It seems as if most Memorial Day weekends are cold and rainy and this one is no exception. It cleared off this afternoon and I finished moving the plants outside. All except this one – today two blooms opened and as soon as it quits blooming, it will also go outside.
They are already drooping tonight but I think there’s three more coming. I simply can’t get over these 8-10″ blooms!
I left this picture big so you could get the full effect.
On a ride today through the grove watching the birds I happened to see this very large nest near the top of a tall tree. Wondering if it’s an owl nest? What if it’s an eagle nest?
The lilacs have never lasted this long nor been this beautiful in the 40 years I’ve lived here.
The green green grass of home! Ha!
The longarm machine is now working perfectly – this small baby quilt was my practice piece and sometimes you just can’t beat sewing squares together – such a simple pleasure!
The plants are now outside on the shady south part of the house – the sight of all my plants now living among the rocks is overwhelming to me. I absolutely love it!!
All of these are outside the quilt shop – yikes!
I’ve got a problem – I know.
Working on the borders for The Old Farmhouse.
Enough blabber – I’m watching Titanic as I write this post – I can literally feel the cold from the movie!
