It was a beautiful spring day in North Iowa and I made good use of it working outside. Both Becky and Ellen texted that they were moving their succulents outside – my “day” has always been Mothers Day and I will probably stick to that and clean up the rocks tomorrow in readiness for that long awaited day.
Some of the lilies are coming up but not many – and not much of anything else is even sprouting or showing green.
Sad, isn’t it?
This is a summer experiment in the works – a root system upside down in a planter which still needs rocks to secure it upright.
I’m going to plant a vine in this pot and let it climb up the root – if it’s successful it might not even be pretty but I had to try.
Interesting, isn’t it? Haha! Maybe only in the eyes of the beholder?
No time to sew these days but I just picked up several quilts from the quilter and I have binding to do at night. I will post as I finish. I am so tempted to make a Layer By Layer just using my leftover strips instead of a layer cake.
As I was working in the yard today I cleaned off Sally’s grave marker. Sally was my first dog living here on the farm and when she died I had a large box to bury her in. Jenny was just a little girl and as she stood beside the grave with her mom, she said “Say it, Mom”. Say what, Jenny? “Say it Mom – say the pledge.” THE PLEDGE? Yup – we said the Pledge of Allegiance by Sally’s grave. So sweet.
