We have been enjoying these all week and there are many more blooms to come. I love pulling in our driveway and seeing them smiling at me!
About 7-8 years ago, J bought a swing for me for Mother's Day. We have really enjoyed it. In case you didn't know, we are big swingers! ha! ha! Last fall, the squirrels (those delightful little critters!) chewed on the fabric and pulled out the stuffing for their nests! It has looked pretty pitiful since. So, this spring, we started looking for new cushions. Whoa! they are expensive.... $199. So, I thought of trying to make some, but J wasn't crazy about that idea... not sure he thought I could do it correctly. Anyway, last Friday, an Ace Hardware sale paper came and, believe it or not.... drum roll, please... they had a bigger swing (three seats instead of two) for only $99! So, J picked it up, put it together and here it is.......
We have been swinging all weekend! J placed it close to the gardenias so we could smell their sweetness and away from the tree that the squirrels jumped from. So, maybe it will be safe for the summer and we will put the cushions in the garage in the fall. Our son took the other swing, so they get to figure out what to do about cushions. :-)
