Sunflowers

I've got a spot in my front yard where three of these would look adorable among the shrubs along my fence. It's sort of a yard I share with my neighbor (technically my property, but the two little spots of our front yards have been landscaped as one). She will ADORE these. She brings her friends over to see my garden, LOL I'm not even going to tell her I'm making them. I'll just have one "show up" one day as a surprise.

It's all your fault!! LOL

But seriously, I just placed orders with Wits End and Mosaic Art Supply (almost $200 yikes!!). I got enough for my sea serpent and some sunflowers and probably butterflies too. Hopefully, I'll get them in the mail before the end of the week. If not, I'll be at Lowes buying more diamond lath and rebar and piling up the projects.

LOL Calamity. I'm curious, though, what do you buy silicone caulking for?

I use GE Marine Silicone caulking for GOG projects, cuz it dries FAST and CLEAR! But mostly fast and it in a nice (expensive>Just went up to $5!!!) managable tube...heh heh.
