Bent Willow Garden Fence

Tender, green herbs were sprouting, springtime showers dampened the soil and then warm sunshine heated the ground... I needed to protect my precious perennials.

I finished a bent willow fence yesterday. It was an "improvement project" that I really enjoyed. It is made out of Vine Maple and the scallops are fastened with hemp.

Hopefully my ground-cover thyme will not be in the pathway of active boys and their furry pals this summer! =)

The Structure of an Orange


* * * * * * * * *

I can hear feet pitter-patter and young voices squeal...

...I have just cut into an orange.
No, oranges do not not walk and they to not talk-
They just have a big fan club...
(They push me to be intelligent, even if we are just eating an orange...)
How many ways can we prepare this citrus?
Can I peel it all in one peel?
The peel tastes horrible!
Look at all of the pockets of orange juice!

Never underestimate the structure of an orange or the sheer delight of just...
One more piece...please?
