Today we are highlighting Aunt Ruth's beautiful garden and patio, accompanied by her very own 'model'!
While you coastal and overseas readers enjoy the overcast days, here in the desert we are rocking the temperature gauge at 90F+. Doing my watering early these days, and making it through about 1/2 of it in the morning and finishing up in the afternoon when it is cooler.
The problem is that it got so hot so fast that the ground is really parched and drinks up the water, so you really have to spend time soaking and letting the plants drink.
Thought I'd share our first cutting of rhubarb (which was EXTREMELY yummy by the way), mixed in with some fresh strawberries.
You are going to want to make several of these, they are so darling! They are selling them at decorator shops, so they are very hot right now. These instructions include both a no-sew version as well as the sewn version (we recommend sewing it for lastibility!)
- 1/2 yard of fleece in the main flower color, plus some coordinating green and yellow scraps for the center and leaves
- pinking shears and scissors
- hot glue gun(for no-sew version)
- matching thread
- sewing machine
