Luckily, I mentioned this in front of my dad. He said he had one put away in the garage and he'd dig it out for us. As you'll see, it is in decent shape.
This project was one of those quick, get your art on, projects.
I only painted the top of the windmill. The rest will have to wait for another year. I'm happy with the quick spruce up. I smile every time I see the cheery turquoise, red and lavender color scheme. I smile even bigger because it looks so darned cute in our yard.
I painted "The Chicken Sisters" on the tail of the windmill. The Chicken Sisters is one of the ladies favorite books (and one of mine too). It is a cute little quirky kid's story. I recommend it as a great read to everyone.
I painted the windmill earlier in the summer. My youngest planted flowers under it. She planted some annuals she had picked out with some catmint.
As you can see, my daughter is a better gardener than me! Look at how great her plants are looking!
Here is the windmill with their little playhouse. My dad built them the playhouse a few years back. They've spent many afternoons having fun in their little hide away. I'd like to do a mini-cottage garden around their playhouse. I'll add it to that list...that long, long list.
As I always say...I've got the rest of my life!
