"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Rogers 1931-2005

Flat Cat Tires

I was talking to Bill the other day about how our indoor plants look rough and wondered what I was doing wrong.  I discovered that I need not worry anymore...
hmm...kitty sleeping in the wild?!

The garden is beginning to green up!  Mint sneaking through a lower level of tire and the chives.

One more photo of kitty ever so tired from sleeping all day!


And finally I am continuing my efforts of painting the tires~
maybe I will finish next year!  If only people messed up paint orders more
often at Lowe's, Walmart, or Home Depot~then I could buy marked down paint!!

I guess cats can and do sleep anywhere.

Those painted tires look very nice and artistic. It is funny how the light paint shows the details.

Hi - haven't posted in a long time but really enjoy your blog. About the 2nds on paint...do you have a Habitat for Humanity Re-store close? the one near me has paint. SJ in Vancouver BC Canada

Dizzy-that's the truth!

PP-The tires look interesting for sure. Of course, the tire garden is not for everyone!

SJ-yes, we have a habitat for humanity. I honestly have used it for ceiling light. I can't make myself buy paint from there as I am only using it for tires. I want the paint from there to be for someone's home. For tires, steady pace and patience for the farm!

I hope you come across some more discounted paint! You'll have to share the "bigger picture" of the gardens.

Gayle- I will. I have in the past usually when I begin the season, and one mid season, to show the green jungle!!
