Hello again.  I still seem to be stalled when it comes to creative pursuits, so I thought I would let you see some of the color that has emerged in my small flower gardens.  Everything is growing like crazy, and what used to be a sparse plot of plants has now gotten very crowded.  I'm sure I should do something about that, but since I'm barely a gardener at all, I'm a bit hesitant to disturb things as they are.  

As in most years, our azalea led the way with some riotous color Memorial Day weekend.

Every year I get so many nice compliments and comments about this plant!  Good thing it's idiot-proof.

Sticking with the pink/purple theme, we've got some irises;



and a couple of virburnum, which is new to me.

As a change of pace, I also have several day lilies;

and our fairly old rose bush, which usually has only one or two buds a year (which get promptly eaten by deer), this year seems to have many more blooms so far, though I only took a photo of one.

Lastly is a recent photo of Dinger, who belonged to my father-in-law until he passed away a few years ago.  Dinger has been a, um, challenging cat, but we do the best we can to keep him happy.  I just purchased a new cardboard scratching thing, and he was quite curious right away.

As for weaving, I have the next project all planned out, I just cannot get myself to start measuring the warp.  Once I do, I'm sure I will work on it regularly.  In the meantime, we have a family birthday Saturday, Father's Day Sunday, and another family birthday on Monday, so it will be a busy weekend for sure.  Next week is full of appointments, but maybe after that I can get myself in gear to get to the loom.  Until next time...
