Sunny, Yellow . . .

days of Summer . . .


My garden is just a mass of overgrown beautiful blooms right now.  Of course I’m always worried about the weeds that just never quite get tamed all year but I had that all put into perspective the other day.  Two little kids from next door came running over when I was out in the garden - the boy was maybe six and the little girl was four or five.  They bounded up to the flower beds and started smelling all the flowers they could and then they looked up at me and said “we just LOVE your garden - it’s so pretty and there are SO many flowers!”

I think I’m going to try and stop more often and just enjoy all that is here – weeds included!


Something I always enjoy is continuing on with a project - and sunny yellow, pretty pink, dilly green and grassy green spools of thread will allow me to do that.  Shopping trip completed for that – and that’s all I bought - thread!


This pretty package showed up in the mail – needs to find a spot in the stash somewhere. 


This is one of my flower pots near the driveway . . . a little bit of July 1st still remains mixed in with the “pretty in pink” Communities in Bloom display.  This is so much nicer to look at than the snow banks that are there the other six months of the year!

Hope you’re having a great weekend!

Your flowers look just beautiful.... but, as they say, "a weed is but an unloved flower"... fortunately I am blessed this year with a "huge" unloved flower garden and no time to tend to them.... lovely threads and fabrics, looking forward to seeing your creations from them. Hugs.

Those thread colors just speak 'summer' to me - they'll finish off that fabric just perfectly!
