Ahhh summer. Such a busy time of year. It leaves very little time for art and crafting. I try to incorporate some creativity in my garden and yard. It gives me a break from the weeding, harvesting and preserving….and makes the garden a pleasant place to be.
The strawberries are done….the raspberries are starting to slow down, the beans are blooming and the lettuce is growing fast. I have tomatoes that are beginning to turn red and peppers that are almost ready to pick.
We received several boxes of cherries from the man that purchased our orchard. Lots of cleaning, pitting and freezing of fruit this week.
I have managed a bit of time while it was raining to paint a stone cottage and finished another doorway for the fairy tree.
The fairy door was made from sticks and bark with a polymer clay doorway. I had several decorative keys for another craft project. I cut one apart to use as hinges and door handle.
