Today was a BEAUTIFUL day after the recent rains. Everything is growing like wildfire and there was grass to be mowed.
Looking at Betsy's blog today, I was inspired to set my round pavers into the ground at the back steps.
This section of flower garden is at the edge of my yard, against the woodline. I bought composted manure and top soil to add to this shade garden this year. I tilled in it roughly a few days ago, just trying to loosen the soil around the things that are already planted there.
Hubby provided another 12 Miracle Grow spikes for shrubs and trees, so now all of the Rose of Sharons, Crepe Myrtles and other things are fed. I treated the Hydrangea with the Bayer product that I bought for Black Spot disease, as it had started again. The rose bush was treated on May 10th.
Yesterday I got all of Jen's Contrary Wife quilt top cut out after having to replace the background fabric. And, today I received another project from Joide, with 2 more quilt tops to piece. These two are couch-size, so I am looking forward to doing them, but first comes the queen top for Jen.
I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy; for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;
"NOW THANKS BE UNTO GOD, WHICH ALWAYS CAUSETH US TO TRIUMPH IN CHRIST !"
The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear?The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
When the wicked came against me to eat up my flesh, my enemies and foes, they stumbled and fell. Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear....Psalm 27 1-3
Psalm 31: 7, 8
And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy; thou hast set my feet in a large room.
