I have a feeling we are going to go straight from winter to summer around here.  We have been so unusually  cold lately, and goodness, the wind has been creating all kinds of extra work ! We have a huge limb in the yard that we just haven't had the energy to deal with yet.  Thank goodness it didn't land on the house! Then there are the lesser limbs and sticks and leaves and squishy-squashy ground. But today the sky is a beautiful blue - the prettiest blue ever. No clouds. None. And the temperatures are more seasonable.  Yes, it was a lovely day. 

The school year is winding down and I am starting to get excited about my time off.  I'm thinking about what fun things I want to do while I have 5 weeks off.  I would love to make a small quilt, just a little throw. I've been looking for a pattern and haven't decided anything yet, though I do know I want to do it in autumn browns and golds.  It's an awful lot of fun to go Pinteresting looking for ideas:)  I am also going to continue working on my Christmas at Hawk Run Hollow cross stitch project.  I hope to do an update soon, I am finishing up May's block.  Can't wait to show you. 

I am so glad you stopped by (leave a comment, okay?).  I hope you're having a great Wednesday. I'm joining Outdoor Wednesday at A Southern Daydreamer.


  1. A lovely variety of shapes and textures on leaves, petals and ferns Leslie. Thanks for sharing and for stopping by my blog.

  2. Your photographs looks like you are doing a quilt. Very interesting blog. 5 weeks to do a small quilt. Know you can do it!

    1. Hi JM, thanks for stopping by! The quilt on the side bar is a Work in Progress that I'm still trying to decide how to finish. I'm just doing a wall hanging. I have 7 blocks done and am working on number 8. I'm not sure all the blocks look that good together. I've put it aside for now and am working on a year long cross stitch. I appreciate you taking the time to comment!

  3. You little pieces of beauty are just awesome! I hope summer gets here soon for you. We seem to be stuck in 'early autumn' mode here in New Zealand, but that doesn't hurt my feelings at all!

  4. Leslie, your post is Lovely. I too should have shared my hostas, They are huge and beautiful. The rain has put them on speed growth. I love the photo you shared with a peek at the hosta. Mine are the same color. Your photo is a work of art. I also liked the grass in the potting dish photo. what ever Spring we have I'll enjoy it to the fullest.

    Wishing you happy days.
    xo, Jeanne

  6. Beautiful garden and photos.

  7. What a pretty sight to see! Even if you sat in your garden for 5 weeks straight, your time wouldn't be wasted!


  8. Such lush and healthy hosta!
    Your projects sound interesting - no matter what you choose to do, just having the time to plan and work on a project through to the end would be a treat.

  9. Hello, I've just had a "look" at your lovely flower garden, it is really pretty. Good luck with your quilting and I hope you have a wonderful five weeks break from school.
