Happy Tuesday....

Bleeding Hearts...
Isn't that picture amazing? Well, it is to me anyway.....

Here's another "stem" - I guess that's what you'd call it....

And here's the whole thing. Those blooms are just gorgeous, esp. up close. This plant has sat out in the weather for over 2 years and it just gets prettier & prettier. It wasn't covered for the winter or anything and look at the blooms. I guess it's happy and it certainly makes me smile to look at it. It's every prettier today - this was taken yesterday afternoon late. It's time to do something with the plants, but we are trying to wait until the pollen dies down a bit. EVERYTHING is yellow - including the air - I've never seen it so bad. :-(


And this is two blooms on an Orchid my mom gave me in Nov. Isn't it pretty?


AND I did stitch a bit on Sunday. I started this weeks & weeks ago, did the outline & a few more stitched & put it down. I decided it was time to finish it up and now I just need to decide how I want to "finish" it. It's Just Nan's Strawberry Heart done a piece of R&R fabric - not sure what color as it was a "scrap". I like how it turned out though! :-)

I hope to get some stitching and/or sewing done this afternoon. I have a few other things to work on first though, so we'll see how much I get accomplished today. Wish me luck!
Hope you have a wonderful day - thanks for stopping by & Happy Stitching!!

I've never seen bleeding hearts before! They are gorgeous - I wonder if we can get them here in the UK - research to be done here!

Do you owe me an email my friend? ;-)

Your Just Nan heart is beautiful Amy. The picture of your bleeding heart brings back many memories for me. We had one in our yard when I was a small child and I can remember playing with those little blooms and being so fascinated with that plant. I haven't seen one other than in pictures since I was a child. I really need to buy one for myself.
