I managed to plant around 200 of my white impatiens that I planted from seed and have been diligently keeping alive, waiting for the weather to warm up enough to put them outside. I still have around 100 more to plant, but they're a bit on the small side. Perhaps next weekend they'll be ready. I love how the white impatiens glow in the shady garden spots... and the twilight hours.
It was hard not to spend every minute outside on Friday. The sky was clear, the sun was warm. I inadvertently may or may not have gotten a little bit too much sun...
On Friday the Rhodie was almost fully in bloom. Another day or two and the pale pink will give way to white as it fully opens.
By today, Sunday, it was really at it's peak.
And after the little too much sun on Friday, well the grey and rainy Saturday was a good day to continue my on going painting in the front porch. The ceiling isn't as grey as this picture, there's more of an aqua-ish/blue hue to it. For such a small room, it sure is taking hours to paint. I believe I have about 14 or 15 hours in it already. Since it's an old enclosed porch it has siding instead of flat walls... that means painting with a brush. And LOTS of edging around all those windows.... Covering up all that green so far has taken a coat of primer and two coats of paint.
Although I loved the green, I think it will be a more peaceful space. And that's the original beaded board ceiling and light fixture... Can't wait to get it finished and show it off to all.
As I sit here Sunday evening... a little tired, a little sore, and inadvertently still a little pink... I'd like to tell all the Canadian bloggers... I hope you are enjoying your holiday weekend. And to all my fellow American bloggers... we're heading into the week before OUR long weekend... YEAH!
