Happy Wednesday Friends! I read somewhere that an overcast day is a gardener's friend. I couldn't agree more and this one is timed perfectly! It has been exactly two weeks since my house was turned upside down by a burst kitchen hose and the after effects of flooding. The insurance adjuster has come and gone, and the house is pretty much back together with the exception of the damage to my original concrete floors. As I waited for bids for the repair, I found myself getting antsy--nothing a little garden therapy couldn't cure...
The fresh air minus the usual humidity was just what I needed and I soon felt inspired to arrange a little garden vignette. I have a fondness for signs and hadn't seen this particular expression before so I was happy to find it on clearance at a local nursery. I have two of these vintage lawn chairs and they are surprisingly comfy. I loved the pale yellow when I picked them up from a yard sale a few years ago but since then, they have faded and needed a good cleaning and some fresh paint.
It has been on my "to do" list since spring and wouldn't you know I finally got around to it the day before my flooding issue! Cleaning and sanding them helped...
...but I knew I'd be happier if they had fresh paint. I used paint that I originally purchased for my oven. The bright green that arrived looked nothing like the online photo! It didn't work for the oven but was perfect for the chairs. They have been waiting patiently for me, arms taped until today! What do you think?
Do you find time in the garden therapeutic?
Thanks for hanging out with me today! I hope you'll stop back by Friday, I have a special project I've been working on that I can't wait to share with you!
