Well, work around the shop is going steady. I have several projects underway, including the one's I am finishing from the Garden Tour. It has been raining nonstop since Wednesday, so it has been easy to focus on work and not the garden. But, amidst all the wet skies I thought I'd post a couple pics from early in the week when the sun was shining. The Bottle Monster is completely surrounded by purple coneflowers, bluestem and asters. Just wait until September, when the yellow of the asters and goldenrod burst forth.
I attached a Moon Comet to the fence also. The side of the shop provides a crisp backdrop.
