Baby & Blooms

Before I get to the blooms and the baby, when my family was in Myrtle Beach they went to a place called Medieval Times. I had never heard of it but I put the link in there if you wanted to visit the website, where there is a short video of what the show is like. I was simply blown away.  It’s a dinner theater with knights on horses, jousting, and more.

Their area was rooting for the green knight.

My DIL told me that the food was served as if it was back then as well….huge chunks of meat, corn, etc. and no utensils to eat them with, served by ‘wenches’ :)

I finished a baby quilt awhile ago for friends. While I tied it, I did quilt the big brother and sister’s hands in to it.   They were thrilled to see their hands and it made the quilt special for them as well as for the baby.

Well he arrived a few weeks ago and is just as cute as his siblings. His mama sent this to me on Facebook though I hope to see him in person soon.

I have morning glory and hyacinth bean vine climbing, tomatoes growing nicely and here are a few of the perennials in bloom right now…

The trumpet vine is just loaded with blooms this year. I filled an entire garbage can with some of it….on my neighbor’s side of the fence, but I am letting it go on my side.

That’s my son’s dog Merle who I kept here while they were on vacation.

A few steps back…..

That purple rose of sharon loves to grow. No matter how much I trim, it seems to double in size the following year.  It’s all that I can see from my dining room windows.

The same for the pink on in the back….my view from the back porch :

The bees just love these bushes!

We finally got a break from the prolonged heat wave. It still went to 89 degrees the last two days but the nights cooled off a bit which was a relief :)
