New Window

Last week I had a window replaced in my sunroom. It's the last big project I had on my list. It feels so great to them finished. Of course, there is still the small project list.

The center pane was rotting because of rain getting in.  
 Here they have the outside trim taken off.
Once they had the window out, it only took them about 10 minutes to get the new one into place. Good thing the snow hadn't started flying yet.

 They did a fabulous job on finishing the window. They matched the stain perfectly. The trim came off great and they were able to put it back up. You would never know that the picture below is the after shot. I didn't have to do a single touchup.
Instead of putting wood trim back on the outside, they put up vinyl. Yay, less maintenance for me!!

Botanical Center

Recently I was at the Botanical Center for some meetings and took a tour during lunch. It's been several years since I'd been there. There weren't a lot of plants blooming, but it was beautiful anyway.
Great picture of the koy pond with the dome reflection.

They had pumpkins out for fall but no mums yet.  I've heard that the poinsettia decorations at Christmas time are great, so I might have to make another trip.
