As you can see, I have been experimenting with blog designs. I have often wondered (being of lesser technical intelligence than most) how people make their blogs look so cute. I have been surfing around and found some really fun sites for graphics and stuff.
My garden needed some attention. Since beginning this blog, I have been so fired up about quilting, I haven’t been in the mood to dig, but I did some planting today. Since I don’t have any new quilting pictures, I want to show some lovely pictures of my other hobby, my flowers…
Cleo spends a lot of time supporting my gardening. She doesn’t always understand why we are outside but not playing ball. This is a view of a flower bed I just built and planted this spring. I actually dug up the lawn, built the rock wall, filled it with soil, and planted the flowers myself (with lots of help from my kids and their “strong muscles”). I am pretty surprised everything has grown so quickly.
This picture shows some of my favorites: I collect hyssops, purple cone flowers, and coreopsis.
You may have surmised from my quilts and from my garden that I subscribe to the philosophy that when it comes to beautiful things, more is more.
You may also have surmised that my neighbors think I am crazy. That is probably true, too.
happy sowing, or sewing, or whatever you might be enjoying this week.
