This is another great
orchid that has opened.
The petals have tiny
hairs on them.

This is a beautiful phalenopsis
orchid that Megan gave me
for Mother's Day last year. I
am so glad it is blooming again.
It is really gorgeous.

Megan and Steve were home for the weekend and
cleaned out an old garden. Steve really worked hard
and found all the stone that was covered. Megan helped
rake all the gardens in the back.
Wednesday I planted the new roses and lilies. I planted
some gladiola bulbs too. Hope they come up.
The flower is called agapanthus. Both have opened now.

This is Lucia. Her sister Cleo has been drinking
out of the faucet forever. She has finally taught
Lucia how to do it.

This is Apres Monet's Garden
the piece I just completed.
I love Irises.
This is the white one and it is opening even more now.

Laughing now..... No it did not turn blue and I didn't paint it.
I just didn't know that the bulbs in the pot had both flower colors
in it. This is the second bud to open and it is definitely blue.

My gardenia is going crazy with blooms.
This is just one side of the plant.
The patio smells heavenly.

Mirror image nappers.....
This is a new flower opening.
Interesting, I think it is in the alum
family, but it was supposed to be blue.

The swifts are still busy in and out of the
chimney. No babies yet. I see the parents
flying when I walk in the morning. They
are very fast and catch insects in flight.

Here is a detail of the Iris piece I am working on.
It is almost finished, just needs quilting.
