Summer days around here are so lazy, it’s hard to find much to blog about. Anyone else feeling the pain? I’m pressing on with my beehive UFO — now I’m working on the borders. I took some of my little half-square triangles out onto the patio tonight to trim them up. (Love that little swivel table.)
I love being outside. I’d move my sewing room out there if I could. It’s nice to be outside where I can enjoy my flowers.
Lots of pretty daisies this year.
Oops…ugliness slipped in. More bunny carnage — hostas taken hostage — most of them didn’t make it out alive.
We have a bumper crop of coneflowers this year though.
Thankfully, the varmints aren’t chomping on these little beauties. I think the daisy/coneflower families are my favorite flowers. Although, I do love hydrangeas. And lilacs. And probably some others.
The bumblebees seem partial to the coneflowers though. Those orange buttons are full of yummy, powdery pollen and the bumblebees are picking them clean this year. It’s fun to sit and watch them busily flit from flower to flower.
And look. Another small visitor to my quilt squares. I think she was flirting with the little bee on the right side of the fabric.
Zip. Zip. Turn. Zip. Zip. New block.
Zip. Zip. Turn. Zip. SWAT!
No, not the butterfly. Mosquitos.
I only made it through that little green pile before I had to admit defeat and come inside. ;-(
