in 30 years. The white shows the uneven levels of so many coats of paint. The net says that I can paint a satin kind of paint on top of it as long as the paint brand is the same. The satin paint will not show any shine.
The history of this kitchen was one of a large cast iron sink and drain board. The stove was apparently a wood burning cast iron, woodturning one. The chimney marks still show on the cedar siding on the outside of that wall of the brick chimney. New cabinets must have been put in when city water was installed. The old sink in now in the basement and the plywood was a dated product of the 60s. When I sell this 1904 house, it will have an all white kitchen. It will look good before I sell it. Taking a day off from than and will do easy things today. Thanks for checking in today.
