This summer took a heck of a long time to get here. While the rest of my friends were scorched through June and July, here in the Portland area it has been almost uniformly cool and rainy. But since the 4th of July we have had some sun mixed in with the clouds at least!
And that means gardening around here.
My husband does almost all of it...I just take care of a few flowers here and there.
Have a look!
The dogwood in front has gotten so big since we moved here 20 years ago that I have a lot of shady places to fill...
But the real action this year is out in Robert's garden...
He EVEN is talking about rebuilding our funky greenhouse--which I have been encouraging him to do for years--so that those figs will have a full time place to live in the winter....
I have mostly been sewing instead of gardening...and very happy at it too.
This makes me sad... ;-( .....but it is for a nice reason. So you won't be seeing too much of my current work here for awhile.
I of course will keep my teaching and workshop pages current just under my header up at the top of the blog.
Thanks for stopping by....and Happy Summer!
