Jamie loves to decorate and fix up her home, however she’s not much of a gardener.
You can see that her landscaping has become a little out of hand.
While half the crew worked on the deck, the other half worked on these overgrown flower beds.
This lonely little plant (double impatiens) got a new home too.
Doesn’t it look so much better? Ewwww, see that yucca plant? I thought it had bit the dust when Jamie got a new water line! It came back. The flower bed was so overgrown, I hadn’t even noticed that it was still there. I am not a fan!
Another bed overgrown. You can’t even make out what is what!
This monster rose bush had become very unruly, attacking visitors as they got out of their cars.
It’s getting a trim!
yep, the girls are still whacking away at it.
This little beauty is to the left of the monster rose bush. Do you know what it is? If you do, please leave a comment telling us, k?
The gardeners used preen, so I’m hoping that will keep the weeds under control. Jamie is her momma’s daughter, I don’t like to weed either.
Tomorrow, fence repairs and how I made the benches and table.
Uses for Elmer’s Glue-All
- Remove a splinter. Coat the splinter with a drop of Elmer’s Glue-All, wait for it to dry, then peel off the dried glue. The splinter should be stuck to it.
- Seal plants. Gardeners use Elmer’s Glue-All to seal ends of pruned stems and branches against insects and excessive moisture loss.
- Prevent broken shoelaces from fraying. Dip the ends into Elmer’s Glue-All.
- Fix small holes in walls. Small nail holes can be filled by squirting in a drop of Elmer’s Glue-All before painting.
- Make moldable dough that dries without baking. Mix equal parts Elmer’s Glue-All, flour, and cornstarch. Mix and knead well until blended. If too dry, add more glue. If too moist, add more flour and cornstarch. Food coloring may be added if desired. Dough can be molded into any desired shape to create animals, figurines, ornaments, and jewelry. Dough keeps for weeks in a Ziploc Storage Bag.
- Tighten a screw hole. When a screw hole is too worn out to hold a screw, soak a cotton ball in Elmer’s Glue-All, stuff it into the hole and let dry for 24 hours. Use a screwdriver to put a new screw into the spot.
- Make a starch fabric stiffener. Mix water and Elmer’s Glue-All in a bowl to desired consistency. Fabric dipped in the mixture can be shaped and dried in decorative forms and shapes.
- Teach kids how to write their names. Use crayon to write the child’s name on a piece of paper, then trace over the letters using Elmer’s Glue-All. When the glue dries, children can use their fingers to trace along the tile letters of their name, making it easier to understand the shapes of the letters.
