Windy and cool today. Sun dancing in and out of the clouds, never getting warm enough to take off that sweater. More lilies blooming, fruit is quietly growing and getting plump.
The wind blew down a large portion of our garden fence, so we are waiting for the winds to die down to fix it. We have learned the hard way that battling the wind as well as lifting a heavy fence does not mix. Such is the life of those who live with wind!
MAKE A GARDEN FLOWER POT CHAIR
While dumpster diving I found the cutest little chair. It needed a little repair but instead of fixing it so that it could be sat on, I made it into a darling flower pot holder...and you can, too!
What's more perfect for Memorial Day than a picnic, indoors (if bad weather) or out! Here's a cute idea for a patriotic drink that your guests will exclaim over!
You Will Need:
cute straws ( I found mine at the 99 cent store...they have a great variety including some hard plastic ones that twist into shapes)
Thread your strawberry on first, then the marshmellow and then the blackberry. It helps to use a metal skewer first to make a hole so that the straw slides through. Check the straw to make sure that the fruit pulp didn't get stuck inside. Fill your glass up with large ice cubes, which will hold up the straw, which will be heavy with the fruit.
Cook some hot dogs, have some chips and potato salad and a great time!
