Lynne's secret patch of bittersweet. Every year Lynne and pal Barb would post photos of gloriously abundant cuttings of wild bittersweet vine. Finally, my own vine is producing it's own gloriously abundant cuttings. I decided to try and make a couple of wreaths. First I cut the vines and tried to wind them into a wreath. Not as easy as it sounds, it's like wrestling the vines. Then I let them dry, which in this humid weather we've been having was not working that well.
On a bittersweet note, we missed Charlotte's Grandmother's funeral because of car trouble. We got onto the tollway headed to Indiana with our frequently repaired vehicle, and it was great for the first hour. Then, the truck started to make these awful noises. We had to get off the highway and take the long way to get home. We missed being able to share in Charlotte's family's celebration of Grandma Charlotte's wonderful and full life. Our love to you Charlotte and to your family.
Thanks for stopping by. Hope your week is filled with happiness. Enjoy this beautiful day.
