The fire pit in May

There is a fire pit underneath, awaiting summer cleanup — but I was drawn to the nice arrangement of shaggy grass and logs* (and, of course, the bench and the other beautiful pile of wood in the background).

This is at my brother’s and sister-in-law’s home in Loudon County, Virginia. The picture is from her (mostly about) quilting blog, deeroo designs.  Check out the spring color in their garden and also some ideas for half-square triangles here.

There’s another nice arrangement of logs here.

Tomorrow Tuesday Wednesday, about my own long grass. . .

Of all our sunny world
I wish only for a garden sofa
where a cat is sunning itself.

Edith Södergran, from “A Wish


*I imagine a nice little snake has been drawn to it too.

  1. Haha….I was thinking about moving all that stuff to start the clean up yesterday but was distracted by something else in the yard. Today it is raining….so that grass is REALLY tall now!
