hi and good afternoon!
this afternoon i just want to give all those snowed, fogged, and cold, grey day folks...
a slice of summer.
there is nothing quite like a crepe myrtle blossom laden bough
reaching up to the summer blue sky
to lift the winter heavy spirits.
only a few short weeks now
and winter will flee for all of you northern people
and colour, perfume, green green leaves,
buds and blossoms
will be the order of the day!
i loaded up the washing machine and fed the worms
and then saw this crepe myrtle
and just had to capture a summer morning!
you are now standing with me in my back yard
my little palm tree
and the lawn
have loved the summer rains.
yesterday i finished two more cushions...
this is the small 'berkeley'
with non-matching buttons!
and a yellow elephant.
'big berkeley' has an unembellished front
just a final glimpse of summer flowers
from my front yard...
i'm not sure what this pretty baby is called
but she is showy and very hardy
and minds the front gate!
many summer dreams to you!
naturally Carol xox
if you would like to make cushion covers for the flood affected people of queensland
please leave a comment or send me an email...many thanks!
