I took this picture last June while we were driving through Onaway, a tiny town of about 1000 people. Imagine my surprise when I saw the same sculpture in the Free Press Sunday.
Sunday morning we stained the deck. DH rolled the stain on after I cut in along all the edges. Even though the deck is prettty big, it does not take long to do this --about 1.5 hours. This is the first year it has been done so early. Usually I have all my plants on it and about July DH decides to do it, so we have to haul everything off and then back on. It's always such a pain to do that, so I am very glad it's done now.
After work today, I sat down to read the issue of Birds and Blooms that came in the mail. The deck looks so nice I almost don't want to put anything one it!
I was looking for the acorn. Do any of you who get this magazine try to find the acron?
I have been getting this magazine for years and have never looked for it. Last month while driving to the upper penninsula, I had 4 hours to kill, so I started going page by page looking through the back issues I brought along. I was just thrilled the first time I found it!
Now I'm hooked. Yes, I did find it in the current issue. If you can't find it, just ask me in the comments and I will give you a clue where to look.
