In fact, I spent a good two hours outside moving plants before the rain started to fall. When the first drops hit me, I quickly parked the wheelbarrow against the deck lattice and came inside to take a refreshing shower.
While in the shower I remembered my Felco pruners.....what did I do with them?
Dang! I left them on the ground.
There is no way I will leave them out there in the rain. As much as I hated to go out and get wet again, I had to grab my fluffy blue robe and head out to fetch the best pruners I have ever owned.
I wonder what the neighbors think seeing me in my robe at 2:00 p.m. Actually after living here for 21 years, they are probably used to it!
I knew it was going to rain, so I moved this heuchra to the entrance to this path. I just love it when I move plants just before it rains so I don't have to haul out the hose.
The heuchra used to be a couple of feet back and this year they grew too large for that space. Here is this area a few days ago when I decided the heuchra needed to be moved. Can you see them back by the third paver?
I removed a big chunk of the creeping phlox from each side and planted the heuchra. I like it so much better now. I also dug out the black-eyed Susans you see on the right side. I don't like them in that spot.
I woke up shortly after 4:00 a.m. today and decided to get up and work on my autumn leaf table runner.
The top was done at 5:39 a.m. I know it sounds insane to many of you, but I love mornings. I especially love them on the weekend when I don't have to get ready for work.
By 7:00 a.m. I had the runner completely done and on the table.
I think it turned out nice.
I also made two batches of sugar cookies which are sitting in the refrigerator waiting until I feel like rolling out the dough and cutting circles.
I recently ripped this pic out of a magazine
and I want to decorate sugar cookies to look like these. I am not that good at decorating cookies, but these look easy. We shall see. If they turn out, you will see a picture. :)
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
