Garden Pictures


It was a beautiful day today so I got a bit of garden work done.   Here was the yard a few weeks ago.


Today I worked on one of the beds along the fence.   Getting it ready to plant but turning over the soil, raking out the rocks, and digging out tons of roots and weeds.   I added edging along the fence to keep the neighbors weedy grass from growing in.   Here is that bed.


I transplanted a few more fens and hosta around the few shrubs that I was able to salvage. .


They look pretty bad now but next year they will be looking great.

The hosta along the drive look pretty good


Teddy supervised the transplanting. For some reason he didn’t want to have his picture taken today.


The real stars of the “old” garden this week are the lilies.

here are a bunch more pictures of the other flowers in bloom today.

Some quilt updates next time

Happy Summer


AQS Quilt Week


My hand quilted reindeer snowflake quilt will be at a few AQS Quilt Week events soon.

First it will be in Syracuse NY July 29 – Aug I

next in Grand Rapids MI August 12 – 15

I probably will not make it to the NY show but I do plan to be in Grand Rapids (only about an hour drive)  unfortunately AQS shows do not allow dogs :)

Teddy will not be able to attend,


but he did spend some time relaxing on the quilt.

I am still working on my other project so I don’t have any quilt updates…..but I will soon.

I always have garden pictures this time of year. Here are pictures I took this evening. (click pictures to enlarge)

Happy quilting


Rain in the forecast


Looks like rain any time now.    I took some pictures before the rain knocks the flowers flat.   I exaggerate but sometimes the rain does do a bit of damage.

Something quilty next time

Borders next


I have to finish hand quilting the borders and then add the binding.   The binding will be black.   I hope to finish it this week.

I spent some time weeding the garden today.   Teddy watched


Here are some pictures of the back garden (click pictures to enlarge)

Next time I hope to have pictures of the finished quilt.

Happy Quilting
