"Makes me Happy Monday"
"Happy Monday" I hope you have a wonderful day.
I am happy to say that sometimes making mistakes turns out for the best. I spent a good part of Friday quilting. I even had about 99.9% of it done. Then I looked back at it from a distance and decided "No". I have got most of it undone, just about 6 blocks of stippling to unpick. Then I will hand quilt it. Amazing how comfortable I feel with this decision. There was nothing actually to much wrong with the quilting it just didn't feel right.
I am very happy that our Winter vegie garden is producing so well. There are several mini Cauliflowers ready to be picked. All organic too.
The Broccoli is ready to be picked also. I just love this vegetable. I could eat it until the cows come home.
The Crab apples are in flower. The little birds love this tree at this time of the year.
I am very happy that the roses are all ready to bloom or blooming. This one called "Maurice Ultrillio" is in bloom down the front of the garden. It is a bright red brilliantly contrasted by crisp and vibrant slashes of yellow and white,constantly changing from budburst through to the full,voluptuous and generous mature bloom. It is such a striking rose with large double flowers borne in clusters and a wonderfully healthy bush plant with a rich enchanting frangrance. It is a Delbard Rose from the "Painters Collection"
It has been very cold here the past week or so. Temperatures of 12 to 15 degrees has been the high on some days. We don't get snow here but I think the "Allysum" that grows in the garden could easily be taken for snow on these cold days. Happy that the temperature is going to get warmer during the coming week. I wonder what is "Making you Happy" today.
