A little bit of everything.....

I only sewed one seam yesterday but I did a lot of other things: laundry, 30 minute brisk walk ending with shopping at the store - I don't want them to think I just come there to walk.  It is very hot with tropical humidity here now but I went out and cut volunteer trees and 4' tall Burdock weeds down.  At night I knit a little and I finished this dishcloth that used up the ends of 7 balls of yarn.
The Asiatic lilies are the dwarf variety that only get about 12" tall but have a bunch of blooms on top of each.  This one still has more buds.





This view shows the 2 plants that are blooming.  The other 2 are still tight buds so I'm still not sure what color.  When I bought them at the end of summer last year on clearance they had already bloomed so I had no idea what colors I was getting.  I need to clean out the violets and Creeping Charlie in this area but we are expecting extreme heat for the next 3 days and tropical humidity all 3 days too.  I try to pull a few weeds every day.
I usually pull out this plant because I think it is a weed but I decided to let it bloom this year and then I'll pull it.  It is a small plant.  The leaves to the right are Sedum and the one to the top left is a coral bell with big leaves.

Those golden lilies have blossomed in just a few days.

The plant with the blue flower looks like what I have in my vegetable garden - all over my vegetable garden. If it is the same plant, you should get rid of it now while you still can. I'm not sure pulling it really gets rid of it. I wonder if it leaves tiny roots in the ground that come back tenfold next time it rains.

What a fun dish cloth ! I know it feels good to use up the remainder of several skeins of yarn.

Your bright and sunny yellow lilies have brightened my rainy day here in the mountains. The weather kids did predicted 100% rain all day today and they were right this time. And it feels like an Illinois rain. Which is extremely rare here in the mountains.

Super duper hot and humid here, too -- if we haven't finished whatever it is by 9:30 am, then we have to wait for the following morning! Pretty, pretty flowers.

Busy summer days and beautiful garden . . . that's what the season is all about. Then again, we do want to include some lazy summer days, too :)
Happy weekend!

Can you share the pattern for the dishcloth? I love it. Thank you!

I think your little blue flowered plant might be Tradeescantia (wild spiderwort). It can be aggressive, so it's probably not a bad idea to keep it in check.
We're due for 90's the next two days with thunderstorms on Monday. We really need the rain here, but not the gully washer type they are predicting. We've had very little rain since late April and even the hardy plants are showing the effects.

It's really hot and humid here too. I'm trying to focus on indoor chores although we did finish removing one flower bed yesterday.

I am enjoying seeing all your projects and your beautiful flowers. I am glad to see I am not the only one using odds and ends for dishclothes!
