Holiday Frame Craft - Good Progress

The woodland frame elves have been hard at work. The staining was completed a few days ago. Here are the stained versions:


They turned out quite well! A $2.74 frame now looks at least $6.83.

Then we began cutting the crabapple twigs to fit the frames, and hot-glued them along with acorns and pinecones to the frames. In a few cases I've added a touch of glitter to some of the elements. Here are a few completed ones:




We're going to make a pretty placeholder image for the center of the frames when we ship them. First set will be shipped tomorrow. After we got our feet wet, I began adding oak leaves. I'll post photos of those in the next post.

Spring Bride Duet

For a wedding gift to me, my husband bought me the Spring Bride Duet - a combination of Cosmopolitan Darwin Hybrid tulips and Stainless Daffodils. We planted them in the fall of 2015, and they have faithfully come up each year. I thought the daffodils and tulips were a good combination for us in case the deer ate the tulips, the daffodils would still be standing. Also, tulips can fade over time but daffodils multiply. So far, both have come up faithfully, and beautifully, each year, and the deer have left them alone. I would buy Darwin Hybrids again - they have really strong stems and huge flowers! The Cospmopolitans color changes over the time they are up. They come up a pale peach/pink, and then slowly shift to a brighter pinkish/red.




Busy Bees

We took a walk through the conservation land behind the house, and found that while we were taking a respite, others were very hard at work harvesting pollen from the Prairie Asters:




Such a beautiful office to work in:

Moondance Roses

Two are blooming so beautifully right now. They captivated me for an afternoon, taking pictures of them from all angles.

The Russian Sage is framing them so nicely, and doesn't seem to interfere with their growth, it seems to almost protect them.
