My tiger lillies are taller than me this year. The last time we measured my height was years ago and I was 5' 3 3/4.
The humidity is much lower in the mornings so I've taken advantage of those hours before 8:00 AM to catch up on some much-needed garden weeding. It's been awhile since I've posted pictures of the large garden (as indicated in one of my first posts, we have several gardens on the property) so please excuse me while I indulge myself.The first photo is tall phlox; the second is of zinnias with a giant hibiscus behind them and the third is of the crepe myrtle that lives in our patio garden. The tiny rose-like flowers are on one of our moss rose plants. They're beautiful this year and are in so many different colors!
I know I have "shrunk" but I don't think it's much.
I completely stripped the fabric from it, repaired the wobbly legs and painted them. I had some jacquard upholstery fabric (in purple, one of my favorite colors!), added a LOT of stuffing and some white "pearl" buttons and now it looks like this.
It's still not done; I need to get a couple more buttons (yep, I came up short!) and to add fabric underneath to finish it off. I might add a tassel to each corner but am undecided. What do you think? Add tassel or not? Seriously, let me know!
By the way, I had to take a pic of it in our living room because it is too big to fit in any other room (you know, with furniture and all). As soon as I do the finish work, it's off to one of our shops.
