Summer is here and there are so many wonderful muses.
It delights my heart to be in the garden areas that are
dreamily growing. As many of you know it's A LOT
of work to create these areas of beauty!
I've been digging, moving rocks, pulling weeds,
planning, planting and reading and watering!
Here are a few of my new friends~
Tutti Fruit Yarrow
I thought the color was so beautiful, soft and peachy.
I just HAD to have her! And there was only one.
Other lovelies waiting their turn for a new home~
If you're familiar with this old fashioned beauty,
you know that her fragrance fills the air with a heavenly, sweet aroma!
Oh....Those pink blossoms.. and her bright green foliage!
Much of the work is in camp.
Our gypsy camp is not deep in the forest, but there are tall Pinon
and Juniper trees that line the paths and surround some of the
enchanting hide- a -ways that await us when we need a little
get-away. And we're planting bushes and trees.
We have OH so much work to do!
But it's slowly being transformed.
In a few weeks, I will be ready to reveal the terraced, rock garden.
But..... the refreshing comes from slowing down and knowing that
that's our sacred place for communing with God, each other and nature.
While resting in the hammock,
I heard the sweetest little chitterings of birds.
And then I saw the tiny creatures flitting about
through the branches looking for a snack.
Pine Siskins I believe.
It was these little birds that inspired the tiny garden.
And so, equipped with petunias, lobelia,
a pewter dish, thrifted cake plate, bird seed,
two potted hens, a small wheel barrow and watering can,
I headed toward the chosen spot.
I dug it up with and mixed a little garden soil in.
I planted the flowers and settled all of the pieces in their places.
Filled the containers and added some rocks and mulch.
And now they have a place to stop and get a drink and grab a bite
during their travels.
And the faeries are welcome too! ;)
I should make a sign.
I believe I will.
What about your projects...gardens or plans..
I love to hear of them!
I hope you have a wonderful 4th of July weekend.
I'm so thankful for our forefathers and those that
still serve today to protect our country and freedoms.
Blessings to you and thank you, as always
for coming by!
