Bring it on…

It has been a fabulous Friday here in the Lowcountry.  Work…was fun and productive, filled with friendship, laughter, and getting things done.  Spring is certainly well into its ‘middle’, but my camellias continue to bloom.  Less prolifically now, but still beautiful with their bright colors and soft petals.  The azaleas are also winding down their show.  Early bloomer are all but spent, but the late ones are in full color.  This week the tricolor azalea in the backyard…which occupies an ‘odd’ placement just standing alone and without any reason or plan we can find…burst into bloom.  Red, pink, and white ALL at once in one gorgeous display.  The wisteria is still blooming, but as it fades the magnolia will soon take over.

I added a wild carolina clematis along the fence next to the Kickin’ Chicken neighbors 🙂  If it lives up to its heritage it will cover the fence in a couple of years.  Spotted a bright coral lawn chair to add to the two turquoise ones in front of the house.  While DeeDee and I were picking up paint chips for her kitchen, dining room, and hall I took several home with me as well.  It will take a few years (fixed incomes are notoriously angsty about home improvement, lol) but one by one I will get my little beachy rooms painted and fixed up and turned into something everyone who lives here can enjoy.  Where to begin?  In the living room and hall which are the ‘public’ rooms?  In the kitchen which is just beige on beige?  The teen son’s bedroom which he will soon be sharing with the 5 yr old (I figure he deserves a little reward for that 😉 ) The equally beige on beige bathroom?

Decisions decisions.  If you were beginning this one room at a time project, where would you begin?

And because I have had such a fabulous Friday…. we get a little Fantasy reward.  It’s Fantasy Friday!

I am happily editing my fantasy and this picture reminds me of the backstory for the current scene.  The Ohnori of Khyr’s people went on a quest and never returned. His sword is found in the current scene where he flung it into the water where his enemies could not recover it.

Beautiful artwork isn’t it?
