I just had to show you a picture of these frames for the pictures of the bride and groom. It was old barn wood frames with chicken wire. I love the look so much I might have to make some. It looked really nice like this on the gift tables.
Here is another picture.
Sorry it isn't a good picture but I was leaning over the gift table and it was a long reach. Not to mention I felt kind of odd taking pictures like that.
My husband got to do some Bonsai work this weekend. You know you just don't want to experiment on your trees that you are growing so in order to get better at it he goes to Lowes, and finds specimens on the mark down rack. He bought these, darn I can't remember the variety of pine, Moogo I think. He found these for a dollar. It was root bound and over grown.
One of the things that I found so interesting, is you take it out of the pot. and you have a tool like a comb. You comb through the roots removing lots and lots of roots. Then you put it back in the pot. If you have lots of roots it makes the tree grow lots of limbs. Since you want the tree to stay small, you don't want lots of limbs.
Don't you just love the twist in the trunk? I thought it was so cool looking. He needs to get it in a Bonsai pot and then he had to find the kind of soil it would grow in and he has to sift and mix to get the best kind. He also needs to wire it to get some more movement in the limbs. That is what makes Bonsai look so neat is the movement in the trunk and limbs, your eye is drawn to that movement.
This morning I planted sunflowers. It got so hot yesterday I couldn't stand being out in the sun. I went out early and planted great long rows of them. I still have lots of seeds left so I might need some more rows.
We managed to get some tomatoes and peppers planted.
Not a very good shot of the tomatoes. They are in the ground is about all I can say. The didn't go into shock or anything which is good. We have more to put in but like I said, it just got to hot to be out there yesterday.
I was getting ready to go out in the garden and I thought I would let the girls out so they could come out with me. They took off up the hill towards the pool so happy to be out of the pen. They did come out in the garden. I love listening to their voices and watching them scratch. I get my new silkie chicks next week. I can't wait.
Have a lovely Monday, thank you for all of the nice comments about our family. I enjoyed every single one.
