227: and no jackee in sight

Top o' the mornin' to you, my friends.

Drinking my soymilk coffee.

Listening to Iron and Wine.

Tired. You know, as much as I loved going to Quilt Market in Portland, it really knocked me on my ass. I feel like I'm still recovering.

I'm going to Providence again this weekend. Good for me, bad for my poor neglected garden!

From Madelyn's:

Love that.

Madelyn and a friend of hers joined forces to create these ornamental trellises:

They are hard to photograph!

I want some.

Another collaboration:

Mmmmm, rust.

Oh, that reminds me: I bought a metal headboard for 5 bucks at a yard sale that I am going to use as a fence/trellis for my roses! I'll take pictures when I finally get around to doing it!

Great contrast of industrial and homey, don't you think?

I'm so jealous  of this curbside find:

So cute!

(((Looking at all of these pictures of Madelyn's place makes me think 'Oh, my poor garden.' I am being a bad  garden mama this year. Not watering, not weeding. I have to just let it go for now because it will make me crazy if I think about it. Gardener's guilt!)))

And more on the porch:

Don't they look great all together like that?

I feel boring today, so I will leave you now.
