Judy ~ Finally, but No Stitching or Knitting

You may be wondering where I've been. We are back from our trips, and the sun has been shining pretty consistently, so we've been outside in the garden, trying to clean up.  I have a number of projects in the works, but they are all going slowly. (And so is the clean up!)

This pretty azalea was a Mother's Day gift a few years ago from our son.  Every year since it has outdone itself with blossoms.  What you can't see in this photo is that it's a small tree!  You can, however, see the leaves that are everywhere, waiting to be raked.

Finally our dogwood decided to bloom!  When we brought it home, maybe four or five years ago, it was covered with flowers, and then nothing until last year when it graced us with ONE bloom.  What did we do differently?  Nothing!?  Maybe it took a while to feel at home?

Each year our trillium has a few more blossoms.  I love flowers! Are you surprised?

And here's someone else I love.  Stella's showing off her first haircut and modelling a sweater I made ages ago that finally fits!  Have a great week.

I remember seeing a picture of that cute little sweater! Perfect for spring weather. Your flowers are lovely. Our azaleas and dogwoods all over the city are about bloomed out. Might still be some in the high mountain passes.

Azaleas are so beautiful, but I don't see them here, guess it's too dry and the soil is too alkaline. We had trilliums in MI, haven't seen any since...36 years.
Stella is adorable.

Stella is the prettiest bloom in your garden! Love the azaleas, trillium and dogwood. My trilliums haven't broken through the ground yet.

All I needed was a picture of Stella! :-)

Lovely to see the flowers, and the biggest beautiful flower of all (Stella).
