Sunday Chat – Garden and Football

We had a rare day where the temps were lower last week. Waking up early, it was interesting to see the fog in the valley. The mornings have been cool, but humid lately. In the garden, my one squash is still growing, for now. But it doesn't seem to be getting ripe. Same for the …

Sunday Chat – Book Reviews and the Garden

In the garden this week, the apricot gladiolas have come into full bloom. There are a bunch of them dotted over the mountainside behind our home. Some, I think, were planted by the previous owners of this house, but some must be squirrel planted as there are more of them every year. I have dug …

Sunday Garden and a Drive

It has been really hot everywhere, and seems like we will have more days in the 90s this year than ever before. I hate this heat, it just makes me miserable. When it gets above 78 degrees F (25 C), I am ready for it to cool down. I am happiest when the temps are …

In the Sewing Room and the Garden

I had all good intentions of getting some sewing done this past weekend, but you know what happens sometimes to best laid plans.

Sunday Chat – Wildlife, the Garden and a Gift Basket

Once again, we've had a busy week with yet one more quick trip to Atlanta among appointments and planning a big event that was held yesterday. I'll have more on that for you in a day or so. In the heat this week, my daylilies decided it was time to start their show. I got …

June in the Garden, On the Veranda

Planting pots and my veggie garden the past two weeks was a lot of work. On a cool morning, I got out early to do the heavy work while it was still nice outside. It warmed up fast, though. First up was to pull the weeds in the front flowerbed. Luckily, there weren't too many, …

A Bit of Sewing, Stamping and Gardening

Small projects were the focus over the past couple of weeks as I haven't had any big blocks of time available to get into the basement sewing and crafting room. What time I have had was devoted to getting things ready for the quilt show, and that included deciding what I was willing to sell, …
