Front Yard To Do List

Reading from Left to Right:
1. Pots planted into ground
2. Sew new seat cushions. Think about color scheme in light of painting shutters and door.
3. Rip out 2 box woods and plant 3 miniature box woods and 3 shrub roses

Faded Cushions

I think I’ll sew the covers today

Remove these last 2 and plant shrub roses

Cinco de Mayo Shrub Roses Fragrant!!!

About Mary Beth

I am fascinated by changing patterns and colored threads. I sew garments and am teaching myself to machine knit. Since selling the building that housed my workrooms, The Stitchery, I'm searching for a place to set up the knitting machines again. There must be room here somewhere!

  1. You have been so busy!

  2. Very nice! And I like your good news too!

  3. What a gorgeous house you have Mary Beth! Your “playground” is huge and you have played a lot in it as I can see.

  4. ooh, i like those cinco de mayo roses. tell me, are they hardy? or not fussy? i had roses around my kitchen window, but they didn’t survive the winter (and i’m not inclined to baby them). i need to replace them with something else.
