I don’t have much sewing, but a lot of growing going on here at the moment. My sons and Michael just removed some juniper bushes for me creating a very large space that I get to garden in. I used to call it the ‘Secret Garden’ because it was completely encircled with huge junipers. Now it has gone public so it will need a new name and a lot of new plants. The area is much larger than it looks in the picture measuring in at 37’ X 40’ and there are a lot of iris that I plan to move to other locations. It is very sunny there with a little afternoon shade, but not much. I am dreaming of all sorts of colorful perennials like salvias, rudbeckia, arctotis, and much much more. So I guess I am making a flower quilt in my mind right now, but not for long. I have a wedding quilt to start working on soon and the fabric that I ordered for it just arrived last week. It is for my son and his soon to be wife. I asked for color ideas and she picked beautiful dark jewel tones and lots of black. I have been playing with some ideas in EQ6 and have come up with several great ideas. Now if I could just plan my garden plot in EQ6…hmmm…now that’s a thought!
After a very long cold winter we finally planted our vegetable garden. I had a lot of fun designing the layout for that. It is sort of formal looking and quite different. We used the old satelite dish in the center as a gopher cage. It is 10’ across and is now my herb garden. Then we made 8 boxes lined with gopher wire and dug them in to border the herb garden. We have 31 tomatoes planted in them and some peppers and basil. There are 2 more beds to plant and the seeds are growing in the green house for much more.
Keep the growin’ goin’ on!
