...and a Happy Sunday to all! I hope you are enjoying a fine Sunday whether you are celebrating Mother's Day or not where you live!
I have been very busy, with the garden but not with stitching or anything else! It's fun to be outside in the fresh air and sunshine. Luckily I do have some stitching to share with you on this post so I shall start with that.
First up, a wonderful surprise came in the mail, from sweet Anne. I had shared some of my linen stash with Anne last year and this was a thank you gift. She included an extra treat of the lace trim. Thank you Anne! I love what you made for me. Beautiful work!
Here's my progress on Nellie's Garden Revisited. As you can tell I haven't been doing much stitching lately!
Next up are a trio of tree peonies in full bloom this week. The yellow is a Tibetan tree peony and it's the first time it's bloom in the eight years it's been planted!
This red peony is gigantic and has over two dozen blooms this year! It is very happy basking in a position where it gets lots of sunshine!
This pink peony is my favourite. It is so delicate and pretty! It is tucked away in a corner of the garden and doesn't get so much sun so there are only two blooms this year but on it's very spectacular!
We've noticed a pair of chickadees nesting close to the house. They take turns sitting on the wire outside this window where someone else is keeping a close eye on them!
Daisy asks "Oh Mom, can I have one of those to play with?" (No, dear.)
This week has just flown by and by doing this post I realized I have to finish an exchange piece and get it out by Tuesday! Yikes! Thank goodness it's stitched. I just have to do the finishing so that should not be a problem.
Thank you for your visits. It's always a treat to read your comments! Here's a vase of lewisia to say goodbye. The wonderful colour combination of these flowers just bowl me over!
Have a wonderful week!
