Oh look! I had to have it asap, so bought the chart on Beth Twist's Etsy site. I can't wait to stitch the Western Tanagers.
But first I need to finish up my mourning doves. Receiving the chart inspired me to work on this and I finished up the second dove and the blue vase.
I've not posted much on my gardening endeavors this summer. So here we go...
The cooler, milder weather has made for wonderful gardening.
My fuchsias are so much happier than they were last year.
As are the begonias...
...and the hostas.
I am really pleased with my begonias.
Lots of good color.
The ferns and the hostas are doing well - I just need to hold back a bit on watering them. Cooler temps and a north-facing porch means they do not need to be watered nearly as often as the plants on the south patio.
Ornamental bird house.
This fuchsia has bloomed non-stop since early May.
Blues and greens.
In the flowerbeds the red frilly poppies continue to bloom.
The sweet peas are fragrant and colorful.
I have hummingbirds and swallowtail butterflies in the verbena.
These are the best smelling lilies ever!
