well, it only took an hour...

to get this post ready to go...

the last of the iris right before they were dead headed this morning...

and the last batch of columbine...

they will soon fade away and go to seed like the others...

but as one thing fades, something else is just about to open...

and then there are some things that bloom forever...

now, here is the scarecrow down the street with its hat on...

there haven't been many birds at the feeders this week...
and here's why...

you can hear them singing happily in the mulberries...
there are 3 trees here for them...

we need rain...
the poor peonies are starting to scorch...

but they are still pretty...

went for a walk this morning early...

and we added a couple things here...

the gloves are washed and ready to go for the weekend...

and I made this valance yesterday, too...
along with the cushion covers...

its 2 vintage pillow cases sewn together and hemmed on the sides...
didn't take long at all...
Cheryl, do you remember these?

well, I have sit here long enough so going to go find some trouble to get into...
Craig's friend just showed up...
so I might have extra labor...
if I'm lucky...
;)

Like your columbine and your croquet set! Do you eat the mulberries? If so, what do you make with them? We have a mulberry tree and we let the birds have them. Those gloves with the blue dots look like a pet grooming glove that I purchased some time ago. Have a nice wknd, Tete. Hope you get that rain! I'd send you some if I could!

Save me some of those columbine seed, please and thank you.
I'll see if I can find any here, next year, but I have better luck with shared seed than out of packages.
