Garden , Garden, Garden..

The progress so far on my Attic 24 summer garden square blanket..I have never" joined as you go " until this blanket.. I do like the way it looks! ..

After 3 rounds of color , I add the light tan round and then am crocheting together with off white.




I have made a little more progress on the stocking.. the part I am doing now is the tree and so many color changes.. kind of hard to concentrate on it !


Some of my zinnias are blooming... all these were planted from seed..



I weeded the vegetable garden this week..It was so full of weeds ! We finally got some decent rain so it was easy to pull out the roots..before I was just breaking them off and they were coming back twice as big ! I still have no zucchini or cucumbers.. the last two years I had tons... The pole beans( on the right) that we should have on a higher fence are finally producing beans 

We are getting alot of tomatoes.. so far 22 pounds.  I have been roasting them and putting the sauce in the freezer.


Love these little yellow finches that come and land on the sunflowers  outside my kitchen window..


The coneflowers are putting on a pretty good show.. they must love the heat !

More zinnias !

This little munchkin is 4 months now.. Could he get any cuter !!!
Thanks for visiting my blog , I appreciate all your visits and comments !! I have fallen in love with Instagram .. come follow me @priscillablain..Have a great weekend !

I love the grannies! Great colors. The choice of color and how and where it's used is just SO important and can make or break the perfect project! I love that tan and white beside one another! Your four month cutie is JUST that! Don't you just eat him up? And, uhm....where did the four months go so darned quickly? Geez o peet! Your garden looks bountiful...and beautiful.

Absolutely love the wonderful mix of colors in that granny! I'm on a little crochet hiatus right now but when I'm in full crochet mode, I make lapghans for a couple of rehab facilities in our area and I have a couple of easy patterns I use. I think I'll add this to the mix!

Blessings,

Hi Priscilla, love your throw. It is so vintage looking. I do not crochet. Wish I did sometimes, but when I tried it I did it way too tight. The Christmas stocking does look tedious. It will be precious when finished. Love your Zinnias. Mine have been gorgeous this year also. I think we need to have a veggie swap. I have had lots of zuchinni and a few cucs but no ripe tomatoes yet. Getting close and I can't wait!
Hugs,
Jann

Beautiful, all of it! I am envious of those cone flowers. We planted coneflower seeds in a pot 3 years ago and it keeps coming back. This year it has bloomed the most. Love it!

Carol said...

Lovely progress on your blanket, Priscilla... such bright and happy colors!

And your garden is looking grand. Weird about no zucchini and cucumbers. While we were away at the beach last week, our zucchini went to town--you should see the size of one that my husband hauled out of the garden when we got home!!

Hello Priscilla: The crocheted blanket is so bright and pretty. And I loved seeing the finch on the sunflower--what a lovely sight to see out your kitchen window!

Beth said...

Priscilla - I've not crocheted in years and years - but your blanket inspires me - it is really charming. I like your garden very much - neat that it is bird-friendly too.

Thanks for stopping by. Love your granny ghan, the grannies are my new favorites. Can't seem to get enough of them. You Christmas stocking is just beautiful. I'll be starting a very small autumn piece in a stitch along I'm participating in. Your little one is a most handsome little man. Enjoying your blog, I'll be back! Have a wonderful day.

Very pretty! Love the colours. I am impressed that you are joining as you go. So I guess the colour placement this way is random? or is it planned? Lovely.
