Staining My Porch

And I'm not finished. I'm putting it on with a brush. For one reason, it is so windy today. The storms will be tomorrow. Plus, I ran out of stain. I didn't go buy more, because the rain is coming. I blocked off the steps, to keep everyone off until it dries. I'm going by instructions; twenty-four hours.

Never mind! That didn't work. I looked out the door and there she was. Luckily it was dry enough not to matter.

This morning before getting started with my work, I looked out the back window and saw a cardinal building a nest in the sweet olive.

It is hard to see her in this picture; she just blends in. She was bringing another twig. I hope she continues to build it here.

Ending with a picture of my Almond. Something almond?

Beautiful bush. Beautiful porch.

Who could resist such a very inviting porch?

I love the color. It looks so warm and cozy. Hopefully you will be doing a post about the eggs in the nest and the the birds. Good luck.
Yes, we are expecting about 6 inches of rain, flooding and possible tornadoes from tonight through Weds. Hope no one has anything but rain.

Now I feel like staining my wooden floors too, yours are so lovely. What a gift to have a cardinal build a nest at your window. You will be greeted with birdsong in the mornings very soon. And the almond is so pretty:)
