However, today I feel like I got run over by a truck! It is exhausting- the planning (though it is spontaneous), loading up all of your shop (and then unloading it at the end of the day!), the 7 straight hours of foot-on-the-gas building and problem solving is really exhausting; and I can't wait to do it all again next year!
This year, in keeping with our theme of building things for the garden, we built an outdoor shower. At
Butterfly Properties Garden Coaching, we encourage clients to embrace outdoor space as both an extension of your home and a refuge from life’s demands. Bathing outside gives a sense of freedom, a way to connect with the outdoors, and is also practical. Our Garden Shower creates a charming sanctuary for you, and a practical spot to hose down the kids and dogs.

In 2011 we built a mobile garden cloche (this is still my favorite project of ours)
Benefit Auction on October 25- so it could be yours!
The shower features insects made from garden tools that each have a function (I call them shovel bugs).
The lady bug's leg is a shower valve
Also I look forward to this event to see my friend Barry, it is about the only time we see each other anymore (he used to live in Missoula but moved to Idaho). The funny thing is we spend all day together, working a few feet from one another, and don't say a word to each other! Maybe its the ear plugs.
