I stole it, me the Pastor's mother, I confess!

At church I noticed a trash pile
my son the new pastor was cleaning
 and getting rid of old things....like old rusty wheelbarrows. 

....I drove away as if I had to get away quickly...you know before being caught!

I had it home and filled with flowers before anyone knew what had been done.
Before someone could point at me and say "you did it!"

There I confessed, I did it. I stole the wheelbarrow from the church...
church trash pile. It was me...the pastor's mother!

 ok with that off my chest...
I took some pictures of this lovely flowering something or other growing in my front yard.
Also my potting bench on the porch. I just married 2 pieces together to make it.
A picket fence panel and an old metal cabinet.
Joining in with
http://savvysouthernstyle.blogspot.com/ for Wow us Wednesday and with
for Rednesday with wonderful red goodness!
 And no I didn't feel the need to take the Christmas lights down...

 I've had to watch out for this guy who hides behind my climbing roses....he waits till just the right moments and then jumps out and me and tries to peck my feet. 
He has been successful on a few occasions....boy does it hurt. He isn't very nice, pretty to look at, but a little mean.

Have a wonderful 4th of July! And thank you to all our brave soldiers, men and women who have sacrificed so dearly for us. I'm grateful!

Oh my goodness....the church lady is a thief....!! I once found a piece of rebar at a construction site...I thought it was garbage...I mean it wasn't in anything....so I brought it home...until my husband made me feel guilty...and I walked it right back....don't do that to the wheelbarrow.....it will be our secret!!

Hi Debbie! Oh, you bad bad girl! :)
Well, at least you're repentant! :) I love the ole wheelbarrow and I would have done the same thing. Love your pretty place with all of your plants and flowers. Now that is a pretty rooster but he must be a little booger! :)
Have a wonderful 4th of July with your family.
Be a sweetie,

I am sure the Lord is loving the beauty in that wheelbarrow that you saved. Your pictures are wonderful. Your pecking rooster is why I am terrified of chickens!lol
Thanks for sharing.
