{ Friday Foto Friends #33 }

I've got LOTS of pics to share today!
Feel free to scroll through at your leisure, 
or REALLY, REALLY fast.....LOL

Once you get to know me better, you'll discover that I adore all things rusty and old.  
I'm thinking I like it even more the older and rustier I get.....ha! ha!

My precious Mamaw gave me this old wheelbarrow and also the wheels in the next picture.
And, in case you didn't know, I also have quite an obsession with owlies!

The ancient galvanized watering cans came from my father-in-law.  
The old dishpan was a gift from a lady I used to work with.

This planter is made out of an old garden gate.
Pappy and I got it on our 25th wedding anniversary trip to Sullivan's Island, SC.
Yes, it's rusty, too!
Funny little story.....
when we first purchased it, my Momma said, "you're going to paint it, aren't you".
Uh, no.....
that would just ruin it, Mom!

A "garnet" colored lily.
Garnet is my birthstone.

My humongous succulents.

I  the star Pappy put on our carport.
It was an after-Mother's Day, Mother's Day gift....LOL

For the last 2 years our hydrangeas didn't bloom because of a freeze in late spring, but lookie at what we got this year.....

Pappy picked these out of our little garden plot yesterday!
I homegrown maters!

And, last.....
but definitely not least.....
this is one of the many cats who live where we get our drinking water.  I'm pretty sure this one was about to deliver at any minute!  Wish you could see the actual size of her belly.  She was miserable.

So, that's it for today.
HOPE you were able to stick with me 'till the end!

PLEASE link up your photos below.....
and have an awesome weekend.
