Another sunny day here in Iowa

Today I got another wall painted in the beadboard room. Just 3 more and then I can put the second coat on. Wow does it suck!

I got my beautiful yellowish-orangish-red flowered hanging plant up on the kitchen porch today.
What do you think?

I forgot to pull out the tag saying what it was. I'll have to try to remember to do that next time I water it.

I also wanted to show off the cute little garden accessory my mother-in-law bought me. It's called a garden bell. It's made of terra cotta and you dip it into a bucket, put your finger over the opening on the top.
.
Then move it over your plant, lift your finger, and the water comes out the holes in the bottom.
.
It's a Victorian version of the garden hose I guess. I haven't actually used it yet, but to steal my future sister-in-laws saying "It's just the cutest thing ever." I can't seem to come up with a good name for him though. Any suggestions?

I love it! I've never seen one of those before. My sister would love to have one of these, now I know what to get her for her birthday.

I have no idea why, but seeing that turtle the name Beauregard popped into my brain. :) Sorry...know you were probably expecting something like Yurtle or Tiny but I just went with the first thing I thought of.

How about Greenie? Love the hanging basket on the porch- nice contrast against the wood behind it.

I think the name "Horace" seems to fit your turtle

How about purty turty? When my son was little, he had a stuffed toy turtle and that was its name.
