From My Garden

Wow I can't believe I haven't posted since last week. I have been busy as a bee. Here are some pretty Hydrangea from my garden. They actually are not as pretty as they should be, they don't seem to do well here in my soil and the place of which they are planted in my garden.
I posted my Suns Collection right before this post.

Pin It

I have several new cards I made I will show off later. I made them for my friend Mary Grace in Italy. She is sending me a painting she made, it's a beautiful painting of sunflowers. She does not have a blog.

Several new crystal suncatchers

I also made two vases full of felt flowers, I have to go to Joann's an get some more pipe cleaners to use as stems. I made a video on how to make them but I don't have time to post it just yet. 
 I am also halfway done making a crochet zigzag quilt.

There has been a horrible fire in Placer County where we live for about a week and 2000 firefighters were trying to put it out. It was so smokey mostly in the morning. Our area was never in any danger.
It was in the 100's when it started and then it cooled off to 75 degrees and today it's back up in the 80's.
We are all over the place when it comes to temperatures. I heard we are going to get tropical weather tomorrow.

Steve got a shot in his knee I think it is cortisone. He had to see a specialist and they are not sure what is wrong with it yet but have decided it is one of two things. He may be facing surgery up the road, but it won't be major.

Funny thing, on Tuesday which was Steve's day off he wanted to go to the movies, I said okay and I went to get ready. We decided we would pick up Pizza from Mary's Pizza on the way home. The movie MoonRise Kingdom. Since I was running around trying to get ready for the movie before it started I didn't ask what it was about. When the movie started I saw that is was about cub scouts I was so mad at my husband, but I didn't tell him that. He said to me because it was slow at first we could go, He didn't like the movie either. Well we stayed and it did get better and it is a very cute movie.
Here is the synopses.   
Set on an island off the coast of New England in the summer of 1965, two twelve-year-olds fall in love, make a secret pact, and run away together into the wilderness. As various authorities try to hunt them down, a violent storm is brewing off-shore -- and the peaceful island community is turned upside down in more ways than anyone can handle.
Anyway it's a cute movie but the beginning of the movie starts out strange.
I did forgive Steve for taking me to see a quirky movie. I ended up loving it and the pizza was good and the company was not bad either.

Have a wonderful summer day1



  1. Hi Kat!! You have been so busy!! The flowers are beautiful. Have a nice week. ((BIG HUGS))!!

  2. Hi Kat,
    I am LMBO here thinking about you guys watching that movie. I am a BIG movie buff but Wes Anderson's movie are just to strange for me if you can believe that lol Sorry about Steve's knee :( I don't know if you remember but Justin had ACL knee surgery when he was only 16 years old. His was from falling off a bike or dirt back too many times. His turned out to be a major surgery. So I hope Steve's if he has to have it is not. Those flowers are very pretty. Hope you have a wonderful day. Hugs, Dru

  3. Sorry about your husband's knee! I haven't heard of the movie either but glad you enjoyed it. The hydrangeas are beautiful. They're one of my favorites! Enjoy your day.

  4. Hi Kat! The last movie Jeff and I saw in the theater was Rock of Ages. It didn't get the best reviews but we both loved it. We get DVDs all the time and some are hits but a lot are misses, too. Hope they get a handle on those fires soon. We are having tropical weather here, too. It's Fabio! Leaving for Mammoth tomorrow on a dog trip- 4 dogs! Justin & Sarah are bringing theirs too.

  5. Beautiful flowers, all of ours are dying in this heat even though I have watered them every day. Sorry to hear about the fires, hope they get contained soon and no one gets hurt.
    Hopefully he won't have to have surgery.

  6. Hi Kat :o) Your Hydrangeas are breathtaking! I had a couple hydrangeas that were supposed to be red but they never bloomed, so I replaced them with mystical flame hydrangeas and those seem to be doing very far. I love that berry color. Sometimes my hubby rents movies that aren't so good to... like "Extremely loud and incredibly close" it started out real slow and a bit strange but it turned out to be a really good movie didn't come with pizza though..LOL! Have a nice day sweets!

  7. Hi Kat, sorry for my delay in replying. Yes, I'm really enjoying our summer here. Have been out in the garden and yard a lot with Rog. Yes, I'm still on FB, but not visiting it as much as before. Hope you're enjoying your summer too! ((hugs))

  8. Kat, hydrangeas are one of my favorites, and yours are beautiful. The fires sound horrible. I cannot imagine trying to hold back that kind of fire. Firemen are a brave bunch of people. laurie

  9. Your hydrangeas or so pretty! It is too dry for me to grow them, but my mom has some pretty ones! Glad you had fun at the movies after all! Hope they get your husbands knee straightened out. Look up the Waldo Canyon fire, we just had here. It was really scary. But we are all better now.
    Bless you.

  10. Your Hydrangeas look great !Mine have not done so well this year.
    Sounds like you have been very busy&The movie sounds interesting.


Have a wonderful day! ~Kat
