About two weeks ago I did my planting and this is the pot on my front stoop, full of pretty little pink begonias, shamrocks, and a lovely big fancy leaf begonia.
Same pot after the deer had a midnight snack about a week to ten days ago. I haven't replanted it yet but do have the flowers to do it and also some of that stinky stuff that is supposed to repel the critters. Maybe I should just put some bunches of carrots in it! Such beautiful creatures and such little scroungers.
I finished embroidering this little basket and did the tinting with the watercolour pencils. I'm not sure about the basket but will leave it alone. I like the flowers and will put the colonial knot centers in the three of them that need the knots. It works good to do the embroidery first - and after they are all done, the next step will be to put some textile medium on the color to make it colorfast. I think my next one will have a blue basket.
