Good morning Folks ~ I hope all of you where the temps are cooling down are enjoying the fall season. It is ‘still’ miserable here. Yesterday and this morning the humidity was so heavy, I could only work outside for an hour. I didn’t check yesterday but did today to see about the humidity and this morning it was 86%. After an hour I had had enough. We had thunderstorms yesterday afternoon with very heavy rains. More rain is expected through Friday. Cooler weather is expected in November.
I took some pics this morning. The little weathered sign is to the left of the gate in the following picture.
This is looking through the gate into front patio area. The wall with the flower and stems is the east wall to my little creative space on the inside.
This is taken from inside looking back at the gate.
While I was out there I smelled a wonderful rose scent and lo and behold the bloom on Rose de Rescht had opened. I just love this rose. Thanks again Deb & Charles.
Next are blooms from the Queen Crepe that is on the east side of cottage. This is it’s second blooming this year. There are three clusters of blooms right now.
Next is my revamping project. I laid this little heart patio the beginning of this year. It soon became weed-laden between cracks and all around. I bought some weed barrier cloth this summer for half price from Big Lots but it was too hot and humid to work on this project then. After making the little picket fence section last week, I wanted to tackle this project.
I moved the marble pieces onto the roofing material patio. Weeded and leveled yesterday morning.
This is how it looks now. I still need to tweak it a bit. I want to put the weed cloth under the birdbath too. Or I may move birdbath, haven’t decided yet. It was too humid and miserable to think that far, much less do it this morning.
That’s it for now.
