I took my grapevine wreath and the lavender out on the deck to work on it. I wanted to work in the cool of the house but realized that it would have made too much of a mess.. and boy I was right, there is lavender everywhere. But it sure does smell good! Thank you to Ginger from Bates Lavender Farm across the road from us. :-)
Dayle thought I should use the copper wire we got to wire all the bunches onto the wreath.. but as a lifelong crafter I told him that the best way to attach them would be a hot glue gun. We got my glue gun plugged in and I began attaching them that way and it worked a charm.
But could we find the extra glue sticks? Of course not.
Dayle had to get a Covid-19 test today because he has surgery next week to have the other half of his thyroid removed. He is picking up some extra hot glue refills on his way home. Meanwhile I was making more bunches, wrapping them with copper wire.
It's 85 degrees today! After working for a while I headed into the AC cooled house. We'll work on this later when it cools down.
A wide angle shot of my workshop. :-)
Caleb brought our 2nd rocking chair to put by mine so both of us can rock and watch the fish and birds side by side.
Dayle snapped this photo of one of the free Dahlias that we got from Sue at the bottom of our road. Isn't it gorgeous?
I took my selfie stick out to get a photo of the sunflower buds and tried this higher shot of the pond.
Our first Rose of Sharon bush to bloom. Happy happy joy joy.
Rose of Sharon (Hibiscus syriacus) and Chinese hibiscus (Hibiscus rosa-sinensis) are cousins.
The sunflower bud, I thought it would be more open but it's not opening yet.
The ROS next to the garden shed deck.
I'm looking forward to the shiny new blue metal roofs for the shed and garage/barn. :-)
Mocha wanted to say farewell to you and wish you a wonderful weekend. :-)
I hope you're faring well and staying safe. Please keep my dear husband in your good thoughts next week. Needless to say I'm worried about it all. I will keep you in the loop.
((hugs)), Teresa :-)
