Flowering Today

I took pictures of what we have flowering in the garden at the moment.  Since we have a freeze warning out for tonight and it is supposed to get down to 28 we probably won't have any flowering tomorrow!

Solar Lights & Peony Support Rings

Peony Support Rings Mom Made Yesterday

Solar Lights Made from Ceiling Fan Globes

Solar Lights Hanging in the Garden

First off the peony support rings - we needed a lot of them and couldn't believe how much it was going to cost.  Mom made 21 yesterday and is making more today from flexible wire from Lowe's and the straight wire from Dooley.

The solar lights I starting making in Feb and finished enough to hang in the garden.  They look so good hanging on the iron tree I picked up at the Nashville Lawn & Garden Show in February.
All the globes came from Goodwill and the wire was stuff we had left over from years ago.  The solar lights I caught on clearance at Marshalls and Walmart.  This has got to be the cheapest project I've ever done!
