Friday Five - Scenes from Around the House

Last night, Foxy worked a little outside around the house.  So I snapped a few shots of things I love about the outside of my house.  Here we go...

1.  Welcome to my home.  I love having people over.

2.  Below the sign is my lion.  In my husband's hometown, a man would make these out of concrete.  They weigh a ton!  The creator of this was in his 80s or 90s when he made this one.  It was sitting in Father-in-Law's flower bed.  He let Foxy have it.  I do not give him a bow during the holidays or anything.  One time, though, Daughter and BFF colored him with sidewalk chalk.

3.  Something I don't have a picture of, but will later this summer is a deck.  We are going to put a big porch on the front of our house.  Lion will be moved, but probably to just on the deck.  That will be determined at a later date.

4.  I forget were this well pump came from, but I plan to use Rustoleum on it, but not sure what color.  This is going to be our no-fuss flower bed.  I was thinking red, like my front door, but not sure.  Any suggestions?

5.  The last scene is just my imagination:  In this picture above, I want a no-fuss floweresque bed.  I have bushes on either end of the spectrum, and I have a three-piece stone alligator that I love and want to keep there.   I hate geraniums, so that will not be a flower of choice.  Not sure what though.  Maybe some mums.  I love them.

So that's some of my favorite things about the front of my house.  What do you like about your house?


  1. Hi! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm from northeast Ohio, right on the edge of the snow belt, Wooster. I think red would be a great color for your water pump.
