I Heart Sunflowers!


I went out to the garden today...I always check the garden to see if there is any problem to deal with. I saw that I have a heart shaped sunflower. I got a pic to share with you. It was extremely smokey from the forest fires near here. UGH.

SUNJOE - A new garden tool

I saw this battery operated garden tool in Country Gardens Magazine. I thought that this would be a good addition to my gardening tools. I searched online and at garden centers for a tool much like this one.  There just are not many to select from. I decided to buy this one because it doesn't weight as much as the other one.

I have been hand trimming the lavenders and other perennials, it is lengthy (time wise), and hand and wrist tiring situation. I needed some tool to make the situation better.

My new SUNJOE just arrived and I charged it yesterday. Today, I trimmed some plants.  I am impressed with the ease and handling of this tool. It has not had much hard use, so I hope that it will stand a test of time.

Navajo Cuff Bracelet




Do you like it?
Wow, it is beautiful and vintage. 
Would you wear it?

This beautiful vintage cuff bracelet is now mine, and I will wear it often, and enjoy the wonderful pleasure it brings me. I am a little quirky that way...

I had planned to go to a Vintage Faire at Brownsville Oregon....but it was just too hot. I went junking - antique(ing) instead, an interesting hobby.

The Pacific Northwest has been in the middle of a heat wave. It has been much hotter then normal (100 to 105), and is terrible. Forest fires are burning and growing very large, the smoke is bad.  The air is bad, so much smoke that I don't go outside much. The garden and patio plants are begging for water. I put out extra water for the honeybees. I put out a small water trough that is used for the baby calves....for deer and other wildlife that passes by.
