Consider Now The Lilies...

Turk's Cap Lilies


They neither toil nor reap, yet they are clothed with beauty.  
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The time of the towering Lilies is here.  I wish I could have managed to take a picture of the chipmunk climbing these tall stems to get at the black seeds...

A Honey of A Car

 This vintage Chevrolet convertable was in the grocery store parking lot, and I thought it was just beautiful.  Someone says it's probably a 1957 Chevrolet.  Cars sure had more class way back then.

Echinacea

 



 







These cheery coneflowers are so delightful.  I was glad they decided to bloom, being newcomers to the garden last year.

Mug Rugs or Snack Mats?

Recently I enjoyed an exchange with a few artsy friends.  At first I thought "Mug Rugs" were coasters, but it turns out they are in between a pot holder and a place mat.  How fun to get back into sewing.  Mine turned out to be 8-inch square reversible mini-quilts with tea-bag pockets on the back and some thin batting for cushion.  Now I want to make more!
