One of the things I’ve been most excited about this year is this poppy.

I planted it four years ago. It has come up faithfully every year, but has never given me a flower. This year, I have –count ’em– TWO!! It had a flower when I planted it, and I think it was a salmon color, but I can’t even remember.

Ali recently brought home some covered jars from clay class.

I just love these, and I love the colors that she chooses for her projects. They are resting on a mosaic table that I made last summer from broken dishes I’ve gathered.

Ali & Maddy just got back from seeing Shrek 2 and loved it. They especially liked Puss-In-Boots and were surprised to have recognized Julie Andrews as the voice of the Queen.

  1. Oooh! I’d love to see a better picture of that mosaic table. I’ve been “collecting” bits and pieces for one for a while now but haven’t had the inspiration to bring it all together yet.
    Love the garden photos, thanks so much for sharing! I’m envious of the wild lily of the valley that you picked a few entries back. We pay outrageous amounts here in California for it!

  2. What a lovely garden. I love your forget me nots. I used to live in Alaska, where they grew wild everywhere…being the state flower and all. Inspiring garden really.
    I would definately cast on for the front or back. You are already ahead of the game, so to speak, by finishing one sleeve.
