beautiful blossom greeted me, first thing on Saturday morning.
Happily, there were already some great plants in our borders.
I've been adding new plants, as well.
You can see this large green plant above.
I have no idea what it is.
It reminds me of Virginia Creeper, but I don't think that's what it is.
I think, unless I can figure out what it is, I'm going to pull it all out.
It's quite invasive, and I could use the space to plant a few other things.
This is the new light fixture for the porch.
Aged copper, and I love the design!
That is the old fixture.
A family of birds had made this their resting perch, and has a nest built near by.
The previous owners let them build a nest and didn't mind the birds on the porch.
I am happy to have them move along to another nesting spot, and I'm glad that they took their messes with them.
We put an owl decoy with a bobble head on the porch, and that seems to have done the trick.
fabric that I am using in our kitchen.
Warm honey yellows, and herbal greens.
I finished the curtains last week, and this week I will be working on a table runner, and place mats.

Another sewing project for this week.
That is the mountain above our house, and the sunset lighting it up.
I think I shall never tire of the sunrises, and sunsets in our home between the mountains and the meadows.
Attitude of gratitude:
~I'm grateful for the Summertime. I love waking up to blue skies and sunshine!!
~I'm grateful that I was able to get a couple of tomato plants planted. It's not much, but due to the late start, I think it shall have to suffice. Our micro garden will be two tomato plants, and some basil and rosemary this year. Hoping next year to have a pumpkin patch again, and some garden space planted.
