Hello everyone ~ I hope you all had a great weekend. The predicted rain we’ve supposed to have been getting for days now, is still not happening. What doesn’t get watered is like straw.
Yesterday morning I went out to turn the sprinkler on and what do I see but blooms on my rosemary plant. How thrilling! I think I’ve only had them one other time in my gardens.
When we think of the bougainvillea we think the colorful bits we see are the flowers, but not so. Look at these tiny white blooms, these are the real flowers.
Love the coloring of this hibiscus.
First blooms on the Queen Crepe.
Blue Pea vine flower. I just love this color. Look at the tiny pea pod growing.
Zebra butterflies love the hamelia paten bush. Hummers love this too, but I’ve not seen any yet.
Louis Philippe ~ Florida Cracker rose
‘Granada’ ~ such a beauty!!
This is going to turn into a pincushion. The fabric is more on the green side than blue.
All the embroidery is silk ribbon, in different sizes, and white. I then colored the ribbons using my alcohol inks. What fun! I meant to take a picture of the back side because the ribbon was all white.
I did NOT stuff it enough!!! This is my first one, so the next one will be better.
Mother of pearl button in the center.
I crocheted a trim for it, and colored the outer edge with one of my alcohol pens.
This won’t be for sale in my little Etsy shop, as it doesn’t ‘pass muster’, ~ (idiomatic) To meet or exceed a particular standard. ~ (That’s a saying learned from being a US Navy wife.)
This morning my friend Shyrl and I loaded more iron and I am ready for a nap once again.
I hope you all have a great week ~ FlowerLady
