Goodies in my Garden

I've been busy busy busy helping my son with some projects for school so my crafty output has been very low. I did find time to finish my Fiber Optics Tequila Sunrise socks and will try to take some pictures tomorrow, if we have any sun. And that is a big if. I haven't seen any sun for days. Its been gray, cold and rainy yuck. Luckily I have some pictures of my garden goodies that I took last week.

Here are the first peony blooms in my garden.

Isn't that pink gorgeous. It is electric. These flowers seemed to be lit from within. Did you pick up on my change in tense? They were beautiful and then the rain came and beat the daylights out of them. Every single petal is gone - insert unhappy face.

Now this goodie should be pretty no matter what the weather.

My boys gave me this for Mother's Day. Those birds bob up and down and spin round and round with the breeze. I love it.

The one bird looks a bit like a chicken and it has little bumps on it like polka dot. Pretty cool, huh?

Along with school projects I've been battling with my laptop. It is dying. Let me bow my head and observe a moment of silence for this wonderful companion. Ok -- I've been complaining for weeks that I need a new laptop, however, in this house only certain people think they are capable of selecting and purchasing new electronics and this person has NOT been working on this. Getting a new laptop is a double edged sword. It will be great not to have to jiggle and wiggle the power cord so it makes a connection but I will have to learn the ins and outs of a new laptop. I don't like spending the time to learn what I need to know. Remember I'm ADHD I want to jump right in and speed off. Big sigh----ahhhh.

Happy stitching-

  1. Love those peonies...that could be a calendar picture...beautiful! Your chicken/bird whirly is wonderful!

  2. Such pretty flowers!!

    I hear you on the computer woes! I've been having a few of my own, and I'm so that technical that it drives me nuts. Getting a new computer always puts my head in a spin too because I just want get on it and go!!

  3. I know what you mean about getting a new computer.....I'm not fond of learning new electronics. It just seems to take too long! Sorry about your computer! I still need to order that iron.... I was planning on doing it today and yesterday and.....maybe tomorrow! Those flowers are/were beautiful. Great Mother's Day gift. So cute :-)

  4. Gorgeous peonies but I really love that gift from your boys. That is so cool!

  5. Blah; I hate it when the weather instantly sheds the prettiness of plants. :(

    Lovely new polka-dot-chickenish yard ornament. :)

    Good luck with next computer; I'm still saving up for mine. :D

  6. love your garden chicken - so cute
