The garden beckoned. Before breakfast, the grass damp and cool under bare feet, I grabbed a few photos of flowers, dewy from their morning sprinkle. This dahlia is HUGE. It's not called a Dinner Plate Dahlia for nothing. Perfect creamy white blossoms.
Not really invasive, but slightly pushy, these Cornflower, or Mountain Bluet flowers pop up everywhere in my garden. The plants are easy enough to dig out if they grow somewhere I don't want them. I like their cheerful insouciance.
Fragrant phlox is just beginning to bloom, and survived transplanting amazingly well. I had them in a corner which is now a field of weeds as we're leveling out a spot for a new garden shed.
The always reliable hydrangea - how I love these bushes. They bloom all summer long, and then the blossoms dry beautifully for fall arrangements.
Today I'm at home, at my sewing machine. Finishing up some languishing UFOs and fitting a dress for a wedding in a couple of weeks. A puttery sort of day.
What's going on in your day?
