My petunias are looking great!
But, the on Tuesday morning when I got up, I noticed something was amiss.
The flowers on three pots were gone.
Bob thought it was from the rainstorm the night before.
Not what I thought
It had to be deer.
There are deer in the neighborhood.
And they like petunias.
The reason I don't plant them in the front of the house.
Our back yard is fenced in for the dogs but, its only a four foot fence.
I did a little research and found a concoction of ingredients that I have on hand.
I boiled water and dissolved garlic powder, added some Louisana Hot sauce because I didn't have cayenne on hand and figured this or Siracha sauce would work.
I cooled it down and added an egg.
I put it in a spray and spray them if they have been rained or water.
Buds are starting to come back and the deer haven't eaten the other pots.
I have blogged about my love affair with the Prairie Schooler.
I haven't done one in a while so, I have been going through withdrawl.
I decided to do some of these.
I acquired this one not too long ago.
Love the pea
pods at the top of the first one.
I love the colors of the fall one and the squirrels at the bottom corner of the first one.
The thing is, I frame much of my stuff myself unless it is really big.
I new what size frames I needed and usually the three snap shot collage frames work really well.
I went to Walmart one night, which is such a penance for me because I really try and avoid that store.
I looked on line for parts and figured I could get a frame from American Frame for $20 which is not a bad price.
I looked at Michael's on line but, the ones they had like the Walmart ones now have a wooden divider between each picture spot not like the matt the older ones do.
We were in Milwaukee for a doctor's appointment and afterwards stopped at Michaels.
I found the best frames!!!
Outside dimension 9x16 inside dimensions 7x14.
I can work with that!!
I just have to decide on what count of fabric and away I go!!
The best part was BOGO free and I have a coupon for 40% off the third one.
I can interchange the pictures for the season.
Why spend all that money.
I got all three frames for $27 not including tax.
My friend did one of the pictures and having it professionally framed for $45 including a family discount.
Need to get the supplies in line, especially the fabric.
I finished the BBD. saving for the next post and I'm working on a different PS one.
And tomorrow is FRIDAY!
Have a great weekend
Keep on Stitching
