I got this rug outside to take a picture. I love the scrappy background it makes it look old to me.
A little bit closer. I thought I was going to run out of background. I used everything I had that would work and I was worried..
But out of a bag that was tucked away I found this chunk of wool.
perfect! Now for the border. I have really enjoyed working on this rug and have a much smaller one for next one.
I prefer larger rugs and have the perfect place for this one between the dinning room and living room.
We are in dire need of rain. On my walk the farmer at the end of the dirt road his big field for his cows is all dry and burned. So sad.
But we have been watering so my gardens look pretty good this is an old fashion rose bush and smells heavenly.
My lavender is the best it's been in years this is just one of my patches. It is my favorite.
These are beach roses. I took some from a house my parents owned years ago it is invasive but husband keeps it in line and it smells lovely too. When the breeze blows the porch is the most fragrant place in the world to be.
Not to be left out we will have peas for the 4th of July.
And my tomatoes are coming along great!
I made a lavender wand with some of my lavender today
You can use it in your wool or linens and it is wonderful on your pillow at night.
This is the view from our porch it is a very washed out picture because of the sun but as you can see all the underbrush has been cut thanks to husband, but the best part of that is at night the fireflies come out!
It is so magical to sit on the dark porch and see hundreds of fire flies blinking all over the yard and in the trees. I am brought back to my childhood I use to catch them in a jar. I tried taking a video last night but it just didn't work.
To pass some of the time we have been playing cards on the porch. The horrid humid heat broke on Wed night this past week, we were 7 days in it. I hate that weather but it has been nice since.It is raining a bit right now but hopefully we get more. We hear thunder bouncing off the mountains so hopefully that means more to come.
And we have a house guest for the week. Meet Kora
she is our daughter's dog and this is her first time being away from them since the whole covid thing and I do mean the first time. She was so home sick yesterday. We walked and tried to keep her busy.
Today she has settled in and feels at home here. They are camping and Sweet B has asked for lots of pictures. She is their little pound puppy and she is very sweet.
Not much going on, my knee is better but my foot is taking it's time healing. I have no plans for this week and really I am happy to be at home with all the vacationers here. Better safe than sorry.
Have a wonderful week.
