Greyson and the garden

I named this rag rug Greyson for the grey t-shirts that I used.  I read on the internet somewhere that someone was obsessed with grey (gray) and yellow.  And I have to agree-they look very nice together!  Greyson is made from thrifted sheets and shirts.

As a rule, my rugs measure three feet in diameter-in other words, 36 inches.  I am telling you this to give props to my prop-my ruler trimAhem.  If you have no clue what I'm talking about-don't worry, I understand.

Here I've got Queen Anne's lace, a marigold, a nasturtium, and some little green maters.  The Queen Anne's lace is a wildflower, of course, and the other three I grew from seed-it's such a great feeling to grow something from seed!

Here's this morning's harvest-yes!-the first cuke.  (I grew this from seed too.  Yay me!)  I just ate it and it was delicious.  There will be PLENTY more where that came from!

I hope you have a great day!

Greyson turned out Beautiful! I like that name for a boy too! It's different yet manly and still nice for a little boy. Okay, I'll shut up. Anyway Greyson is a lovely rug. Love all your flowers and I bet you can't wait to eat your first cuke. I love them creamed with mayo, milk, red wine vinegar, sugar, and milk.YUMMY! Just had some last night.

Greyson is lovely! (I love that name too) And congrats on the green thumbs you got going on there. The flowers look pretty.

I get that ruler thing! Grey and yellow are a great combo. When my daughter heads off to college, I'm dreaming of doing her room in those colors. I wonder what she'd think of that upon her return!

My maters' are about as big as your's! I don't have any cucumbers yet. I am hoping that when we return from vacation next weekend, my garden is full! Enjoy the "fruits of your labor."
