    WoW!!! So beautiful! Now I’m really homesick. Iris are my favorite & remind me so much of my grandmother’s garden in Olivet.

    Your garden is about two-three weeks ahead of SE PA. I am amazed. Everything looks good.
    The only fast growing thing in my garden is the ferns. I did not put them in and they are seeding themselves.

      I love that about ferns…they plant themselves where they want to grow!
      my garden might be a few weeks ahead of yours but its a few weeks behind where it is normally at this time….we had a long hard winter and it set back everything
      Hopefully we will have a long mild summer!

    Do I spot a bit of a pinky-lilac and acid green colour scheme coming hrough? Beautiful iris, really lavish!

    • timquilts says:

      🙂 the garden can inspire colors for quilts as well…..but I do love those colors……and the Iris is something I want to make a quilt with….just need to figure out how I want to do it

        For some inspiration, you could do worse than visit here:

        Even if it’s not your cup of tea, you can still marvel at the detail, loving care and sheer hard work that went into them.

    Love that you have native Jack-in-the-Pulpit and trillium! I have the same ones, although your garden is a lot tidier than mine!

    • timquilts says:

      you can’t beat those native plants! I am slowly getting more ….I should do a post on the natives in the yard…..but the shade plants are my favorite natives….I hope to add some of the white trillium and a few bloodroot and twinleaf…and some more native ferns…yikes I need a bigger yard 🙂

    The irises make me homesick too. However when I was in SE PA the end of April, they had snow on the ground. My flowers are gone for the year. Keep showing yours, they are beautiful.

    Got any rhubarb?

  7. Tim,

    Thank for taking time away from your quilting and coming to Town Hall Quilt Guild tonight. This is the second time that I have seen your lecture/trunk show and I am still speechless. Your work is outstanding. I hope that your drive home was not to taxing.

  8. I love seeing all the plants we cannot grow down here in the Gulf Coast heat. The baby Robins are precious. This year I have noticed many Robins staying here. Maybe our “cold” weather has confused them.

    • timquilts says:

      IM always the same when I see plants I can’t grow here because of the cold winters.
      About the robins, I think it might have confused them..Im not sure how they know when to do what, but temperature must have a part in that…..the nest that they made here on my porch was made while it was snowing…and I think that confused them too!
