I know there are many that would love our almost too cool weather but I, for one, miss the much warmer temps, but I promise I am not complaining in the least.
I went from making sure plenty of windows are open at night to let in the cooler air last week to making sure the house is closed up tight to hold in any warmth. I like the 90’s for a high during the day but I am also enjoying barely topping out at 80 with a breeze that is very cool.
I still enjoy my morning coffee in my garden but I don a flannel shirt against the chill first.
A few surprising blooms opened up this past week. I was delighted to find my Princess Diana rose had survived our move, I thought it had died.
I need to look up the name for this one but for some reason Peppermint Splash comes to mind. This one is supposed to be a climber but so far it is acting more like a bush.
Only one of my Canterbury Bells came back so far. I will have to save seeds and start some more next year to give this guy some company. I enjoy the vibrant purple.
My broccoli is looking mighty fine and taste pretty good too.
I had a few sign orders to fill this week, here is the completed patio sign. I brightened up the parrot and added some splashy flowers.
I am still going thru stuff and unpacking…it just never seems to end. But I have done a sign or two also for my website along the way. I have this one with pink roses already and decided to do one in blue.
I am trying to be better at getting my signs listed on my website but that is not as much fun as painting. I am working on it though along with trying to get my studio cleared out and reorganized.
I am going thru all my painting books, videos and just stuff and getting rid of a lot.
