I’ve neglected my blog a bit this week because I was overjoyed to have my dear parents come for a visit to help celebrate the 4th of July with us. Since fireworks are banned here in this town like so many other towns, I thought some floating candles would provide some night time sparkle. I had one of those “light bulb” moments last Monday when it occurred to me to take an old galvanized tub, fill it with water, and then float some candles in it. Since I did not have any proper floating candles, I asked my husband to make me some little candle rafts, which he did out of some scraps of cedar. Not only was the finished result pretty, but fragrant too!
This lily is the current highlight of the garden. A few years ago Amy rescued it after she found it set out by the side of the road. Dried up and mostly brown, I was skeptical that it would survive, but Amy carefully planted and tended it, and now-all I can say is wow! It’s stunning-and every bit as ah inspiring as any fireworks display!
This is the book I’m currently reading and I can hardly put it down!
How was your week?
