My hubby is asleep on our family room sofa,
one load of laundry is hung outside on drying racks under what I hope continues to be dry skies.
several days of dishes are washed, dried and put away,
a John Wayne movie in on TV,
our three pups are stretched out on the carpet
and I am trying to decide what to do next.
Part of me wishes we had gone to the coast today
(lately I have felt drawn more and more to that gorgeous place of serenity),
part of me wants to make crepes
(these from Cathy at Wives with Knives),
part of me is eager to get started on jam making
(this recipe featured on Grace's One Saylor's Log),
and then there is the part of me who is faced with the fun task of deciding where these
newly arrived gifts, from one of our friends, should go...
Yes, just when I had figured out what it was that some of our gardens were missing...
these blessings arrive at our home.
They won't work in our younger son's PNW/Japanese style garden,
but we have several other possibilities...
there is my dear daughter's miniature rose garden that badly needs something amidst the lavender, mini roses and Lady's Mantle.
Hum, which one for such a special blessing
as the Daughter of my Heart?
And then there is my mom's memorial garden...
it already has a bird bath, but needs something more I think.
Should this cherub go there?
Among the dogwood, kinnikinnick, salal, columbine, roses, bleeding heart and ferns?
Of course the wildflower/perennial garden needs some artwork too...
something to place near the salad burnet, poppies, columbine, snapdragons,
yarrow and more.
Plus I need to decide if I should paint the wood frames
(they are raised beds)
white or another pastel color,
or just leave them as they are.
Hoping your weekend finds you making such pleasant decisions.

A few examples of our newly arrived garden art.
There is also a little wood planter that looks kind of like a rocking chair
and a little garden girl.
