Herbs, Flowers & Sparklers ~

Hello from sweltering Virginia!!!

it has been SO hot here, & most of you are sufferng from this heat wave along with us ~
weather-folks are saying that relief will come on Tuesday for us...
that's 5 more days of scorching morning sun, rolling afternoon thunder and sticky humid evenings.

we've been fortunate to have daily showers, mostly lasting from 15 minutes to half-an-hour
and they help greatly with the watering of our gardens...

I showed you the lavender in my last post,
and yesterday we harvested a small portion of our catnip & mint crops ~
we hang it on our clothesline initially to dry...then move it to the barn for a while...








Daisy doesn't seem to mind the hanging herbs..they make her barn smell fresh & clean!!





Hi Daisy!!




This morning we woke up to our Hibiscus flowers in full-bloom...



I tried to capture a shot of the many bumbler-bees visiting, but wasn't lucky enough to snap one
~~~~~~




Last night Hannah & Skyler lit up their sparklers...
((I love these pictures...))











SOoooo magical!



I'm working on a new sampler, called "Sisters of the Broom" ~ I'm almost finished designing it, and will soon start on the actual stitching of it ~ for those that like my Hallowe'en designs, I'm pretty sure you will love this one!

I'll share pics of the progress soon...
also, I should be receiving the shipment of the 30ct & 32ct linen today...I'll overdye it and process the pre-orders for thos who have placed them.
My thanks to all who have ordered the 28ct and have given me such wonderful feedback on it ~
I'm so happy that you love it too!

Stay cool, my Friends ~

Blessings from the farm,
Lori
