Hello! How was your weekend? I am happy as my Stargazer Lilies are starting to open up. It's one of my favorite flowers.
We have one really big pot of them and every year they faithfully grow.
Our garden is growing around our garden shed. I have good news. We have made arrangements for new blue metal roofs to be installed on the shed and our garage/barn sometime in August. No more moss on their roofs!
Late afternoon sunshine on the shed. The petunias Dayle planted in the window box pots are doing well and look so pretty. My son Travis actually built the shelves for the pots for me many years ago.
Our Hollyhock is lazy and is leaning over. :-)
I think our creeping myrtle needs taming.. it's taking over the pond.
I recently found a smaller wood box to keep some of my small things nearby. It's made by Frye's and joins my bigger one I've had for years. They are called Shaker boxes.
I got a surprise in the mail a few days ago, this is a darling needle keeper made by my blog friend Taci. Isn't this wonderful and thoughtful? I will get a lot of use out of this when I'm hand sewing.
See how the magnet holds your needle between threading?
It came in this cute little metal box. What a treasure! Thank you Taci!! If you are interested in buying one, let me know.
It was almost 100 degrees yesterday, I ventured outside to take a few photos and am in love with this Gladiola.
There is a bright red one beginning to bloom next to it which I'll get a photo of as soon as they open up.
Two of the sunflowers we planted are getting tall! See them in the back right? And on the left the tomatoes are almost as tall as our 10 feet tall windmill!

So. I twirl my hair and put it up with a barrette.. and the little pouf that sits on my head was getting a bit long. So I decided to take my hair cutting scissors and just snip off the long strands. Voila, I am now cutting my own hair! I did my bangs next.
Just look at Kristi's harvest from one day! I'm so amazed and impressed!
Just something for you to think about.

OK.. my work is done.. flowers, friends, fun things and... revolution. LOL!! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
