May 2016 Bloomers

Because of some health issues, working out in the yard and my plans for new flower beds have been put on hold for the past two summers. However I have been able to plant a few things. Here are a few things that are blooming.

New Blog

I have started a new blog Carol's World of Quilts and other Crafts.  Going to use this blog just for outdoor stuff mostly gardening of course.  I have been spending much of my time on my quilts for quite awhile as I had a project-to make all my grands and kids a throw size quilt.  I have that completed and now just making quilts for a few friends and maybe to sell.  Click over and see what all I have been doing!

I saw this on another gardening blog this morning.

To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich; to study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly; to listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart; to bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never. In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common. This is to be my symphony. William Henry Channing 1810-1884

Quick video of what we have in bloom

Here's a quick video I made of what we have in bloom right now.  

Already as hot as can be and the mosquitoes are attacking us every time we walk out the door.  Thanks so much for watching and I pray that you are blessed today!

Hugs!  Carol
