So, this week was a swing week! I shopped for paint. Confession: The deciding factor for any paint choice is the name of its color. Makes sense to me. This lovely shade of green is called Leaf Rise. Very appropriate I think. I masked the chain and hardware, spread cardboard underneath, gave it a good scrubdown with vinegar and water, and let it dry in the first sunshine we had in several days. Then I sprayed Leaf Rise on every nook and cranny. And did it again. The best admiration of all that work will be swinging and enjoying the sunrise in the mornings.
I grew up in a house with a front porch swing. We spent many happy times in that swing. There were rose bushes at one end of the porch and cape jasmine at the other end. Don't you think I need to add some fragrance to this scene? That will be my next project.
