Staying In the Shade
We are having hot temps already....Summertime heat is not for me. The cows and calves look for shade in between grazing and stopping to cool off with a drink from the ponds. This has been a very unusual year of weather.
During the day the garden needs weeding, flowers need a big gulp of water and the hummingbirds are busily darting to the various feeders.
Late in the evenings after working outside I have been enjoying the feel of my hook pulling wool as I work on a few more projects. This is a chairpad designed by Mad Hen.
Over the weekend Danny and I took a trip overnight and on the way home stopped by Turner Falls near Davis, Oklahoma. I use to swim in the falls as a kid...sure miss those days!
Here is a lil' dog I oxford punched for Sloan. The design is by Frank Bielec and yes he was on Trading Spaces. Such a fun guy to be around and he is so talented.
Sloan loved his treasure box!
Snips and Snails and Puppy Dog Tails....that is what Sloan is made of!
Our mimosa tree is blooming....It's my favorite tree of all. Loved climbing up them as a kid.
Two lil' birds have been pushed out of the nest and have been making a home on our porch. The mom flies in to feed them and hopefully they will take flight before a varmit finds them.
I found this whimsical guy while we were on our trip and he looks perfect overseeing the new flowerbed! He has a lot of attitude.
Sure hope all of you are staying cool and enjoying the early summer days....well I'm off to fire up the grill and water the tomatoes and the rest of the garden!
