I commented how I loved all the flowers and color he had and that right now my new yard doesn't have color. But that's not to say David isn't dying to get in there and landscape. Trust me, he is he is. He's ready but he wants to wait until all the construction is done. Well sorta. He has already started working on a design for a flower bed just off the patio and has positioned the crepe myrtles he bought in the late fall to see how they'll look. He's now pondering what plants he'll fill in with.
Wait! Color! I remembered there's an Amaryllis blooming in the front yard. A single Amaryllis plant and it's really pretty. It came with the house. It's the only flower unless you count the Ligustrum bushes that are now starting to bloom.
They don’t smell so good but it’s color right? I looked around, nope nothing else to see here.
So I walked to the back yard. No Color has been planted in the ground but there's color in them there flower pots that we used to have around the pool from the old house.
Hey I at least found some color.
In Quilting news: See this little pile of thread. I've had bigger. Me and my sewing machine are not one. One of us have a problem and it's not me this time. The quilt is simple enough but thread keeps jamming and making a mess of my baby quilt. GRRRRR.
Partial Sneak peak below.
Can't post it here yet in case Lisa is reading. She and the hubby had a beautiful baby girl. Baby Abigail Victoria sounds so sweet and delicate I hope she don't mind a Texas Quilt Welcome. I hope to finish this up and get it to her before she turns 1. That's seems to be About my speed for quilting.
So until next blog.....
