Spring Garden

Most of us love Spring, except maybe those who really suffer from allergies.  Here are a few shots taken today in our garden--I get the camera out the day I first see a water lily bloom:

I do love irises and have lots of them.  My husband wants to pull them all out because they spread.  So far I am winning this battle but it's tough.

I'm doing lots of quilty things so by the end of the week I should have the first two rows of The Splendid Sampler assembled, the Scrapbasket Sampler assembled and perhaps the applique' done on it, and I might even have some of the Rajah Revisited paper pieced border underway.

Let's Quilt!



  1. Lovely garden, I love iris, too!
    Looks like you are a diligent gardener. The results speak for themselves.

    1. Thanks, it's mostly husband wgpho does the grunt work--I'm the project manager.

  2. Oh please don't let him take out your irises!! I ashore them and had masses when we lived in the South Island of New Zealand, they don't grow well in the warmer Northern parts. Your Spring garden photos are a feast for the eyes of this gardener heading into mid Autumn!

  3. I love easy to take care of irises. :) Hope you get your quilting time in.
