Flower Garden

It's been over a week since I last blogged about something. Not much quilting going on, but I was very busy, busy planting stuff, that is. The temperature has been incredibly high all week. It feels like July. Lots of sunshine and humidity, but no rain! I did a lot of planting in my garden - and watering!

All the vegetables are in and the annuals have been planted in the front yard. I am trying some eggplant this year. Never tried to grow that before. I still have a lot of weeding to do, but that will have to be done slowly. It's just too hot out! Because we filled in our pool last year, I now have a couple of raised flower beds that need to be planted. Here is a picture of the iris I bought a few weeks ago. I didn't know what colour it would be, but I am not disappointed. This thing is beautiful! You can see the raised beds my husband made for me in the background. It will be much easier for me to plant things this way.


And here is a photo of my hexagon flower garden. These are the only things I got done as far as quilting is concerned.

The iris is beautiful and in a few weeks your garden must look gorgeous.
Great hexie flowers you made.

Love the iris, and your hexagon flowers look like the start of a lovely quilt. I've got a Grandma's flower garden quilt that I made about 33 years ago, all by hand out of recycled material.
