Not in full bloom…

The duckies have a new pool…


They are in it almost constantly. Of course they scarpered when I came out to photograph them! The blue pool was getting a bit ridiculous as they had outgrown it and were swimming in circles, like one of those carnival games at the fair. Thank you H! He got a good deal on it, found it on sale.

The rain has brought out some more beauty in this large sunflower seed head…


I love the whispery, papery texture. I’m glad I let them grow. H calls them “weeds.”


Another look at that large plant with the tiny aster-sized flowers…


No bugs on it today. Perhaps the rain washed them away?

My seedlings are looking nice, except that two of them were obliterated during the night, a yellow pear and brandy wine eaten right town to the stalks and cotyledons.


I don’t mind so much about the brandy wine as I have lots of them. But I only have a couple of yellow pear.

I searched but could not find the culprit. They were kept in the duck house during the rains, so I am hoping TG&Y ate the guilty parties. Also hoping for no more plant casualties. I might spray them later with some non-toxic bug repellant.

On the stitching front, today has been a nice day for it. I’m not feeling too inspired to go and DO more, so stitching it is. More fill work completed on the moth. I think it looks more finished now and not so busy…


Words were added to the Word Cloth yesterday…


And this heart’s not yet in full bloom…


I feel like that today.
