The fireworks from 4th of July celebrations survived the rain of the holiday weekend. We experienced heavy rains once again for our first Hypertufa Studio in July. The weather didn't bother these busy beavers who made some great planters and ornaments for their gardens.

Sculpting Grots, a Danish terms for garden gnome, is always a popular project. Diane is thinking of bringing her Girl Scout troop to the studio to make them. Creating their own Grot is a wonderful activity for kids. The uglier you can make them, the better!

In fact, Judy's granddaughters joined her for the studio and they proved to be very creative helpers. Here, one of them sculpts her grandmother's Grot.

Garden stone display for the week

Connie made a really stunning leaf platter and decorated the bottom using an old rosette iron. She used used wine corks as legs for her platter.
