Hello Folks ~ I do hope you are all doing well. Summer is most definitely here. The past few days weren’t too bad, today is bad. There’s a big difference when the humidity is around 50%, than it is today.
This is what it is right now at 10:48 a.m. in s.e. FL. We have a chance of getting some rain this afternoon. We’ll see.
Yesterday morning I worked in the secret garden and trimmed the bougainvillea by my shed. Not too bad. I got a load of laundry washed and hung out too, which I still need to fold and put away.
I also helped DH get the counter top in place in the caravan. This morning he’s working on the hinged cover for the stove. The old one was formica over presswood and had gotten wet and swelled up on one side. He made a new one and is covering it with the formica as the counter top.
Here’s the counter top before formica was put on.
Here is our ‘curbside shopped’ formica, the little caravan will have a faux granite countertop.
After formica is on.
In place yesterday with the original sink set in. You can see the stove hole which is over the gas/electric refrigerator.
Another view. Remember now, this space is 6’x8’.
I cleaned up the stainless steel sink with Bon Ami and a scruffy pad.
Here’s a view this morning.
This is the path I’ve been working on. The three round pavers were what was the original path. They had to be bumped over/south when we set up the rain barrel. I wanted to add to it.
I incorporated the two pieces that broke off the bench.
I changed it this morning and still have a little tweaking to do, but not today.

Now, this afternoon I ‘hope’ and am going to ‘try’ to get some things listed in my Etsy shop. Dear Darla of Designs by Darla G and a fellow FL gardener, sent me an email nudging me to get off my procrastinating rear, not her words, but mine. I had told her I was going to be uploading some things the other day, but hadn’t done so yet, so I got a reminder which made me laugh.
That’s it for now. I’m hungry so need to get up and make us our lunch.
If you are working outside, don’t over do it, and make sure you drink plenty of water to keep yourselves replenished.
Happy Summer living ~ FlowerLady
