So yesterday, when I took you on a tour through my garden, I forgot to mention one of my “crops”:
Wild grapes!!! Of course, I didn’t know that they were wild when I asked permission to drape the vine over my neighbor’s fence. I had hoped they would be the same concord grapes he’s nurturing just a few feet down. It’s okay, though. These grapes are small and sweet, but refreshing to pluck and nibble on when I’m out enjoying the yard. The photo above was taken much earlier in the season. They’re a deep purple now, but not much larger.
Aside from the grapes, though, the vines quickly enveloped the chain link fence that borders our yard. In fact, they were even starting to grow up into one of my trees, and I was pretty sure they were killing off some of the limbs. So, yes. It was time for a little trim:
But the point? Thanks to a little something I found on Pinterest, I was able to turn my trimmings into, hopefully, some show stopping decor a little ways down the line.
Of course, I should have done this a little earlier in the season, according to the tutorial, but I still feel pretty accomplished about my wreaths. I actually made four of them, but the biggest one is my favorite. They’re drying in the sun, right now. I can’t wait until they’re totally brown and ready to decorate!
So that checks off the FUNNEST item on this weeks to do list. It’s always good to get the funnest project out of the way first, right???
Have a great weekend!
