This blue hydrangea didn't look good in the early spring, but though it is smaller in height than usual, it is bursting with blooms.
I rescued this yellow hibiscus from a sales rack; it was shriveled up and desperate for water. Another hibiscus plant now looks equally green and healthy, but as of yet has failed to bloom. I buy my plants from regular garden centers, but I can't help sometimes checking out the bargains on the sale racks at Lowe's.
This little teapot was a quick craft project last week for my deck. If you have been following my blog, you may remember that I made two similar teapot features last summer. You may view them here and here. Those were a bit more involved than this simple little one which involved a string of clear beads, a dollar store teapot, E6000 glue, clear fishing line, and a small shepherd's hook.
My stand of bee balm did not fare well this winter, but a few stems have produced flowers. So far, no hummingbirds have been visiting them, but I really get a kick out of this flower. Doesn't it look like a hairdo for a punk rock star???
Quilting and stitching-wise I have been fairly lazy. I have 'ditched' quilted a few rows of the artful log cabin quilt begun in the Katie PM workshop and have begun a hand stitched wool project which will either be a tad late for the Fourth of July or very, very early for next year . :-)
How about you? Are the lazy days of summer making you lazy, too???
