Well, here it is, Friday again! The Bag Lady has a little project on the go and had hoped to show it to you today,but it's not ready yet. She'll work on it this weekend, hopefully, and will post about it on Monday.
In the meantime, her question from yesterday was answered by an actual Aussie! Lesley assures us that she has never heard of the product in question, so it is indeed a marketing ploy! The Bag Lady is quite relieved that there are no kangaroos being sacrificed for the sake of her hairstyle!
In other news, the deer have discovered the Bag Lady's vegetable garden. They happily munched down half of her peas. She doesn't understand why they only ate half of them, but she's grateful they left the other half. Unless they have plans to come back another night and finish the job. She strung some chicken wire across the row so any peas that actually manage to survive will have something to climb. She also tied some dryer sheets to the chicken wire with the faint hope that the smell will deter the deer. Of course, a little bit of rain fell yesterday, so she may need to replace the dryer sheets. If anyone has any suggestions for keeping the deer out of her garden, she would be happy to hear them.
It's supposed to be quite a warm weekend here. They are forecasting 27C (80F) for tomorrow, and 28C for Sunday and Monday. Guess that means that summer really is here!
Here are some more photos from the Bag Lady's flowerbed. This is called Rock Soapwort. It is a lovely, low-growing plant that spreads out (and helps hide the freakin' weeds!).
Here is yet another photo of her black irises and dark pink peonies:
And, lastly, the first rose to bloom on her Hansa rose bush:
Have a good weekend!
