Turkey Tracks: June 1, 2018
It is yummy to be on my porch in the Maine spring and summer. I spend a lot of time out here in the summer.
All the container pots are planted now and are growing well. That means DAILY WATERING. But I don’t care. The feeling of being on either porch–upper or lower–is about which life should be. And I do like the summer work of porch, lawn, and gardens. Doing this work makes me feel…connected, alive, energetic, satisfied.
I’m putting the binding on Bonnie Hunter’s 2017 Mystery Quilt “On Ringo Lake.” I changed the colors so I’m calling it “Megunticook Marmelade.” Pics and post to follow soon. This quilt is kind of a “fit” with my “Butterscoth Fall” finished last winter. I don’t think I’ve ever taken a quilt out on the porch while sewing binding. Who knew it would be so peaceful?
And here is more yummy!! A hammock where the hot tub used to be!!! I put it TOGETHER MYSELF, which was no small feat given the angles that had to fit together. I got into it to test it out and…did not want to get out. Where was my book? How about a nap???
Here’s the lower porch. You can sit out here in the rain. I only use the upper deck, seen above, in the winter when it is sunny and one can sit out there with a sweater despite pretty cold temps. In the summer this porch is way, way too hot.
On the walkway. Love it when this creeps blooms.
Summer is here!
