Not much going on here. Lots of visiting and laughing. Our guest came in the room when we were having a family meeting about grades and she got a really good chance to see how our family works. I think we impressed her. Good food, and a little bit of short, good TV to fill in the gaps, when we’d run out of things to say.
So, I thought I’d show you a bit of what else is going on around here. I don’t just sew, although do sew a lot. But, I also sow.
Here are the orchids in the kitchen window. They practically scream to be looked at while I do dishes. I almost hate to see the new flowers open because I know that brings us just one step closer to it being over until next year.
And, outside, an unknown plant, swapped with a neighbor. I could look it up for you, but that would take so much time. And, time this week is a very precious commodity. Pentas maybe? I think my Mom grew it as “leaf of life” that she ordered through the mail, when I was a kid. I treat it like a succulent. It blooms in sun and full shade. I didn’t realize it would survive a freeze until this past winter, when this cutting got dropped in the yard and took root.
Columbine and lemon on the right.
The first few dots of purple. There’s lots of purple in my yard.
And, this. I think it’s an oakleaf hydrangea, but wouldn’t bet on it. It came from my sister’s yard last April, as a handful of roots. I cut the bloom off of it to transport and it looked like oakleaf hydrangea. We will see as it develops. It didn’t do much last year, but looks set to explode this year.
I dug this up with the shovel and then grabbed it with my hand. About a minute later, my dad killed a poisonous snake about 8 inches from where this had been. Still gives me the willies.
Anyway, Love to grow things.
Everybody have a great Thursday. Rob and his Mom are dropping off my quilts at the show today. Way cool.
Be well. Lane
