rose of sharon

It has been so hot and humid this year for far too long with very little rain.  We spend most of our time watering to keep everything alive instead of pulling weeds and we can sure tell it. The weeds seem to keep growing no matter what!!!

Rose Lily Oriental Lily






Last week Mom, I and our friend Lynn went to the UT Summer Celebration in Jackson, TN. After having a blast there we visited 2 nurseries in the area. The rose lily which is an oriental lily I found at Morris Nurseries.  It was blooming the pink bloom when I bought it and the white one opened up this week and is turning a lighter pink.  It is gorgeous!!!!!  What a steal at $5!

Weekend Project



I had seen something similar on Pinterest a couple of years ago so I started buying glass floats whenever I caught them on clearance.  I finally thought I would have enough and got started.  The first attempt was great until I turned it right side up and all the floats moved since they were not as tightly packed as I thought. Second attempt was better since I used wire to keep them in place and then wire across the bottom to keep them all in place. Put a flower pot in the bottom chained it to the tree and bench and I was done!!!

New Life for Bella's Bench


Butterfly Bench


Old Life - Red/Yellow


New Life - Purple/Pink

A few years ago Jennifer gave me this bench for Mother's Day I wanted for Bella.  It was looking kind of ratty so Bella thought it needed a pink and purple makeover!   We thought it turned out great as the pink is a glitter pink and that made her day!!!
