Speaking of Umbrellas...

... here are the beginnings of the "Great Artists of the Garden series!"





And the lengths to which we go to aid and abet our gardens in the extreme heat and dry weather!  ;-)

Perhaps I'll be able to provide photos of each of the finished products!

Perhaps a little "shady!"

I've never thought of painting an umbrella for myself, much less the garden! Cute..

Shady,
These remind me of the umbrellas that we being painted for a peace parade many years ago. I had a photo published of an umbrella that had peace symbols painted on it and the peace symbols were reflecting in the artists sunglasses. I did not see this when I took the photo.

Hi Gardener & Darla, We always seem to find something fun to do for our gardens! :-)

Randy, Hi! Do you still have the photo? Those unplanned events are often the best!

These are so creative--I'd never thought of painting an umbrella either. I haven't had much use for umbrellas this summer:(

I'm loving the brollies Shady ...but I suspect their decorations wouldn't last very long in our ongoing deluges!
Can we do swaps on the weather now please?!

Shady Gardener said...

Rose, Isn't it interesting we've not had an occasion at all to use the umbrellas for their intended purpose?

Liz, Thanks! And yes, we could swap weather... amazing weather we're all having.
