It is low 70’s, very comfortable weather down here. Tonight it is supposed to get down to low 50’s, which will be nice.
I mowed yesterday morning, and repotted two gardenia shrubs that I got as little rooted cuttings from Tom at 7th Street Cottage last year. They needed to be in larger pots with some good potting soil. They are sitting in the caravan garden area.
I’ve got to take some cuttings of roses to pot up and hope they will root. I’ve got seeds to plant too. It is really wonderful to work in the gardens these days. I’m waiting for my Mexican Sunflowers to bloom. I see them in bloom all over the neighborhood, maybe mine are just late bloomers. They are about 10’ tall, and I grew them from cuttings this year.
Last week I saw a bit of needlework that really captured me. It was of a tree, which you can see here. I found out from Suz the creator of these trees that they were tatted, not with a shuttle, but with tatting needles, which I had never heard of. I watched a little you tube video and became inspired to learn this art. I found the needles on line at Walmart, and ordered them. No shipping charge, since I will just pick them up from our store here after they’ve received them.
Learning new things is good for us, no matter how old or young we are.
