Opening day for the weekend and launch day for Paint Party Friday. Special thanks to Eva and Kristin for making this day "EXTRA" special :)
This weeks art is a page out of my garden journal...
water color pencils and ink ..
At first I wasn't liking it at all but after adding the ink it's starting to grow on me.
Kinda like my flower garden in front is growing on me. My husband decided he thought the bed would would great done in only purples and yellows..... I love a wilder mixed up cottage style garden. He likes it more tailored and defined. I tried to reach a happy medium ...but I'm really missing the reds and blues. Maybe after it's filled out more.
The Bee Balm is about to bloom and then maybe I'll like it more. The empty spaces actually do have plants but they are new perennials that won't do much this year. I think I'm going to top off the mulch with some dark brown or black mulch and I think it will look better.
I untied the branch to the storm damaged Rose of Sharon and they are still hanging down too far. Will tie them back up today and hope for the best. Worst case I'll have to prune heavily this fall.
"Fuzz" has flown the coop :) He was ready and so was I ...taking care of a bird at work was becoming a real challenge. He didn't want to stay in his box at all. He sat on the ladder for about 15 minutes...just looking around and taking things in and then off he flew to join his family in the Plum tree. Lot's of robin singing and joyful noises coming from that tree.
