Another nice day...........

It was another beautiful low humidity day with a nice breeze so I mowed the lawn.  It had been 12 days since I last mowed because we haven't had rain.  The only sewing room activity was cutting the preemie gowns for Monday's sewing circle at church.  I cut three sizes and still need to cut all of the receiving blankets to go with them.  There is a link to the pattern in my Label list, right sidebar.
The last batches of perennials that I planted are doing well.  I didn't expect the Delphinium to bloom again since it had been cut back and was half price.  I hope it makes it through the winter.








The orange Coneflower with the shaggy center had a lot of little buds so I hoped they would bloom.  This one is just opening and another down below is just starting to open too.  Next to it is the Zebrina.  Behind it, the spotted leaves is the Lungwort/Pulmonaria.
The little Carnations are starting to re-bloom too.  This is the prettiest of the 3 so far.

We've had rain all around us, but it seems to miss our little yard. It's very dry here and last night we had to water everything. The trees are losing some leaves already and things are turning color, an early fall. Your plants look really good, love flower gardens.

Great flowers. It had rained a bit while I was gone so things are still flowering although some things look a bit ratty. Hope to do some sprucing up today.

Nice Sunday post. . . Your premie gowns always warms my heart. I know your group at church stitches a lot of love into every little gown. Fun to see a second bloom on your perennials.

Beautiful flowers - they're giving me more ideas for the quilt I'm currently working on. Your blog is definitely a source of inspiration!
