I've promised my Mom that when she completes a stitch, I'll post it.  So here is her 2nd completion for 2010 - some kind of record for her!  It's an appropriately themed stitch for August too. 
 

Summer has returned - Wahoo!!!  This morning we have a few small, billowy clouds, but mostly blue sky, and it's supposed to hit 82F.  So I'm celebrating the better weather, and sharing a few new photos.

I think our barn swallows are repairing their nest and maybe going to fledge for a 2nd time - what a busy summer for them!

The morning light was very kind to my front porch gardening efforts - though I did notice that I need to get a broom and sweep up blossom debris.

The begonias are thriving...

I wonder how big this one might be, had not the deer munched on it earlier.

I love, love, love the contrast in the foliage of these two fuchsias.

The hostas and ferns are happy...

and so are the fuchsias!

"This is the day..." enjoy the day!
