238: Briefly … Doll Quilt Swap 9 Status and more flowers…

   busy week around here….above is a picture of my creation for the Doll Quilt Swap 9 …this picture was taken last week…and it is already further than this…and looking different already…

We were just at the beach the last few days, and I have a few pictures from that trip…but I don’t like to take the camera out in the sand and the salt water areas all that much so not a lot of pics were snapped.

Thought I would share these shots from our gardens a few months back as they are piling up on my laptop’s desktop…

     this gem is in our mowed grass and friends that pose as  lawn….love that this little thing flourishes in the total neglect it receives. 

This glorious plant is called Solomon’s Seal and Linda picked the original up 15 years ago or more at a local plant sale…we love the mystery of this plant…big leaves that pretty much hide these bells that dance along the stem….   

The dogwood was wonderful this year…not always do we get such prolific flowers on it… 

 This flower is another old favorite of ours….so detailed, yet so tiny!!   

and a few more….         

Have some great posts still to come….tomorrow  a contest of sorts for two nice big prize packs….a bunch of assorted fat quarters and layer cake squares….Guest Panel of Judges and everything…

Have a Marvelicious day my friends!! 

How’s your week coming along this week??

    I love the Solomons Seal, I’ve never seen them before. I’m going to look around our area to see if any nurserys sell them.

    I can’t see all the photos, the boxes on your side bar are covering them. Is it my computer or is there a way I can change it?

    Solomons Seal has always been a fave of mine too, I’m happy it will grow here in my city garden too. The yellow pom flowers used to grow in my moms backyard and I have always loved how seeing them makes me think of her. Thank you!

    Those are not Solomon’s Seal, which has white flowers and smooth leaves https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polygonatum_biflorum
