I am hitting the road this weekend for my first quilting retreat which is at Gruber’sQuilt Shop in St. Cloud, MN (yes, it will be a six-hour drive!). I thought it might be nice to leave you with some garden updates until I return. We’ve had some bizarre weather around here lately – cold temperatures (60s), then five days of dreary overcast mist and rain, now it’s hot and humid! It’s hard to keep up with our yard in between all that.

Our beautiful lilies opened this week. I sure wish we had more of these lovelies!

Our clematis is doing very well this year too.

Finally, our daylilies have started to bloom. We received a whole bunch of these from my mom a couple years ago, so I should have more colors to share in the weeks ahead.

Enjoy this fine summer weekend, my friends! I hope to come back with pictures and stories from a weekend of quilting, shopping, eating and visiting.

  1. Hope you have a great weekend. Here I’ve been doing a little shop hop. It’s been fun should finish it up today.

  2. Enjoy your weekend!! I’ve never done a quilt retreat before, it actually is a little intimidating! You’ll have to show pictures 🙂

  3. Drive safe and have lots of fun Terri. Will you be taking a side trip over to the Mall of America? I know the temptation would be too great for me and I’d have to do it.

  4. Those lilies are such a beautiful color! Hope you have a joyful week-end full of laughter and learning!!

  5. I can’t wait to hear about your retreat! Your flowers look wonderful, the clematis is doing great!

    Take care, I hope the weekend is great!
