Friday in Green

P1010082bThis is a little bunny that hangs out near the garden. It’s growing quite fast. I figure the pin wheels and pie pans are the only things keeping it out of the garden. Thank goodness there’s lots of nice clover and grass in the yard for it to feed on.

P1000985The honeysuckle vines are blooming. The air is very sweet & aromatic right now.

P1010225I saw this pretty little wild strawberry growing in a day-lily. I’ve never eaten a wild strawberry.  I like seeing them and think they’re charming.
P1000574This funny looking orange fuzzy ball growing in a cedar tree is called ‘cedar-apple rust’. It’s a strange part of a disease that requires two hosts, a cedar or juniper tree and an apple tree, for the disease to complete it’s cycle and cause damage. It releases spores that infect apple trees and ruin the crop. Fortunately, we don’t have any apple trees to worry about.

P1010541It’s the sad end of the season for the beautiful peony blooms. They’re on their way to the long winters rest.

P1010568My first squash bloom bud and it’s a female. Hopefully, It won’t be long until we’ll get to try these new variety of squash.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!


Doe, Honeysuckle & Crafts

IMG_1829Looks like there’s going to be a new fawn in the neighborhood in the next few weeks. This doe and a young buck came strolling across our land. I wasn’t fast enough to get a good photo of the young buck, but I did manage to get this fairly good photo of the doe. She’s a really good size deer. I hope she’ll bring her baby by sometime. and I hope I can get photos of it.


IMG_1571Every time I step out of the door I’m greeted with the sweet aroma of honeysuckle. It’s really spread alot more this year than previous years. It must’ve been a perfect winter for it to flourish.


IMG_084900kI’m trying to make a project using these colors, but so far I have had to salvage two attempts. Sooo, maybe it’ll be 3-times-charm and I’ll actually get my project finished and can share it here soon.


2014-memdayHave you ever finished a craft and as you look at it, you feel like something’s missing.That’s what happened to me with my Memorial day wreath. I like it and thought it was finished. I displayed on my wall and on my blog, but something about it bugged me.
Well, today as I was getting some supplies together for another craft, I had one of those ‘Aha!’ moments and it clicked what was missing on the wreath… it needed gold trim around the roses to make them stand out more.
It alot of work, but I got the trim on.
I updated the photo in the sidebar and the original post .
I’m much happier with it now. I hope it looks better. 🙂


This is all for me at the moment.

Wishing you all a great rest of the week!
