Yes, EVEN IN THIS HEAT, there is still something beautiful to get excited about....how about these flowers and a sweet butterfly! It's so hot here, and just about everywhere else, it seems, that brown seems to be the color of the day. The grass is brown, the leaves are turning brown and falling off the trees, the birds are looking for water...well, heck, so are we! We'd love a bit of rain. There has been some 'around' us, but not here at Bird Nest on the Ground. A friend of mine emailed and said if it rained, she was going to go out and stand in it.....
ME TOO!!!!! I'd love to do that, wouldn't you? This beautiful butterfly doesn't seem to be bothered by the heat and neither do the flowers....although some of them (not in these photos) are getting a little tired. Everything else around our house is pretty much done.
This little butterfly is so absolutely great....can you see the very tips of his antennae??? Those little white dots. No way I would see those without benefit of my photos....so tiny and CUTE!!!
I intended to post about something entirely different...then the day got away from me and after seeing these in my iPhotos (just taken a few days ago) I thought you might enjoy these and I wouldn't have to 'think' too much. (I know YOU know what I mean!) So, enjoy these, please, and stay tuned. I'll try to post a little quicker next time and show you one of my latest projects. They are few and far between these days. Stay cool and safe and take care out there. pat
I am a quiltmaker/embroiderer passionately obsessive about fabrics, buttons, trims, and old photos.
I am a hunter/gatherer who loves flea
markets. I work in my backyard studio I call Bird Nest on the Ground. I have been
married for 44 years. We have two
children, Kelly (a real estate broker/artist living in Searcy) and Scott (a computer "geek" living in San Francisco) and one grandson, Tyler. My husband is retired
from Entergy and is my own personal cheerleader. We have a male cat named
Ethel who allows us to live in our house. I have been teaching quiltmaking since
1985 and have had five titles published by Leisure Arts, Inc. My work is included in both private and public collections. I love what I do!!
