Whew....well....my husband keeps telling me that gardening will keep us young...I keep telling him that gardening is going to kill us.....we just have too many flower beds, too many weeds, and too much watering...a condo looks pretty darn good about now! Today...I spread 15 bags of mulch in our front flower beds...and it was hot....luckily...there's not too much weeding in the front, but the side and back yard is another story.
I started at 9 am and finished at 3. I was so dirty that I was tempted to spray myself off with the hose before coming into the house to shower...but the front is done now.
I used to plant impatients all along the walkway and the other side of the front...but by August...they
always started to wimp out on me....looking straggly, frail...that I decided not to plant any more and just go with the mulch and hostas....so glad I did!
A quick little applique that I did earlier this week. Design was taken from Rebekah Smith's book. I
needed a little something for my little round table....I haven't done applique in years...and I quite enjoyed it!
Bright and early tomorrow morning, my hooking friends and I are heading down to the Western Reserve Hook In in Chagrin Falls, OH....I am beyond excited!!! It's such a great time with just the best vendors...plus...I get to see so many of my Ohio friends!! I feel so fortunate that we were able to get in, because there's always a waiting list....Have a great weekend...I'll post pictures of the hook when I get back!!
