Our mom has been washing windows.  Yes, she is one of the really nutty ones that LOVES to wash windows! She's thinks it's fun and rewarding and instant gratification kind of stuffs.   Yup, she's strange!
She has gotten into the Method brand products. Dexter's mom mentioned them once and mom bought one of the cleaners and she was sold. They smell wonderful and they work great.
The Method window cleaner smells like mint and every time mom sprays the window, she giggles thinking that she is washing windows with mouthwash!
Break time from windows and heading out to the vege garden~

Our tomatoes are still going strong!
A lot of you had concerns about our Heavenly Blue Morning Glory taking over our yard.  Morning glories are an annual flower here. The frost kills them back every year so they never get out of control in our area.  They do self sow but they're easy to remove if you don't  want them to grow.  Dad lets them go nutty in his vege garden.   The vine doesn't really shade the tomatoes until September and by then, we're overloaded with tomatoes and begging our neighbors to please come and take them!

Speaking of morning glories - what happened to our heavenly blue?  This one looks like she's having a hard time deciding which color she wants to be!

 And so does this hydrangea!

 Heading over to our new swan house, we see that dad and mom have been very busy.   The floor joists are in place and the deck has been started.  This weekend's plan is for the walls to go up. 

 Not far from the swan house is the grape vine~
These grapes are the sweetest ever but would we know that firsthand?  NOOOOOOOO - because our stingy mom won't let us try one - not even one! Can you even imagine?!

 Margaret and Penny are enjoying an apple that fell off the apple tree.  They are very happy girls~~

Back to the windows, mom!

So until next time..............

Love ya lots♥

shame horror - mom can't even remember the last time she cleaned our windows.....she cleans the glass door a lot though - something to do with 'snotty dog nose wipes' all of it - she says.

The swans are so lucky to get a new house.

Love Ruby & Penny

Gus said...

Are you having a timber raising for the swan House? If so, we will bring a dessert and help eat your beautiful tomatoes!

Great. Now our mom wants to try mint-scented window cleaner! :)
Penny and Margaret are so beautiful! It's sure nice that they got to enjoy an apple together!
One of our neighbors keeps giving our mom tomatoes. Mom and Dad LOVE them!
Your mom is right about the "no grapes for pups" thing. They're bad for us!

You had me laughing at this one. Morgan and Noah follow me when I clean windows and lick them after I finish. I'm sure they'd love mint flavored cleaner.

I should snap pictures of the morning glories that have taken over our yard. I could just stand in one spot most anywhere and aim, then turn slightly and snap another. They're everywhere thanks to our bird friends.

Millie and Walter said...

Most of our windows go down to doggie nose level so keeping them clean is impossible. We like the way the snart looks when the sun shines through them. BOL!!

Your peep is strange. My peep hides at the mention of any kind of washing or cleaning.

Tweedles -- that's me said...

The little house will be built for the swans? They will be so happy!
Mommy has a hard time washing windows- she said the look better dirty... ours are all smeared.
We never heard of that cleaning stuff- but it sounds wonderful (mommy says)

STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

Howdy Mates. Hehehe, our mum cleans windows too butt we like to slobber and put pawprints on the glass again as soon as we can. It keeps her busy! Love your garden too. It is so lovely. Hope your weekend is great. NO worries, and love, Stella and Rory

KB said...

Wow, can I have some of your tomatoes? They look incredible. We can't grow them here because the growing season is too short. Enjoy!!!!!

Oreo said...

Hey, Love the doggy bones, the veggies and the flowers. Tell your mom we have about 87 windows in our house if she wants to do more!!!

Hi, Mitch
Could you please ask your mum what type of tomato that is?

I think it might be a costoluto genovese. Or maybe a periforme abruzzo?
I've never seen a tomato like your one, but I have a book with photos.

What is it???

Oskar said...

Man you guys live in a magical place! Your mom person might be a little off over that whole window thing I think.

Nubbin wiggles,

Wyatt said...

What an interesting tomato. It almost looks like a gourd. Love all your pretty flowers too :D

Old Girl has comments/questions. {sigh}
She loves the hydrangeas and Method products and wonders how the window cleaner compares to Windex. (Does it do as good of a job?)
She also wonders if you will come wash our windows, too. :P
