Crafts, packing, and hummingbirds.

Published by Cathy Brockman on

It has been a crazy busy week for me. I have been gearing up for a trip to my dads in Hannibal Missouri. anyone going to be around in the next couple weeks let me know we can meet at the coffee shop! I have been making  some cups for him and my brother and it took all week as  I am not skilled on my cutting machine yet.


These are for dad I got him a lovely Medusa pepper plane  to go in the pot I made. He has been looking for the plant for a while. I found it and have been growing it for a month. Its looking lovely.

This is my Brother’s

I also made these labels and decorated Canisters for my son and his wife while we were learning. The canisters are recycled Folgers containers. They came into good use.

At least I get to sit at the table and look out into the rose garden this Rose Of Sharon tree has been  a great source of enjoyment all spring and summer. This spring I had cardinals and Blue jays peering in, Crazy bird chasing my cats now the hummingbirds busily buzzing about. (I tried to get a picture of the hummingbirds but I didn’t manage that.)

Now off to finish packing! I hope you have a great Holiday and I will try to post some photos while at dads. See ya soon!

Those containers came out great! I have a Rose of Sharon that I love, too. Sadly, we only get one hummingbird a year (and not until July) – he drives himself crazy defending the feeder from all the other hummingbirds.

    My feeders are all broken. They will have to eat naturally until I return from my trip. I have two rose of Sharon in the rose garden three in the shade garden and three on a fence line. A couple of them are white. I love them .

Those are great cups for your dad, and the other containers, too. Good job. You have such a variety of talents. I love rose of Sharon!
