In the ‘if you have lemons make lemonade’ vein, the broken birdbath has become garden art. The other half will go in the garden bed on the side of the house.
Considering that the huge limb from the maple fell on all my barrels full of impatiens, they look surprisingly good:
I will figure out some artistic thing to do with the base of the birdbath. I really want to get a new birdbath because my little birdies really love taking a dip, especially the catbirds.
And here are all the branches and limbs that Don and I will have to haul up into the woods.
Looks like fun, doesn’t it? Suddenly it’s looking like autumn here with all the leaves on the ground courtesy of Hurricane Irene. This has not been a good summer for me. That’s an understatement. So, though I will miss the warm temps and shorts and the beauty of summer…I’m ready to move on.
Today, we are on our way to Boston for the Red Sox vs. Yankees game! If you remember, the tickets were my birthday present for Don. We are so in need of a fun day away from all the stress in our lives. I’ll take lots of pictures, of course.
