More flowers.....but some stitching too!

I took another picture of my clematis again this morning. That makes 3 days in a row. I've been playing with some of the features on Picasa and created this collage with the photos from the 3 days. I can really see the difference in the the photo from day one on the left to day 3 on the right.

My second amaryllis has two blooms open and two buds yet to open. Isn't this a beautiful flower?My little garden is progressing nicely too. My tomatoes are blooming and there are little buds on the peppers.
I planted onions all around the edge of the beds. They've come up too.

The light green leaves in the above picture is mustard greens. I decided yesterday to pick some of the little leaves and try them in with a tossed salad last night. That really added a nice flavor to the salad.

Here's my barrel with the chives and parsley and some pretty flowers. I used some of the chives and parsley in the salad last night too. It is so nice to be using things from my own yard in meal preparation.

I did not start on those tea towels. I stitched a little more on this block.
I'm almost finished with it. I have a little more stitching to do in the upper left corner, and then I have 4 little cut out areas to do near the center. Then comes the big task of deciding how I want to put the 5 blocks together!

Garden looks like it is progressing quite well...being able to eat your own grown things just makes them taste better.

Enjoy the weekend.

Looking nice Belvie. Are you getting dumped on with rain? We have been pounded on since about 3 a.m. Our county and area is under a flash flood warning and I keep hearing more rumbles of thunder.But at least it is just rain and some rumbles of thunder, not anything severe. I hope your area remains safe tonight. Winona

OMGosh that Amaryllis is HUGE. When you showed the bud I had no idea how large the bloom would be...just gorgeous.
