Flowers n' stuff...
...a few new blooms that I love! My irises were a bit iffy this year, since last fall I had a big iris borer problem so I had to dig up rhizomes, cut off infected parts and replant. I'm scared some of my special hybrid colors are not coming back, but you can't go wrong with old fashioned purples! The big solid purple ones are heirlooms from my Momma's backyard....I can't look at them without thinking of her :) The pink clematis is also a favorite!
This shot is from Ben's first Boy Scout meeting...they had their own bridge ceremony. I like his face in this photo...he looks like he is has a secret!
These are patterned copper (thanks Keirsten, for tips!), embellished with stacked dapped and enameled disks...totally an experiment, and all mine, since they are not weighted right and therefore hang askew, plus the errant blob of white enamel. I like the idea, though, so will be playing around with more!
Just a few rambling thoughts for Monday...I have loads of things to do around the house and garden, plus a couple of deadlines for custom work and Sally Russick's One Crayon Color Challenge...color me green, and it is my day on Thursday for Earrings Everyday, so check back in!
What about you? What is on your agenda for the week?
