I have a new treasure--an Amish red star! My friend, Dorothy, found it in Pennsylvania last month for me after I wrote a post on the expensive stars I had seen around at various shops in the area. We met for lunch during the History Conference, and she brought the star! I love it! I love the price--$11!
Tom just hung it last night from the topside of our shed vent after gluing some styrofoam squares to the underside of each point so they won't scratch the siding when the brisk winds blow--as they are known to do on our hill. He actually may need to end up adding wire to the lower points and stablizing it on the ground. I hope not, but we'll see.
The white trellis is new this spring...but the hyacinth bean plants I grew from last year's seeds and planned to have covering it by this point in the summer mysteriously disappeared. I planted more and covered them with flexible netting; hopefully, I'll have some purple vines and blooms climbing before frost hits. If I do, I'll try and take another picture.
Thanks, Dorothy, for a neat red star! It really adds to the shed, don't you think?
