DIRTY DISHES IN THE GARDEN!
Let's take a peek at what's happening in the garden this week!
It was time to get the "Dirty Dishes" fountain out of the shed. This fountain was inspired by my Grandma, who would wash her dishes in one of those old enamel bowls with the red rim.
Here's a close-up. I pulled the tube way up so that you can see the stream of water. I love to hear the water tinkling as I work over there in the "secret garden".
There are all kinds of columbine blooming right now. I have no idea where this one came from, because I surely didn't plant it. I think a bird must have made a "deposit"!
These are also volunteers. I love it when this happens!
These blue columbines are from my sister, and they're doing really well.
I wasn't sure this white clematis was going to make it, but it's got a good hold of the windmill this year!
Beautiful, isn't it?
And after a hard day of gardening, this is a great spot to take a nap! This vintage chaise lounge, with the barkcloth cushion, was a garage sale find last year, for $5.
It's also a great spot to read some of my favorite gardening magazines. And then take another nap!
