This is the help. Pretty cute girls, eh. Their names are Marysa and Hanna. I bought them back in June!!
Yep, you heard right, they were for sale at the girls' camp fundraising spaghetti dinner and auction! Here is my husband between good friends Jane and Brent (with Eli photo bombing)
This is the other goodies I bought at auction!! I paid $20 for two twelve year olds to do yard work for a hour and a half.
The first picture of this post was taken the first time they came in June. After that I hired them to come weekly, except when one was on vacation, for the rest of the summer.
The first time, when they were pulling errant mint out of the Rose bed, they commented on the smell. I explained about herb tea, and asked if they'd like to try it. They agreed. We usually had our tea in my garden house, I just never thought to take pictures.
As you can see, one day I served them their tea on the front porch.
Over the summer we had rose petal tea, lemon balm tea, camomile tea, mint tea and lavendar tea, all from my herb garden
Here they are on our last day. I asked them to write to the niece of a fellow Pyrex Pirate who is their age, loves snail mail and who has cancer.
Then it was out to my free spirit garden, where I allow morning glory volunteers to climb and bloom among my tomato cages ... where they worked on saving the rises from being choked out by free ranging fgrass
Then it was time for our final tea party
What fun girls, they've added so much to my summer, and best of all I've spent at least an hour and a half every week in the garden!!
