But just another step to the left and you can see in this one that it's just our very own front yard. The little tree on the left is our Meyer Lemon and if you click and enlarge, you can see lots of flowers. The fragrance is beyond pretty, and I am hoping for lots and lots of lemons this year. You may remember that I took extra care in covering this little baby in the cold of winter and that has really paid off in an abundance of flowers. And the azalea on the right has just about finished its glorious bloom for another year. There are only a couple of weeks that they bloom, but oh, they make up for the shortness of the bloom season with the abundance of the blooms.
We've got some mighty pretty dogwood showing off in several areas of the yard right now. One of my neighbors gave me cuttings of hers several years ago after I admired it, and it has really taken off and proven itself worthy of ground space.
And these little native plum trees are just loaded with baby plums! I'm hoping for enough to can some jam.
I finished sewing together the little blue one I've been working on, but it needs to grow quite a bit bigger. Pondering on that and waiting for some fabric I've ordered to get here.
And here is another one I'm working on right now. My little Janome does the best job of blanket stitching! And it's a good thing, because my hand stitching is NOT all that!
I've got a fair number of the blocks done, just a few more, then trimming and on to the laying out. I love seeing a quilt come together, don't you?
We have a lovely, slightly cool overcast day here today. I love it. We've already begun to get pretty warm here, so this is a nice change for us.
Hope your day is absolutely perfect!
Hugs and kisses,
