Home and Garden Thursday
If you live in the south you’re familiar with the three H’s – hazy, hot and humid. More time spent in the garden – I’m doing a better job of staying in one spot and getting the job done – otherwise I could be like a butterfly flitting from one thing to another, distracted and not able to see progress! I am getting pretty excited – I will be attending the Haven Conference next month – can’t wait to meet other bloggers and to learn – I’ll be sharing with you all when I’m back – well – still a few days away! But, I’m so excited!!!
Here’s what I shared with you since our last party:
I have been teaching myself the principles of creating a vignette – it’s quite interesting, especially learning to apply the Golden Ratio – I arranged this vignette two different ways – which one appeals to you most?
Continuing my practicing building vignettes, and because I found this great lamp at Goodwill – I share more on the Golden Ratio and three basic principles of vignettes – it’s fun!
Dearest and I worked in our garden a lot on Saturday-the first day of summer! I discovered some of my perennials suffered from last winter’s ice storm – especially my beloved La Marne rose and some annual Petunias showing stress from the summer’s heat and drought. I had to do some necessary pruning and gained some lessons from gardening at the same time.
Also! Congratulations to winner of the Countdown to Summer Giveaway…Anna L!
