Spring is here. But where is Picassa
PHOTO OF DIRT... See It??? Thanks to some glitch with Goggle, my photos are not coming through.
Yes, this is a pile of weeds in dirt.. Once had some wood around it that rotted.. Last year I did not have time to corral Ralph and work on the Veggie spot, not garden, but spot.. and besides I goofed and put it over the septic. Not a major issue, unless, you have to drain it..
So yesterday, both of us home at the same time. Ralph built the boxes with screening on the bottom to keep out the gophers, we cleared a new area, and a partly completed with 2 places to plant..
We had found the picket fencing at a garage sale and it will cover the area that faces the street, and leave the back section open for me to plant, and oh, yes, weed.. If you look close we have chicken wire on the top, because this is not a wonderful new cat box..
I love silly flamingos, just because some people hate these plastic birds,,, I get a laugh out of them.. The bag of wood chips only covered this small area.
Took a hot shower and relaxed in from of the T.V. last night. This morning I can hardly walk, even the dog is moving slow... Thankfully, I had planned a day in the studio to work on the Challenge Quilt... but even that means moving the body..I could say, I need to do this more often.. and maybe I will not hurt so much... but today, I am passing on that chore. Enjoy the sun!
I am a mixed media fiber/quilt artist who loves to work with gourds,and jewelry. I am easily distracted with the next project, and have many going at one time. I have been teaching Fabric Dyeing and Beginning gourd art for many years. I am blessed with my own home studio. We live in the rolling hills near Yosemite National Park, in central Calif. U.S.A. This is a place of Inspiration, Blue Skies and Great Friends. I volunteer with several organizations,and have memberships in P.E.O., Coarsegold Historical So., Sierra Art Trails, Madera Circle Gallery, Yosemite Western Artist, Timberline Gallery and Sierra Mountain Quilters. I teach at my home studio and at local quilt gatherings.
