Update: I got home from work today and it was 74 degrees outside. A beautiful day to finish painting the allium. Now it's ready when I am. I wish I had some orange spray paint. TWT mentioned that they might look neat for a Halloween centerpiece. I will have to remember that for next year.
While I had the can of black spray out, I painted some of the allium skeletons and the branches that were out on the woodland table. The branches had been sitting outside all summer and needed a fresh coat. I am sure the allium heads will be finding their way on to the dining table in different centerpieces during the winter. I already have them in mind for a black/peach table.
I am so glad you stopped by to visit my garden. I garden in lower northern Michigan (zone 5) in far less than ideal conditions. I have too many pine trees, too much shade, too many rocks, herds of hosta-munching deer and rabbits who think my lilly buds are gourmet appetizers. I am by no means an expert in horticulture or garden design--just an amateur with a shovel and a passion. My garden changes daily during the summer and I will be updating frequently.
During the winter months, I blog about my favorite cold-weather hobby--quilting and just my everyday musings.
I hope you enjoy your visit, and that you will come back soon.
