Spring to Summer

Happy summer! We have been experiencing some very pretty weather. I've managed to get outside and take a few pictures, but mostly I've been inside sewing. I'm a bit disappointed in the garden this year. I've been so focused on my table runner that I haven't been spraying to keep the deer away.  They have enjoyed dining on my daylillies, which are (or would have been ) a big part of my garden right now.  I keep the gardener's mantra in my head...there's always next year.
This is the only thing I dislike about gardenias. They don't drop their petals and you end up with an unsightly bush full of dead blooms.  It's quite the chore to deadhead...especially if you're too busy having fun at the sewing machine!

I hope you're having a wonderful Saturday! Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Keeping a flower garden in shape is sometimes a full-time job.


  2. Your garden is gorgeous, I love all the pretty green. Here in the desert, things are starting to look really brown with all the heat. I also love all of your quilts, stunning. Hugs, Marty

  3. Your garden is so pretty, and I'd accept the dead-heading chore if I could grow gardenias here.
    Your sketch book is interesting - are you doodling or working on some more great embroidery designs?

    1. Lorrie, that is actually my daily journal. It's a sketch book that I doodle in, but leave room for writing. Here is a link to a post I did about them. You can see more pages there.

      Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great Monday.

  4. Lorrie, that is actually my daily journal. I just doodle in a sketch book, then I write daily on the pages. I take my journal with me where ever I go and doodle or write. Here is a link to a post about my journals...
