Beautiful Flowers This Year.

     Just had to get a post up here to show you the beautiful Azaleas this year.  I always look forward to them and we had to take a walk the other night just to see them in our neighborhood.  Here's a picture of Bill with some of them.  Aren't they beautiful? How inviting does this yard

look with all the beautiful colors?

     Our own roses are doing wonderful this year, and I can't believe the buds still yet to open.  I'm sure the cold winter we had down here has a lot to do with it for sure.

I finished up another facecloth.  Here's a picture so you can see the pretty color combination.  There are two little guest soaps with it.  These make up in an evening, so if you don't want to have to concentrate a lot but want to keep those hands moving, this is a cool project.  This one below is much bigger than it looks, as I have it folded for the picture.

I also finished up the small piece I was working on, and realized that I can show it before giving it away, as the only initials on it at this time, are my own!  I'll finish it off by making it into a pin cushion.

Now I just have my "Quaker Diamonds" that I'm working on, and hope to finish it up soon.  

Just one more picture before I go.  This is a happy picture and very colorful one.  I made a salad to go with dinner the other night, and the pepper and I had a few words, as he didn't want any part of it.  He did indeed get added to the dish, as I was bigger! His sad look nearly got me though!

I need to let ya'll go for this time.  You all mean so much to me and thank you for your kind comments also.  So until next time, stay well and safe, and don't forget to "feel the colors".

  6. Such lovely azaleas! So bright and cheery. The roses are flourishing beautifully. I like the happy pepper in your salad! Sister Stitcher is so sweet and will look great as a pincushion!

  7. Oh I do miss the azalaeas in the springtime. Such an over-abundance of colour - they seem unreal! Your roses look lovely and healthy as well. I love Mr Pepper - couldn't quite figure out what you were on about until I saw the photo!

  8. WOW! Those azaleas are amazing! I've never seen them grow so big or have so many blooms! They're gorgeous!

  9. I had an Aunt who lived in Mobile AL, and I went to visit once when the azaleas were blooming, pictures really don't do the abundance of colors justice. They are beautiful.
