I Can't Stay Away!

I'm having fun working on "Let Freedom Ring".
I'll probably be able to finish it today.

Besides stitching, I continue to haunt our local nurseries.
And so back to Gray's Garden Center I went.

They have the most amazing display of cascading flowers lining their parking lot.  It is a hellishly hot and windy site along a very busy street.

And yet with drip irrigation, they've managed to create a wall of flowers!

Love this Rudbeckia

and this darling bird feeder

I was good - I did NOT buy another fuchsia!

Another cute bird feeder

and lots of dahlias.

I'm with Margaret. The teapots are awesome.

Love those teapot birdfeeders--especially the blue and white one!! Such pretty flowers--the cascading hanging baskets are unbelievably lush...

Your new start is very pretty, Beth. I've been seeing lots of red, white, and blue in my stitching lately, too!
