Gardening or Glass?

Coffee in the go mug--it's a Jupiter Coffee goat's dancing blend with an extra shot of espresso, no music because in a sec I have to get out the door. Today begins with a landscaping trip to get the huge glazed pots for the backyard, then off to Interface Flor to order the carpet for Vegas. I am thinking PURPLE! I can't do the foam tiles because my boots (I wear them for the February show) have stiletto heels and go right through them. I thought about gluing carpet to foam but that's too much work for not enough pay off, and I also thought about buying the carpet already on the thick foam, but I would have to buy two sets (25% more tiles than I actually need and also 25% more cost) because I always have a 10 X 15 booth and they are configured only for 10 X 10 and 10 X 20.

Yesterday I planned the pond (+stream +second pond... poor Dave!) and started picking the antique climbing roses I will plant--all chosen because they do well in the south as well as having all the characteristics I am looking for in color scent, flower shape and size. I want some to go over the fence, some to go up and over the big pergola over the driveway, and one spectacular one to go up the side of J's little house and spill over the roof. I also wrote lists of other plants I want to put in, and all I really want to do today is keep gardening--even though it is only 42 degrees out right now! But today I am back to glass, and the transition is a hard one. At least the kilns are warm...

You could always plant hot pink roses; that'll keep you warm...
