Getting Dirty In The Garden

Lot’s of planting and pulling weeds this week as the garden gets going.

Remembering that I have garden aprons to lessen the dirt that I bring indoors,

I rummaged through the potting shed to find this linen apron.

I designed and sewed this apron for Country Gardens Magazine a couple of years ago.

The pattern and images appeared in the Fall issue of 2014.

It was a dream come true to travel to the Better Homes And Gardens Test Garden’s and

co produce the story with my friend Kate Carter-Frederick.

I ended up having to model for the story, and though I was in the most lovely gardens,

was completely out of my element!

This image looks simple enough.

I first held a watering can.

The pot was tilted many angles.

My shirt was unbuttoned-just one more!

The pot got really heavy!

They cropped this image-perfectly!
