last days of July

My enthusiasm was flagging last week for a number of reasons.
The crazy heat was getting to me too, and then...

this lovely thing happened...
I received a darling handmade journal in the mail from someone I barely know, possibly a real life angel, in the online Mermaid Circus class I've been in since (I can hardly believe it) April.

The first few pages I filled were awkward and clumsy, indicative of the mood I had been in,
but then I came to the watercolour paper and decided to go back and work with the original design I made for my first ATC at the beginning of the month.
And this is where I stopped.
There are still a few days left for anyone who might want to do a trade with me.
You can see the details HERE.
And here is a picture for my niece who I promised to show an update of our garden.
See how well the aluminum pie plates are growing from the trees?
With 3 apples and 3 peaches left on each tree, I can't say they've done the best job of discouraging the deer, but at least I'm getting used to their tinging in the nighttime breeze.
It is cooler today and overcast with a possibility of rain.
I hope wherever you are the weather is kind to you
and that you are kind to yourself.

nice little book to fill.

I don't know anything about deer, but wouldn't blood or bone meal work?

Thank you. Well, wouldn't you know, Wally says you're right so why are we hanging pie plates??
