I am sending out a call for prayer flags, so let me explain. As some of you know I am having surgery in July, A hysterctomy to take care of uterine cancer. You also know I really worked in my garden to make it a healing place. Its where I plan to spend most of the summer, especially when I am convalescing.
Last summer my glitters sisters; a group of artists I met online all made prayer flags for one of us who was dealing with cancer. They were fun to make and something one could do to offer support so far away. So I thought it would be wonderful to have more flags from my friends. I have asked a few friends locally to make me one so I thought I would open this up to anyone who reads my blog who might like to do this. If you do leave a comment with contact infomation and I will send you my address. My surgery is July 30th so I would like them before that, but if its later than that is ok too. I will just get Dave to hang them.
So if you want to do this you may be asking what do I do. Most of my flags are 9 x 9 made from fabric, you can make that size or any size you want but square works best. You can decorate in anyway you want, even just write a word or phrase with a sharpie pen. You don't have to hem them or anything I will put them together when I receive them.
These are the prayer flags in my yard. The set closest were made by my glitter sisters and the others are traditional Tibetan Prayer Flags. If you go to this post you can see the glitter sister flags close up.
Some views from my garden
I invited my friend Kate over for lunch to see the garden. Doesn't our food look lovely. We had Fettuccine Alfredo, a wonderful salad, ice tea and Mountain Huckleberry ice cream for dessert
Here is a plaque of the moon that I have added to a fence post. I am so in tune with the moon that she had to have a place in my garden. It is comforting to see her there.
These are some pink daisy like flowers that I planted a couple years ago in honor of my friend Daisy Lupin.
These are yellow daisy and were planted last week.
This Dahlia is so gorgeous I am thinking of getting some more. Right now as we speak a mourning dove is walking through the garden just pecking away. Its like I am creating this space for me but all of nature is enjoying it.
Another cool thing that happened is I have discovered I can take my laptop outside and still access the Internet. I couldn't do that with the old service we had.
