A Quiet House Again

Thanks for all the family love! My sister and nieces have departed for their journey back to China, my brother and his daughter are heading back to Minneapolis, and all is quiet again… for awhile. I suppose everyone else’s houses are picking now with the school season upon us.

We spent lots of time shopping and playing in my mom’s beautiful backyard.

She has this gorgeous hydrangea bush full of big puff balls.

It’s full of flowers that seem bigger than softballs.

My mom brought home these gorgeous roses from the garden center she works at. I have never seen variegated roses, which I guess is a new experiment.

My drawing class starts a week from today, so I have a week left to get more patchwork projects made, to sew on labels, and take pictures of everything for my etsy shop.

Hope everyone enjoyed a wonderful weekend!

  1. It’s so difficult to see your family members leave. Your mother’s back yard garden is gorgeous, love all the flowers and the planter is awesome. She must have a green thumb.
