“They” the weathermen say possibly a freeze this weekend – have been saying that for several days now so I have been prepping – moving plants a little closer to the wall of the porch etc so that if I need to toss a blanket over them for a couple nights it makes it easier – draining hoses that are used for watering plants – and now last night on the news “they” say 33 degrees maybe – well looks like we might just miss the early freeze but I have my plants closer to the house wall.
I bought the ferns in early April – regular size plants then the kind they charge about $8-10 for at the Lowe’s store and my have they grown – I had them hanging but now they are on tables – they can last well into December if I help them along but they never last the cold months and I just always loose them in the house – they don’t like my house in the winter – so when April comes around again I buy new – but that $8-10 investment I get to enjoy them for a good 8 months usually.
This one got even bigger and all I do is water – I never remember to add fertilizer – but I do have tree frogs that like to live in them so maybe that helps?
And because I thought we might get a freeze I cut a lot of the Pineapple Sage to put in a vase in the house – the plant got huge and was so cheap – I found it in the herb area of Home Depot and paid about $3 for it and it grew and grew – the white flowers are from a bulb called a Star Gladiolus – it was an early summer flower and somehow this one decided to flower twice and gave me more this last couple weeks.
On the Murrieta Stars quilt I got this much done on Wednesday night. Lights over the frame were off and the flash shut off too – if I leave the flash on it tends to wash out the quilting so you can’t see it – this color is hard to get right. Linking to Busy Hands Quilts this morning and Confessions of a Fabric Addict and Crazy Mom Quilts.
This side is closer to the lights in Mike’s area of the room and so the colors are totally different – I will be working on this area last night. Right now I am watching a show on Netflix called “The Good Witch” a lighter show than I normally watch – a fun show – no violence – it is a Hallmark Show – a nice change from police drama.
Some sales going on at AccuQuilt until the end of the month.
