It has been cold and rainy here this week...today it is much warmer...its really pretty outside. I went out to feed the birds this morning... I noticed a couple little roses blooming...this is a miniature rose...from Trader Joes...I have these all over my yard ...I don't know much about roses...except that I like them...and a little of their care. These guys don't have to be trimmed down as much as big roses...some of them have big bunches of flowers on one tiny stem...right now...this one has a couple blooms...
Right next to one of the bird feeders is this lilac...a California lilac...it grows on a trellis and blooms all February long...I just noticed all the buds...well...its almost February!
Here's a picture of the top of it...it will be so pretty in just a little while!
I also noticed that chives are starting to come back in the pot I grow them in...I have had these chives in this pot for years...over 10 years I think...its a good sized pot and they die back every winter...then start coming back up...I let them seed themselves...one reason because the flowers are so pretty...another because then I don't ever have to plant them again! It will be nice to have fresh chives again.
I have been working on this wool Valentine mat since Saturday...I started it at my sister's house as a fun sewing project with both of my sisters and a friend...I changed mine a little...I have just one more block and then sew all the blocks on and then back it...I have been doing this and other projects at once...I better get this one done...its almost February!
We went to Road to California and I had a nice time...but can you believe...I didn't take one picture! I guess I was having a nice time...it was a rainy day...really crowded...but fun! I got a couple new patterns...I guess I should take some pictures and show you what I got...and a few fat quarters and half yards of a couple fabrics I just HAD to get...not sure what I'll make...but they're here when I am ready...I also bought a few ribbons and buttons...I have been sewing every day...gardening when the weather permits...trimming our huge apple tree...all sorts of excitement here!!
Sunday we will have a booth at the Pasadena City College flea market...our second time...we will be in booth 384 if you happen to be in the area...it is supposed to be a nice day in Pasadena on Sunday...70 degrees and partly cloudy...we are in the parking structure...just in case you drop by!!
Until next time...enjoy your day!!!
