"Having a stash of things is not junk, it’s inventory!" (source)
What a fun mail day when Penny's little box of treasures arrived!
I added another patch to my studio shirt
using some of the buttons!
And from Teresa!
I have to get busy and answer my mail.
I did make it to the Highland Open Studio on Sunday,
at least to Ricky and Teresa's open studio where several
artists displayed their work.
I had a chance to visit with an old friend that I only see every few years.
Carla had driven in from Texas, and it was so nice to catch up in person.
I've shown Teresa's lovely library several times,
but this time I listened to the live music, visited with a friend,
and admired their garden!
I wish I'd taken pictures, but...I was too busy talking.
Erin's birthday was Tuesday!
Our lovely daughter--
we are so proud of both our girls.
In our back yard, I'm loving the lantana.
Like the milkweed, lantana is fiesta in a flower.
The day lilies have had a great year,
but the buds are getting fewer now.
Does anyone know what this obnoxious bug is?
Last year, I found a bunch of them, but I don't know what they are.
I love the yarrow, but it is invasive and taking over a section of the garden.
Milkweed seeds--I've planted some and just blown most
into the breeze hoping they will find a fitting place to grow.
