Rainy Days

Sugar won’t need her sprinkling can today; it’ll be a rain-filled thunderstorming kind of day here in northern Illinois.

Spring Garden 9 cell Collage poemThese dresses are from 2014.  Sugar’s itty bitty everlasting embroidered bulb garden is filled with daffodils, tulips, hyacinths, and grape hyacinths.

Sugar is a tiny Fairyland Pukipuki BJD.  You can find them here.

How is your garden growing?  Sugar and I would love to know.

    How’s that knitting hand doing? Haven’t seen any posts in awhile.
    We’re overrun with weeds here. Endless. Lots of roses blooming right now. Yard needs lots of time that we don’t have. Wish it looked like it used to.

      Hi, Joy. Sorry about my post delinquency, dry spell, I guess. My knitting hand is fine, but I’ve been working at a snail’s pace. I’ve made a hat which I need to find a home for, bad color for us. I’m working on a pair of socks, too. I’ve sewn another dress for the shoeboxes. Nothing new for the girls in awhile.
      Your roses sound lovely; I can smell them all the way over here! Ah, weeds… those darned things. We’re not into the gardening thing any longer either.
      Thanks for replying. It was nice chatting with you, Joy.

    In Michigan our spring is beautiful. The redbud trees in the yard are at their peak. The forsythia are almost turned to green. I few spring bulbs are still blooming. Now to plan our yard. Last year we sustained straight line winds which took down two massive maple trees in our back yard. This has change our yard from almost full shade to full sun. I miss the privacy they supplied and am now contemplating which small trees, bushes and perennials to plant. I think I will take it in stages.

      Hi, Lynn. Wow, that must have been some wind to take down your two maple trees. Now you have a brand new start in your yard. Yes, a lot of work though. You’ve got it right to take it in stages. The description you paint of what’s in bloom right now sounds just so pretty. Have fun planning your new yard. ❤

    Good morning Cindy. The cooler weather is starting to kick in here in Tamworth Australia. We have been enjoying a lovely warm autumn so far. I have had a beautiful late flush of blooms on my roses. I also have fruit on my young passionfruit vine which is not expected here at this time of the year. Hope they make it ti the eating stage. We desperately need rain though. We are experiencing a drought at this time and have water restrictions in place so it is difficult keeping all of my plants alive.
    I have been kept busy knitting rugs for family members, for Christmas. Still have two to make. I am taking a break from the dolls at the moment to concentrate on the rugs. ☺🌷

      Hi, Wendy. Whenever you mention your opposite season to ours I feel like Alice in Wonderland; I never can really get used to it. Your roses and passionfruit vine sound so pretty. I hope you can get a bit of rain for your plants soon.
      You really have a head start on Christmas presents. Congrats! I have never ever got such a head start. When November rolls around I always wish I had done more.
      Thanks for staying in touch. ❤
