Another hummingbird sighted in the front yard this morning... apparently hardy fuschia is a treat for them? When I walked out the front door to see what was flowering this morning the bird came right up to the fuchsia while I was standing next to it!! Brave little hummer and what a delightful way to start my morning! I need to plant more things in the yard that are hummingbird treats...
Progress report on the reverse applique project: the front neckline design had to be applied and painted in several stages in order to place the stencil in a centered and smooth orientation on the already sewn RTW garment
The back neckline motifs are painted as well; all the painted bits need to cure for 24 hours and then be heat set with a dry iron, before the kelly green layer can be basted in place and the reverse applique stitching begun
Just found out that there are times once a week when the local city pool is free; if my ancient swimsuit is still wearable, can take advantage of the option and do some water-walking which is a recommended aid to my PT and recovery
Need to make a framework to hold bird netting above the salad table. Glad I didn't yet reseed it, since local squirrels had a field day today digging and tossing the dirt all over the porch. Some of the saved plum withies, lashed together with cord, should be a suitable way to support anti-tree-rat netting, and I can start growing some more greens...
