chandeliers, new perennial beds & hidden tree houses
these photos are from today's mucking about in the garden. I made a new perennial bed for yesterday's gleaning. I'm quite pleased with it all. Ah, there is nothing so fun as getting my hands dirty. Wish I could garden naked. Yep, tartlett - you heard that right.
this glorious chandelier cost me three dollars and I think it is worth every penny. Ron wants us to put it at the top of our stairs over where the window seat is going to be built before we die. Then I could make the window seat a glory of girly boudoirness which might be a bit odd at the top of the stairs or it might be 'just the ticket'.
on a walk this past week, Hoagy and I took a path we'd tried before but it was always too difficult - couldn't find the way in. Suddenly we found it easily. We went up a ridge reminding me of that song about Billy Joe McAllister and Chocktow and all that...we found a deer path through the ferny woods that led to a stream and across from the stream was a most marvelous tree house - obviously with no parental fingers on it! What wonderful serendipity.
