My Almost Garden
We are surrounded by GRAY around my house. I have a talented neighbor who has changed her gray into a lush looking green by all the gardening she has done with her rock.
...I have been inspired. I have attempted to make a "garden" on my gray rock. Just like my "quilting"...I am hacking my way through a "garden".
But...what I am most proud of is all the things I have made to start my "garden" efforts....
I actually built the white bench you see pictured with the white table. Another pilot made that table for me and a guy at church made the other bench that sits with my table. I painted it all white because I have a problem with NOT painting things white. But...just to restate...I BUILT the other white bench. Kinda excited about that...
And guess what else??? I BUILT the cedar planters that hold my NEW SHRUBS....there are a total of 3 cedar planters...one is not in the picture but it is just as adorable as the other 2....oh and I built the white planter TOO!!!
And the sawhorse table in the top picture...I want to be more excited about that table but I am not as happy as I want to be about how it turned out. I may be guilty of being a super impatient builder....so I kind of IGNORE mistakes and move on....which sometimes works in knitting....but not effective in building. But...there is a place in my heart for my first SUPER imperfect table. I think there is another table in my future.
****planter box on imperfect table...I MADE IT TOO!!
**** Burlap bunting....ME TOO!!! That needs to come down, but we had a little party on the 3rd...but I want to live with it up but then it does not feel special when I put it up...what to do??
p.s I made that lemonade stand you see in the background...that was super fun and has helped sell LOTS of cookies. And for our little party it served as a drink stand.
