A very happy birthday to Andy Paulson! :D


I love a good thunderstorm myself. It is just the beginning of the rainy season here in Florida. Yesterday I delighted in some afternoon thundershowers...nothing but the sound of the rain.

Happy birthday Andy! What kind of cake are you having?


Happy Birthday Andy Paulson!!!

Your garden looks gorgeous. A very lovely place to be.

Happy Birthday, Andy!!


What did you have to eat, it looks good. I want to say I am always moved when I see your pictures. The pictures give me peace, they are so beautiful and somewhat calming to see a house and everyday tasks unbelievable. Happy Birthday to Andy.

WHAT?? (that was in Shawn's voice ;-) Happy Birthday, Andy ~ you rock!

I wish I could live in your backyard ~ so peaceful & pretty!!


Happy birthday to Andy! I just love how your backyard is a complete extension to the inside of your home. An outside living room. Just awesome. You create a very lovely vibe in your home and writing. I think you are just awesome ; )


Ah, your blog always adds some joy to my day. Curious as to what that ground covering is. Pea gravel? And do you find your lovely pooch tends to kick it into the grass? We're looking for something to put between our sliding glass door and where our grass starts but worried our Golden will kick it all over the yard. Lovely photos!
