Flora and Fauna

This blog is supposed to be about needlearts of all kinds, but I am also an avid gardener. The garden is truly an inspiration for my needlearts. I have spent years collecting, planting, moving, removing, weeding, etc. And I love it. I do stroll in the garden every morning and evening, just to see what is the rain has brought to fruition for today. It has been a delightful diversion for me and very good for the soul. I hope you enjoy my photos. They are not the quality of Thomas at Walk the Wilderness nor Philip at PA Photography, nor so many others of you out there who do so much better with photography than me, but with my little point and shoot digital, it’s OK.

2009 May Flowers

My Weeping Japanese Maple is the pride of my garden…it’s nearly twenty years old.   I love my pink Japanese peony too.  There are Johnson’s Blue perennial geramiums, purple petunias, blue columbine, bright orange poppies, a “teenage” robin (who was just a baby a few days ago), and the ever annoying baby bunny rabbit who loves to feast on my greenery!

And as each week and day goes by, the garden is ever changing.   Today it is blue and orange and pink and red, and later other lovely colors will emerge.   Each bit just as exciting as the one before.

Like life…ever changing.   Forgive my lack of needlearts for today and enjoy my garden with me.    Averyclaire.


They Are Back!

I don’t know what happened. It’s almost as though someone went into my site and removed it. Anyway…they are back and I can visit all of you again. Thank Heavens!

My Favorites Are Gone!

Today I came on-line to visit all of my favorite places and found my list of favorites had disappeared! I certainly did NOT delete everyone. I wrote to WordPress and hope I have an answer soon. What a terrible thing not to be able to visit all my friends! I count on my list for quick visits to all of your sites. Hope they can fix it soon.
