week of the day lily

DSCN7635DSCN7644DSCN7653DSCN7651DSCN7640DSCN7645DSCN7642July is the month when the day lily border shines.  Although unweeded, it is still spectacular.  One learns to look beyond the wild raspberry canes to the gorgeous shades of Africa, of Sunday Gloves, of Bela Lugosi and all of the hyperions.  Most of these plants came from my mother’s original garden, divided and carefully transported to create a stunning display, like clockwork, each mid July.  I am learning to appreciate the beauty and let the weeds fade into the background … maybe next week … maybe not.  I have become what I dislike most in a gardener – lazy!

My LYS has a tent sale each summer and I try to put some of my small fabric needle cases in the shop.  DSCN7678DSCN7676DSCN7677DSCN7675DSCN7672Everyone wants one of Ayumi’s lunch baskets!  I make them as fast as I can, but cannot meet the demand.  When I grow weary of this pattern I remind myself that it funds my fabric addiction.  I sew, and the weeds flourish!

Today’s Buzz; ‘The bee is considered an emblem of Christ: his mildness and mercy on one side (honey) and his justice on the other (sting).’  – from The Beekeepers Bible

    oh I love daylilies too and they are indeed blooming as are the bee balm and blackeyed susans
    I love your basket……your fabric addiction….we should all be so stricken with your talent
    take care and leave the weeds be
