While I was gone, Hubby and Mayo the Wonder Dog worked in the garden. Son, Bryan arrived with girls in tow for Sunday dinner of taco salads, and we got him to run the tiller (yet again). This is the last time we are planting the garden - we've gotten washed out 3 times now. Maybe this one is the charm? Well, that and the straw bales I picked up at Ace Hardware to block the gully washers running amok!
I was all ready to plant the Gerbera daisies along the front of the garden bed closest to the house where we sit, too. So I got all my tools, got down on my knees, and all the while Mayo was going nuts jumping back and forth in the mulch close to the house, barking and dancing. When I looked up, stretched across the front steps of the porch was this thing.
You can run, but you can't hide! Not even in the tangle of cords to run the trimmer and blower! I guess I'll thing twice or three times even, before I reach my hand into a shadow now in the garden!
So what's a post without some sort of fiber picture? Here's one from a teacher who was at MQX this year, Sue Patten. I am not familiar with her work, but I sure do like her humor! Thread painting is not my thing either, but this one just made me laugh!
Today, I am planning on working on the trees piece. So next post should be lots of pictures of color!!
