A few weeks ago I was looking at the "Sew Somerset Magazine" and discovered within the first few pages an articled called, "Tree Tales" By Michala Gyetvai. I immediately recognized Michala wool art from her blog called "Kayla Coo". Michala wool art is truly beautiful and her article was a pleasure to read. I sent a message to Michala asking her if she would create a "Heart, Roses and Lavender" brooch for me and of course she kindly said, yes. Above is an up close photo of Michala magical work. I love it and thank you Michala for creating it just for me.
Michala also included a lovely landscape note card of her beautiful felting. The white wool in the sky looks like the Northern Lights to me. To me I imagine the fields look like they are in full bloom with Lavender and Roses. The photo is taken on a wool felted piece I made last summer. I still have not decided what to do with it. Any ideas???
The above photo is an up close of the lovely wool felted note card. Isn't it truly gorgeous.
I hope you all do not get bored seeing photos of my lovely blooms. This is the forth summer for my flower gardens and they truly are the best I have seen them yet. Infact, my gardens here are the best I have ever had in my life. I walked around today smiling thinking to myself how very pleased and proud I am of my gardens this year. The above is a "Siloam Double Classic Day Lily. It is a delicate apricot color that is so pretty.
This lovely Day Lily is called, "Spiritual Corridor"! I love Day Lilies and I still have 8 more different ones ready to bloom in the near future. Last year the only ones I saw bloom was the ones planted next to the house. The rest of them in my other gardens was eaten by the disgusting deer. But NOT this year, I am pleased to say. vbg
This photo is an up close photo of my beautiful New Dawn Rose. I do not think I have ever seen any rose more beautiful.
My New Dawn Roses are continuing to bloom in all their glory. The postman came to the door with a parcel today and told me he always looks forward to seeing my flowers bloom. He reckon I have the most beautiful garden in our wee town. I was so surprised to hear that he enjoys my flowers as much as I do that I am sure I cheeks were blushing a very bright red. I do believe he was a bit to generous with his kind compliment, because there are many beautiful gardens in our wee town but I thanked him for his lovely compliment anyways.
This is the first year my Graham Thomas rose has really bloom this nicely. I transplanted it in the Spring because it was not getting enough sun in the back garden. I am happy to say that I think it is now happy with its new home.
This wee rose is called, Bill Grant. I ordered it from a nursery in Oregon a few years back. It blooms are tiny and white. I bought this rose because it has the same name as my sweetie. It is a very unique just like my wonderful husband.
This is the first bloom on my hydrangeas bush. Most years they have been blue but for some reason this year they are looking pink which I do not mind because "Pink" is my favorite color.
Another photo of my lovely purple clematis still blooming since June.
I really love this clematis because of its pale lavender colors.
I hope you all enjoy your visit today with another tour of my gardens and my lovely gifts from my friends. Thanks for stopping by.
