I pulled off a lot of the leaves and you can see how nice the vine looks. The vine is holding nicely.
Breck dug a hole for our new Trumpet (Cross) Vine. The ground is so dry it looks like ash from a fire pit floating into the air with every shovel full. Hard to believe anything is surviving this drought.
We gave it a lot of water and wrapped the vine tendrils around the trellis to give it a start. I am pretty sure this is going to be a good location for it. Plenty of sun during the day, but late afternoon shade when it gets real hot. It is also protected from the wind being down hill a bit.

I know I told you yesterday that I would have more about my Halloween Cathedral Window Pillow and I am gathering stuff for that, but I won't have more until tomorrow. My good friend Diane's daughter Jessica is coming today to spend the weekend with us so I have other things I will be doing. She will be staying in the guest room that I have been working so hard on this summer. Hope she likes it.
Meanwhile my cucumbers are doing well and I have updated my "Earth Box 2011", "My Inhibitors", and my "Quilts I Made" pages. Life is good.
