Random Five Friday



Garden edging provided by a lifetime collection of wine bottles.  Photographed at the Laura Plantation. 

Whoever said, "It's not the heat, it's the humidity.", knew what they were talking about.  

June is just about over.  When did this happen? 

League softball tournament tonight for the daughter of the house.  

Dear weeds in the garden.....I curse you!  

The End

Linking up with Nancy at A Rural Journal

Y'all go pay her a visit.

  3. We don't do wine -- but I imagine other bottles would work for this fab edging technique!

    Thanks for sharing Michelle and good luck at the softball tournament! xo

  4. I've got a bunch of bottles. Will have to think of someplace to do this with. I like it.

  5. The humidity along the coast here in RI over the past few days has been so thick with day long fog. Nothing is drying and I'm thinking this must be what it's like in the Pacific Northwest. The weather Lady promises that it's going to be humid with heavy showers all weekend. Maybe a trip to the packy to buy some wine and beer for garden edging will be the thing to do.

    And to think, I've only been saving the corks…

  7. Love it! Had a bottle tree for years, but it is now gone, so this would be another project to build.

  16. That is a cool way to use those old wine bottles. And, yes, it's the humidity. I wish the powers that be would invent a way to get rid of it.

  26. We drink alot of wine, but most of the bottles are the same color...an interesting idea. Wouldn't the glass melt if it got hot enough?

  29. Now that's one cool border idea - I love recycling things like that. I threw a party this past weekend and for candles on outdoor tables I filled old vases with dried green lentils and put votives on top - it looked great and I have Restaurant Impossible to thank for that one!
