Cross Stitch and Flowers

Thanks so much for all the kind wishes you sent to sweet Hannah on her first birthday. I appreciated them so much.  Her parents don't read my blog so I sent them an email suggesting they take a look.  Both of them did and thank you also  for your wonderful comments!
I think  I'll just comment on the pictures instead of writing a lot here.

 Here is Liberty Lane with the alphabet started and no words" Liberty Lane."  I do love it with the alphabet.  This part will be finished tonight.  The second row completes the alphabet and has the numbers 1-10. 

 This year I made a new goal for myself.  I decided to bring in my garden flowers so we would  enjoy them in the house. Here you see 3 types of peonies in the powder room.  They smell wonderful!

More peonies in the family room.

Roses on the island!

I planted a mock orange just for the smell of the flowers.  This afternoon I'm going out to cut a nice big branch.  It had just started blooming when I took this picture.

 When I travel, I always enjoy seeing what kind of wild flowers grow along the roadside.  Each year I look forward to seeing the wonderful display of foxglove that we have here in the NW. They bloom along our roads where ever there is a sunny spot.



I hope you all have a wonderful week-end and celebrate Father's Day in great style!!  The DH and I are going to one of our favorite little towns and doing some antiquing!!

One Year Ago

Just one year ago this beautiful little girl was born!  My only regret is that we live so very far away form our grand daughter and her sweet brother!

Happy Birthday Hannah!!!!!
