July's full moon art is in the form of cloth once again. This is the eighth calendar moon cloth in the current 13 moon series. The calendar cloth is nearly hidden by the lace of the house, but it's there, looking out. And there's a patch of Rumi cloth on top -- "Some Kiss We Want" written on muslin -- I call it written-word cloth in my label section over on the sidebar.
This morning I cut lemon verbena and chocolate peppermint for drying. They'll be ingredients in a tea blend of whichever herbs thrive in the garden this summer -- to be named Spirit of the Garden Tea Blend 2013. I've always wanted to do this and will try not to be too concerned about whether or not flavors "go" together. Whatever does well in the garden ought to do well in the teacup, I say. I hope.
The dogs, Daisy (black) and Talula (rusty), and I watched a nice rain yesterday. Well, the dogs were actually waiting for it to stop for their walk. I watched, they waited. Normally Talula is after rabbits (which she feels she has a chance with) but with the rain she had to settle for squirrels (no chance). An old red step-stool chair that's the year-round haircutting station of my outdoor barber shop, rain or shine -- buddha rain man garden -- lantana -- hoya plant stretching for distant lands.
Thanks for stopping by and happy weekending to all. xo
