Some hot pink, purple-soled rubber shoes to walk around the garden when there's a thick coat of dew. I can't believe how comfy they are--right up there with my Crocs.
They came in handy bright and early Saturday morning when DH did his annual washing of the house.
He climbs up a ladder and washes the entire house with a sponge, water and bleach. To me this seems a dreadful job. I bought him a power washer for Christmas with this specific task in mind. He chose not to use it. I guess he enjoys doing this job manually. Live it up, Baby!
I followed behind on the deck to clean the windows before they dried with water spots.
I put my new shoes on, grabbed my rubber gloves, my toothbrush and my bucket of bleach water and went out. As soon as I got outside I made an interesting discovery.
Everything matched! The rubber gloves and toothbrush were almost the exact hot pink color.
Now some of you may be wondering what the toothbrush is for. Well, I have found it the easiest way to clean inside these windows around the metal apparatus. The bleach kills any bits of mold that may be there. It's really a pretty easy task. I did two sets of windows and the sliding door on the deck in less than half an hour.

I am so glad you stopped by to visit my garden. I garden in lower northern Michigan (zone 5) in far less than ideal conditions. I have too many pine trees, too much shade, too many rocks, herds of hosta-munching deer and rabbits who think my lilly buds are gourmet appetizers. I am by no means an expert in horticulture or garden design--just an amateur with a shovel and a passion. My garden changes daily during the summer and I will be updating frequently.
During the winter months, I blog about my favorite cold-weather hobby--quilting and just my everyday musings.
I hope you enjoy your visit, and that you will come back soon.
