With the help of Bob, we got the Coral Bells moved. In the spot where they were, they were about to be over run by some roses. We moved them on the other side of the Potentilla. I'm sure they will be happier there. Then Bob (uninstructed to do so) decided to dig up some of the new rose plants that were too close to the house...and the ones that weren't so close. Who knows what will happen now. The Coral Bells are thriving.
This spring, I told Bob to cut the top half off. He thought I had lost it. I usually tell him not to trim things. He does have a tendency to overdo it and cut too much. He actually wanted to pull it out. I didn't want that because it was pretty healthy. He cut the top half off and it has never looked so good. The flowers this year have been spectacular. They also smell really good!
We saw this bird bath a few years ago. A local lady takes interesting leaves and uses them as a form. This is a rhubarb leaf. The glaze on it is really pretty. I got a smaller one for my sister that year too. Lately, the robins have really been taking advantage of it in the later afternoon and it really cute. I have been trying to change the water daily to there is fresh water. Buster likes to chase the birds away.
I love the peacock on the roof of the house.
Looking forward to the weekend. Going to get mulch this weekend. (Doing the mulch happy dance.) We are also going on a road trip Sunday to see Ed and his new apartment. He bought some chicken last weekend but, didn't cook it yet. I think he may be nervous about doing it. We will probably pick up a couple of shallow pans for him while we are there.
Thank you for the great comments. My basket is really cool. I just have to find the right thing for the top.
FYI, if you haven't seen...Norden Craft has been doing a daily giveaway of signed patterns. I don't know how long they will be doing it but here is the Facebook Norden Crafts Link. Today's winners have been picked but, there is always tomorrow.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
Keep on Stitching
