Here is how it looked last week
The wishing well needs a coat of paint. Or three
Because the person that "edged" this wouldn't listen to me about how to do it
I have this to contend with.
All. Summer. Long.
I think I have a solution this year.
I got these tomatoes from the Horticulture class at school.
They are behind the swing in the fairy garden because they grow great there
I planted 3 lilac bushes against the fence last year
but the boys "weeded" two of them.
You can see the small left over one in the top right of the picture.
Eventually I will have to find a different spot for the tomatoes
because I have different plans for this spot
This chair needs a new coat of paint
In fact I have a lot of things that need a new
coat of paint this year,
Like that bench, that stool, that little rocker..
I love chairs.
I got these chairs from my sister a couple of years ago.
They have been sitting in my garage waiting for me to get to them.
This year I promised them they would have to wait no more.
Now I just have to decide what they want to look like.
I really need to divide these this year and give some away
I have them in too many places
They and the lilies are taking over this flower bed
Remember that broken bird bath?
I painted it
Put some fairy houses in the top
because it no longer held water
Got a little ladder from the pet bird section at Wal-Mart
Painted the ladder...
And made another place for the fairies to live
If you look at the top middle of the picture
You will see where the butterfly bush now lives.
I started on the stool but when I went to Home Depot to get a new seat,
they don't carry them anymore.
At least not at the Home Depot I was at.
They do carry them at the other one, but I was tired of shopping
so I will get it next time I am out that way
Then I will paint it red and put a pot of white flowers on it
and put it in the fairy garden to add height
Also first coat of paint
This bench is too wobbley to sit on anymore. I really need to repalce the wood because the
arms and legs are still good, but not this year.
This year it will get a coat of paint and then
sit next to the path under the second tree
and hold 3 pots of herbs.
It started raining so everything is waiting for the finishing coat of paint and sealer
I thought I had a picture of the hummingbird vine, but I guess I don't. It is now residing
on the other side of the path from the pond so that it can climb up the arch.
I still want to get some Wisteria, but I think I will put it over by the wishing well.
And that is what we did this week so far.
