Of course, those flowers work best for May or early June weddings - so plans for zinnias, daisies, hollyhock, and maybe sunflowers are set for later when actual transplanting can take place. It is still nice that in the dead of winter when things seem colorless and gloomy that there is hope and anticipation for spring again - color and warmth and life. The hope of contributing to the "Happily Ever After" moments for a slew of upcoming brides is an exciting thought.
A fresh new coat of paint and in fact a new color palette for the old Milkhouse is ongoing for this week. I can't wait to post pictures of that - wow, what a difference a good coat of paint and a new color does for making a good impression. I don't know why I question it - I say the same thing when I leave Phyllis's (my hairdresser) and she has recolored my gray hair once again with a fresh coat of some new color.
Rain begins tonight and tomorrow and maybe there is a day or two before some more frigid cold temperatures set in again. I guess it is time for some indoor projects. I found a cute 10-bulb chandelier last week for the barn - just gotta find the right spot for it. Maybe some interesting ideas can play out as I tackle the "Garden Room" which is in the old Milkhouse - a room that we will set aside for caterer's needs and such.
That is it for now. Pictures to be posted soon - ya know what they say - "A picture paints a thousand words....." so let's begin a story.
