French Fries and Katydid

About a week ago my blogging friend Katydid over at Katydids Kountry Life wrote a post called "I've Been Framed".   She showed a creative way of using a wooden frame.  I thought I would show what I did using an old dresser mirror frame. 
I bought the frame and mirror at an estate sale for $7.  I removed the mirror and hung the frame in my entry way.  In the middle I hung my favorite saying...

Every spring my daughter will come to the house and say "Mom, you have french fries growing on your house"!!

The french fries are actually seed pods from our maple tree.  They fall this time of year and get caught in the screen on the guttering.  Now I need to get out the ladder and pull all those french fries out. 

The bridal wreath spirea has started blooming this week.

And the fronds from my Cinnamon Fern are starting to open.  This plant will be 3 foot tall and 3 foot wide by the end of the summer.  

This is the first little frog I have seen this year.  He decided to rest on the rim of a pot of hostas. 

Until next time,

I love what you did with the mirror frame Kathy! And thanks for mentioning my blog. We have those "french fries" all over our place too. It seems like there are more than we have ever had before.
I sure hope we start getting more rain. I don't like this drought one bit!
