Crazy. We're having crazy weather. Snowstorms? In June? Crazy. Of course we are not personally experiencing snow, the snow is an hour away, but still. We're having March-type storms in June - our high today is expected to be 71. That's pushing it.
This was the view to the north, about 2 hours ago.
This is the view to the west. (Sorry about the blur.)
But not only is the weather unseasonable, I've got some confused plants as well. Back in March I discovered a huge bag of ranunculus bulbs that I'd forgotten to plant. I went ahead and planted them. The ranunculuses already in the ground were already blooming.
I didn't expect anything, but if you look closely, you can see a green bud in the center of the frame, just above the pink flowers.
On the opposite side of the yard, here's a June ranunculus, blooming in the midst of the coreopsis. Bloom baby, bloom! :)
Inside I continue to move things out. Really I do. Here's this morning's progress:
Things are off the wall, for the most part.
I keep trying to put things away, but then I get distracted.
I couldn't go another day without doing something with fabric. I've been missing my mom this week, so when I found this phototransfer that I'd made a couple of years ago, I decided to do something with it.
The fabric framing the photo was leftover from a dress she wore as a little girl. I think she was in high school when this picture was taken. If I could figure out the year, I'd quilt it next to her name.
But for today, I'm sewing on beads when I need a break from cleaning. Beading is definitely more fun.
Oh. And I've quilted on my Hoffman twice this week, so I might actually meet this month's Step goal. hip hip hurrah!!
