Behind the Fence

Almost Ready

In spite of rain and with long hours, I think the garden is almost ready for the Art in the Garden tour on Mother’s Day.

There is a hole in the fence behind the compost bins that will have to be addressed. A tree in the fence row was removed by our neighbor earlier this year. While I am happy to have more sun in the potager, it does create a bit of an issue for the garden tour.


I made a new curtain for the sink; I laid it on the edge of the sink while I removed the curtain rod, accidently knocked it into the sink which was getting stains bleached. Now it has a bleached square. One of my artist friends tried to convince me it looked “artsy,” however I have enough material I will make another panel and replace the bleached area.

Still have a number of pots to wash and put away.

The potting shed looks good (until you peek behind it.) Cleaning behind it and the greenhouse is on the “to do” list.


Two of the fairy houses have been painted. The other two will be painted today, since it is rainy and I can’t work outside.


Rain is predicted for today and tomorrow. That means I will be putting in long hours the remainder of the week! I am fortunate to have great friends than have offered to help.

If you are in the area on Sunday, please stop by, 3223 Buckner Lane, between 2 and 5 p.m. for a garden tour and visit with local artists. You may even fine the perfect art for your garden in the art auction!
