Gifts from the Garden...

~ Harvested my first strawberries this morning~
the baby bunnies have been gnawing on these,
....so I decided to get them before they're all gone!

just a handful,
but their delish & waiting for tomorrow's cereal bowl!!


and a little bouquet I stuck-together;
red & pink spring roses, coreopsis, spearmint & lemon verbena...
placed simply in an old canning jar & set into my little tiny cemenrt urn...
the kitchen smells wonderful!!

and a little stitching too~
the day isn't complete until I stitch, even just a little bit!

I call this type of stitching "plain-stitching"...
just random cross stitches to form letters, then words.
no pattern, no plan, just mindless stitching!!!
{{just my kind !!!}}

Blessings from the Farm,
 Lori

I really like your little "random stitches",... I think I can, I think I can...do that! Save me some strawberries, they look really good and sweat. Have a good evening (millstonemercantile)

Your little bit of stitching is so sweet. I'm reading a great book...Prayers For Sale. In it I just read that the ladies of the early 1900s rubbed Tansy leaves on their to body to protect against mosquito bites. Reading Tansy twice in one day I think is a sign of something:)...I don't recall ever hearing of this plant...hugs, Linda
