Every time I pass my front window and catch a glimpse of the flowers out front it knocks my socks off. I stop what I am doing and just take in that view of those scrumptious flowers. I love what Ray has created out here. It used to be grass.
The orange lilies are divine. I am thinking that my orange piece for the 12 x 12 Orange Challenge just has to have some of these lilies in it.
The big, tall lilies have started blooming. So beautiful and so fragrant. They perfume the entire yard.
This is as big as my face.
The studio progresses. The plumbing guy worked out there all day today. His work is not so visible, but oh, so important. I started trying to figure out where everything will go today. Yesterday I went out and shopped for a toilet and sink and looked at shelving. Shelving has me a little stymied, but I think I'm figuring something out.
Our son-in-law arrived home from Ecuador last night and came to look at the construction this morning. This has all happened while he was gone. I think he was pretty excited—I think I've mentioned that he designed the studio. He said that the little country house in Ecuador that he designed for his mother is having problems with the plumbing. I asked what kind of sewer/septic system it has and he told me that the sewer dumps into the river. Oyyy! Of course I thought of all the hoops we have jumped through to build this anywhere near our little creek. Apparently water quality is not quite as high a priority in Ecuador.
