The bicycles had been hidden in the barn shadows for decades. An idea to use them in the garden grew in my mind, but the fear of snakes, rodents and buzzards left them there. Well, as a surprise a few weeks back, my sons braved the afore mentioned and wheeled them into the sunlight. Cans of bright spray paint and festoonery from the big craft store and the old bikes are all summered up.

The bikes are rolling between flower swaths that are planted with wildflowers. Hopefully what was planted will be blooming later this summer.

Early this morning I dead headed spent blooms and picked those in between bud and throwaway stages, to make this bodacious boots bouquet.
Herman got a body makeover and is waiting on his friends for a bike ride. Stay tuned.

Summer Blessings from the Exile’s Kitchen.
