I'll be back.

Hello old and new friends. My blog has been inactive but I am still around. I loom-knit, weave and have picked up the sticks to needle knit, too! My patterns page links to Ravelry and I will answer questions about those. Maybe someday I will be back to write more. We will see where life takes me.

Garden buzz

Autumn has arrived but my garden is still pretty bzzz-y. The fall flowers are blooming and the bees are feasting. The sedum has been the buffet of the block. I like to believe they are quite thankful for the nectar so I thought it would make a good card for my Etsy shop.

Sedum Bee Thank You Card

Onto to the best photos of my September garden ...

Butterfly on the sedum
This year, I caught a butterfly enjoying the sedum.

Licorice vine

Stubborn strawberries
On the patio below, my stubborn strawberry plant tries to bear another round before our first frost hits.

Now I want to show of the star of the season. My four toad lilies are all blooming in the shade garden. These teeny tiny flowers squish in so many details that I love getting right in their faces. I can't wait to see how they spread to fill out the area next year.

Toad lilies
This big bloomer came from my mother-in-law's friend.

The tallest toad lily of dark purple and white rises high above the three other plants.
