We planted this last year and have had our fingers crossed that it might bloom this year. Here is the very first flower (and there are more to come). We wanted a red one, but pink will do just fine!
Today Jack and I had a 'sanity' day whereby we just get in the car and go where the whim takes us. We've had a rash of thefts in our neighbourhood and have managed to lose over half of the new solar lights we had just purchased for our front yard. So...we got an on at dark, off at dawn attachment for our porch light today and hopefully that will save what's left of our solars once we move them into the back yard. However, NOW the rotters will be sure to see my three planters that are out there...can't win!
Jack was nice enough (or foolish enough, depending on your point of view) to let me stop at the bookstore and I managed to wander out with new new Somerset art quilting magazine, the new Sew Somerset AND the Cloth Paper Scissors Studio magazine. Sigh. I have NO will power. None. Zip. Zilch. I had promised myself most severely that I would ONLY ever buy the Sew Somerset and leave all the rest of them alone (other than maybe one Art Doll 1/4ly occasionally). However, how can I resist buying the art quilting one when there's a lovely article in there about Jude (who, by the way, is one of my worship-from-afar people)? AND, it's the first they've published and it's SURE to become a collectors item (isn't it??). As for the Studio magazine....well....it isn't half as expensive as the Somerset equivalent....no, I guess that's not a good excuse is it. Well, it's all Jack's fault for taking me in there in the first place!!!!
