Wordless Wednesday

Well...almost...but cannot quite go completely wordless, can we?

Today was paperwork day. Said I would have it done by noon. I pushed away from the desk at 11:58 A.M. . Yes! Like a school kid dismissed for the summer. I did my good deed, then I was released with a fresh mind to do the work I really love...make soap. Such a blessing.

Brewed in the shop today, Lily of the Valley goat milk soap. The fragrance this batch smells a lot closer to the real thing. I think we are going to like it, ladies (and gents)! Blended in bentonite clay for a touch of light green color and added silkiness.

Stopped and looked at the flower beds on the way back to the house. I have been weeding this bed like crazy. Something keeps eating the tops off of the zinnias. I do not think they will bloom this year, but the marigolds are pretty. This one is my favorite (sorry for the blur).

Wordless Wednesday...almost...nearly made it. :)

you'll have to get some guinea's so they'll eat the bugs who are eating your flowers.

Lily of the valley sounds lovely, it's such a delicate scent. Look forward to cut pics :D

That stuff looks almost good enough to eat. Like fudge.
Nothing more satisfying than a big job accomplished.

Love the smell of lilies. Especially, the stargazer, you know that type?
these are very nice lilies, and they smell heavenly.
Hope your lily of the valley will turn out lovely
