A Day of Wine (jelly) and Roses

My husband brought me beautiful roses a couple days ago, he thought they would cheer me up , since the rain storm we had practically demolished my garden, he is such a sweet guy and I am so lucky.

The down pour left a lot of sand. This area is sandy anyway and that is why the tomatoes do so well. I will get to work and try to save these squash plants.
Looks pretty pitiful, but there are worse things, like having no rain at all. By the way, here is a link about the Ashland Farmers market ..http://www.localharvest.org/. Looks like I will be shopping for produce there if this keeps up. Great place for home grown vegetables and a variety of other products.

I decided to make some wine jelly today . Tastes great over cream cheese on toasted bagel. So easy to make and a lot less expensive than buying in the stores.

A couple craft projects of mine......

A rose window made for a friend that hangs in bathroom window for privacy.

Two pillows for our bed, I latch hooked these with left over yarn, I just did a random mosaic pattern with the colors of yarn I had left over from other projects.



til next time
