four giant beets and one yellow squash..... Yum! Nothing more delicious than fresh beet and mandarine orange salad.
Tammy - here is my deceased Columbine. The first casualty of the season. It was so beautiful a few weeks ago -- then it got HOT and look what happened.... :(
Vicky -- look what I've got -- little blue eggs (3) and they are low enough I can check them every day without a ladder! (Update: just found two more nests in the backyard)
Sal is around now for the summer. Here is where he will be spending the majority of his time when not at work.....(he worked and saved his money for several months and bought this the "old fashioned way" -- for CASH. We are very proud of him -- NO LOAN!) It's a beauty too -- 2002 Mustang GT Convertible - Sexy! Now if he would only pay his cell phone bill on time...!
Progress in the garden: eeensy weensy pickles, some nice sized (yet still green) tomatoes, tons of eggplant flowers, two huge artichoke plants, and flowering watermelon, honeydew, cucumber plants. The herbs are hanging in there, but most are fading fast as they aren't fond of the heat we've been having.
And finally, for your viewing pleasure Tammy -- the first sunflower bloom of the season. You know, I never realized how beautiful the sunflower buds really are as usually they are sitting up atop 6 foot stalks so I could never get a good look. For some reason this one is only about 5 1/2 feet tall so I can see it really well on a step stool. I do believe I see an art quilt or a watercolor painting from this....
I know, not much fiber"y" stuff going on here. I am in the process of cutting, and cutting, and cutting, and cutting, the homespuns to begin a "slow" cloth quilt. Aren't these colors awesome -- it's hard to find homespuns in these beautiful teals and turqoise shades. Started stitching Van Gogh, but not ready to share that yet.
Contest Details Comming Very Soon -- but be prepared, as Sabrina said I need to make you "work" for it this time!!
