Maybe Spring?

Maybe Spring has come? For more then one day? I sure hope so. When I got home last night, this is what I saw. So pretty. I built this rock garden with my father, one pickup truck full of rocks at a time. We would see a construction site and zip in with his truck and load it up until it couldn't hold anymore and then go to my house and lug these big rocks off. I like a wild, natural look to my gardens so I do a little weed control, but not much of anything else. The rock garden is about 60-65 feet long and used to be just a bank, full of weeds and a little gravel as the previous owners never took care of the yard.

The mossy stuff just moved in itself. Now there are a ton of wild violets. This is the first year since I've lived here (5 years now) that the violets are so thick.

Over the weekend, I got Block 5 done in the Birds of a Feather quilt and I've prepped Block 6. As you can see, its more of that bias stem -- all the rest of the blocks are just loaded with it. It's not that difficult to sew, it's just the ironing of it that gets to me. Later in the week, I'll have pics of Come Into the Garden Maud -- Maud's garden is starting to take shape, just like my own garden.

I love the rock path/area. The mossy stuff is very cool. It sounds like a huge garden area. Enjoy it!!!!

Lesa, That's going to be a very nice quilt when you're done with it.....a big undertaking though to do all those stems!

Where is the "reply" button found on blogger? I don't know whether mine is activated or not....not very techie, am I?

We got our Ginger from Cat City which is operated by PAWS. Someone had returned her after she was past the cute kitten stage...I guess some people do that. I agree with you that there are lots of cats waiting to be rescued!
