New Plantings & Beautiful Handwork

Hello Friends!
and happy Monday to you ~

I took a drive out to a local nursery yesterday to pick up some new plants for
a little raised bed that Peter built for me next to the front porch :

chartreuse & cinnamon Coleus ~

chocolate mint, petunias & zinnias ~

their color combination makes me happy!!

no farmhouse proch would be complete without a huge boston fern
(mother's day gift from peter, hannah & skyler)

...or a pink geranium to tempt the hummingbirds :)

here's a shot of the porch-in-progress:
...notice the mud on the concrete?

this is why there is mud on the concrete!

~ so pretty & old fashioned ~

speaking of old fashioned, look at this needleweaving!!

worked on homespun linen using cotton threads...
in tone-on-tone colors....

I can't remember where i got this from (Joan? Mom?)
but I've been studying it closely....

whomever's hands started this so very long ago were skilled beyond measure ~
each little stitch is perfect :)

I'll use this as a teaching tool to refine my handwork
... and hopefully one day I'll be able to create something like this for an heirloom piece ~

Hoping you all have a beautifully creative Monday my Friends...
Blessings from the Farm!
