Replacing screens etc;

*Replacing Screens
Our 45 years old Screen Doors needed replacing screens. My husband wished to replace the screen made of "polypropylen" which has better view of outside from inside than the cheaper one.  We can buy it at the DIY-shop.  He learned that professional ask us price 5 times more for the job compared to the cheaper screen. 
Old ones had screens made of  "vinyl chloride" sure had durability;  the staff at the shop said that the one we bought has the quality only last 5 years or more.  But you can see the differences of the view with new one.  So sorry not from the same window.
Taking off the screen and he cleaned the frame.
packing (or rubber to set the screen) and the little roller like  tool.

*Critters and flowers *
I  found the butterflies flying around the flower. It was hard to take video p:-)    The white orchid was from the Exhibition at the city park which I haven't  posted. I'll try posting other beauties later. 

The first Grey heron was staning in front of the wall of a factory thinking where to fly off :-)  The ones in the second frame was from the usual nearby river. 

 Wishing you will have a wonderful coming new week.
I really appreciate your sweet visits despite my absence!!!
Hope to see you soon;

  1. Lovely post with so many fine photos. My favorite is the gray heron.

  2. Changing screens, we'll leave to our husbands, eh? The butterflies are beautiful - they are so quick, I can imagine it would be hard to take a video of them! Like how you dress up your photo! Thanking you from All Seasons and wishing you a great week!

  3. I am impressed! We would have just called a company to do it! Looks great! Have a great week!

  4. Your heron is so handsome - I don't know if he is a male or not:) lovely flowers and butterflies as well. Enjoy your day Miyako!

  5. The new screens look great, I imagine you can appreciate the view a lot better now.
    Thank you for bringing you beautiful collages to Mosaic Monday this week, they always brighten my day.

  6. Great that your hubby could change the screens himself. Love the flowers and butterflies. The grey heron is a beauty! Happy Monday!

  7. I love pretty flowers and little butterflies! And you took wonderful photos of the heron! Enjoy your week sweet lady! Hugs!

  8. Figuring out how to do things oneself saves lots of money, doesn't it? Beautiful butterflies and heron photos. Have a good week!

  9. Miyako - the pictures of the butterflies on the flowers are charming. I also need to learn your techniques for displaying your collages within your posts - so stylish!

  10. The view with new screen looks great! That reminds me that we need to clean our screens...and windows..and's endless, isn't it? :-)
    Such cute butterflies. The white orchid is gorgeous! I look forward to seeing more from the exhibition. And it's always lovely to see herons :-)
    Happy July, Miyako san! Can you believe it's already July? Have a wonderful new week! xo

  11. Great summery photos! They are nice to see on my frosty winter day!

  12. Dearest Miyako,
    You deserve a compliment for your always artistic presentation of photos!
    That is a true gift!!!
    Your new screen is much more appealing for a 'clear' view without the course woven screen obstructing it.
    You are lucky with a handy man who can do this himself; saves a lot of money.
    Isn't it sad that they are selling things that only last 5 years? They should be considering more the pollution it causes for the environment for having to trash it every 5 years. But it is all about money... Durability and quality nowadays is not within our reach!
    Love your butterfly photos and also the beautiful white orchids.
    Those Great Blue Heron photos are all lovely.
    Thanks for the timely 4th of July wishes. We did have a lovely day spent at the home of our best friends. They are our extended family. LOTS of food and happy time together.

  13. Miyako Sama!
    It was loved the Flowers also Butterflies Enjoy your day.

  14. What gorgeous herons and orchids! The butterflies look so dainty.
    Have a wonderful Wednesday :)

  15. Miyako, I didn't know there were different screens available. Sure does make a difference. You take beautiful photographs of the herons. Have a wonderful week.

  16. Those new screens made a big difference! Beautiful herons and butterflies!

  17. Hello Miyako!:) Kudos to your hubby for doing such a good job with your new screen! Your Heron shot is fantastic, and the butterflies and orchids are really beautiful. Nice share, and beautifully presented, as usual. Enjoy your weekend dear Miyako.:)

  18. Hello Miyako, it is wonderful that your hubby was able to do the screen repair. It looks very nice. I love the pretty butterflies and flowers. The orchid is beautiful. Great captures of the heron. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend!

  19. Hello Miyako, A very nice post here! Great photos! I love the Grey heron shot! Thanks for sharing and have a good weekend!

  20. I did the same job a few weeks ago with a screen door because it had been damaged in the winter by large blocks of ice and snow, so the screen was split open. The roller tool is very useful. I am glad I fixed it because now there are many mosquitoes and we need the screens to keep them out of the house!

  21. I love the shot of the butterflies on the daisies. The heron is lovely. I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

  22. Hello Miyako! There is a big difference in screens in your photos. Much better view now...Love the wildlife you find.....Michelle

  23. As always, thanks so much for joining us with your wonderful photos this week at I'd Rather B Birdin'. It's always appreciated and a pleasure to witness first hand with your blog.

    Yes, the new screen is quite an improvement in viewing. Love the heron.

  24. That is quite the task to have completed. I really need to replace some screens too. Beautiful images of the birds and blooms. Thanks so much for joining Friday's Hunt. Have a great rest of the week!

  25. Your flower, bird, and butterfly pictures are always so beautiful. I love the little yellow and white flowers in your butterfly photos. We have those in our yard sometimes, too.

    Have a beautiful weekend. :)
