I’m still working away on the Summer Picnic Dish arc/melon combos. Only eight more to make and I’ll be ready to put the rings together and add them to the body of the quilt top! So with any luck, by the time our long Thanksgiving weekend is over I will be finished making the melon/arc combos.
Rather than show another picture of the melon/arc combos, I thought it might be fun to see some pictures of the flowers still blooming that we saw while out for walks Tuesday and yesterday. It may have been the summer that wasn’t, but this fall has been absolutely glorious. Being able to walk outside in October in summer-weight cotton clothing is a fabulous treat.
On Tuesday we walked to the vet’s to get Baxter’s food. And on the way back, we saw these flowers outside an office building
And these. The leaves on the tree on the roof garden that’s right outside our living room window are still green too. So between the lovely mild weather and the flowers and leaves on the trees, it doesn’t feel or look like October!
Yesterday I had an appointment and, as I was coming home, was taking pictures of the flowers I saw along the way. These were in a planter outside an office building.
And these lovely little flowers are still blooming in the flowerbeds at the entrance to our building. It was windy, so it was rather hard to get a good shot but there are many buds still to open. There are also some larger, deeper pink ones but there was no way I could get a good shot of them.
This is my 1,400th post! When I started this blog back in 2007, never in my wildest dreams did I imagine writing so many posts. I think this calls for a giveaway. And I am going to think about just what that giveaway will be over the weekend while I work on the melon/arc combos. Watch this space! Sometime next week I will announce what the giveaway will be.
