Hello everyone, happy Monday, and I hope you’re all finding ways to stay cool in the sweltering July heat! Today is the last of the Fair Weather Forum summer link parties, and the topic is ‘Gardening’. I had big plans to build a planter and feature it today, but life got in the way, funny how that happens! Maybe later, maybe next year, who knows!
Instead, I opted for a simple art project with a few stems from the one single fern growing in my yard. My backyard gets mostly afternoon and evening sun, which is great for grapes but not so good for shade loving plants. However, I do have one small fern plant tucked underneath our deck, and it thrives there year after year.
I’m fixing up our guest space since we’re expecting a lot of visitors this upcoming tasting season, and I love bringing the outdoors inside. I was looking for an inexpensive way to create some simple and unique wall art, so I decided to flatten and preserve some of those fern fronds from our garden, and frame them behind glass.
