I have been working on quilting the fans quilt that I wrote about yesterday. I always say to myself that I will keep it simple but then I get going on it and the quilt tell me otherwise. Sounds strange but the quilt really does talk to me and tell me how to quilt it.
The Garden is growing! Had lots of rain the last few days and it is going to be in the 80′s today so things will be popping.
The Star today is this Iris!
And the lilac is finally opening…not fully open yet but the yard sure smells good!
Next to the lilac the Weigela (Weigela florida) ‘Wine & Roses’ just starting to bloom
There are a few roses opening ( in a few days there will be lots!)
this is Cuthbert Grant
This is The Hunter
I can not remember the name of this one (it is a David Austin) I will look it up and ID it next time I take a picture
The Dogwood still has a few blooms
Columbine are wanderers..they self seed everywhere
The climber over the side gate is going to be full of blooms
It is so large that it has caused the area below it to be a shade garden
The ferns and hosta are happy in the shade below the rose
the little puffy flower is a Meadow Rue that self seeded there.
The Peony are showing some color…
And the Siberian Iris are bull of buds.
There are Lupines in bloom
and the Cushion Spurge still looks good
The Common Thrift (Armeria maritima) is blooming
And the front yard is growing
Chives and flax
And Teddy is inspecting the garden …smells like someone was here….
Happy Gardening and Happy Quilting
