Can y’all believe it is June now???
Before I share my awesome hand quilting progress this week let me share our outdoors here in North Carolina!!!
This bush survived a year with no care so we thought to plant it in our yard and it is thriving!! So when our friend gifted up some unknown bulbs… we encircled the little bush with the bulbs and they are beautiful Cala lilies…
Look at this close up too…
Around our yard here are some pics I took this week… we replaced the center verbena with a begonia… it did so well last year … this year we couldn’t find the cream but we did find salmon colored ones!!! Nice set between the ferns…
These 2 waxy lilies were each one stalk last year!! They tripped under ground over winter and are really showing off with more blooms to come! We may be staking them soon to help hold them upright!!!
Orange lilies below a gift from my walking neighbor who has an awesome green thumb as does my honey!
And bushes and crepe myrtles on the right side of our driveway…
Last year none of the crepe myrtles bloomed but we have high hopes this summer for these trees that line our yard! All those planes underneath it are hostas!!!
Then look how good my hens and chicks are doing!!!
And the quickly growing milkweed… to feed monarchs and give them a place to lay eggs for future monarchs…
These seeds were a special gift from my mom who is a master gardener and prolific milkweed grower.. she sent them too me and they are taking off! We hope to attract some beautiful monarchs with these !!!
Last weekend our neighbors and my walking buddy Theresa moved into their new house. Rick helped a lot with the 4 day escapade and I dog sat!
We went to visit their new home yesterday and we all had a grand time! Including our pups!
Recently my honey upgraded to a new iPad Pro we found on Mercari with a pencil and cover! I got his … has to be charged frequently iPad Pro 1st edition from him and found this new cover to protect it and enhance it on eBay… it came fast!
Finally… last night I took the final stitches in the hand quilting of my dad’s baseball quilt!!!
Linking this happy feat of accomplishment to Kathy’s Slow Stitching Linky Crew!!
Once the binding is sewn down and label attached I will send it to my dad for Father’s Day!!! Yippee 🙌!!!
