Gabrielle, a water garden sounds wonderful. I've wanted to turn our old
pool into a water garden, but hubby thinks it would be a disaster!!! I've
spent a lot of time developing several little garden spots in my back yard
this summer--lots of hydrangea, hosta and ferns since I have a lot of
shade. With the draught in Georgia, it is a challenge to keep them
healthy. Feel guilty--we're on a strict water usage ban--and wonder what
this means for the future if we continue to have these hot dry summers!!
Your fashion outfit made of garbage bags sounds wonderful. I've been
wanting to try this with one of my groups forever. Do you have any
suggestions or remember any thing about how you went about the lessons?
Hope you continue to have a wonderful summer! Thanks.
