Outdoor Wednesday July 7

The aliens have landed.

They were frightened by a giant human.

Who later turned out to just want to take them home to play another day.

My granddaughter loves to make stuffies. She drew the design for these and then I had to make the pattern and do the stitching.

(Not much going on in the way of flowers-I think its just too hot for them).

I love it when plants "volunteer" to grow again. There are coleous in my flower pots that seeded from last year.

I'm trying to get some lilies and iris to come up from seed. We'll see.


  1. Oh my gosh, I laughed out loud when I saw those stuffies among the plants. How fun! I also love the volunteers that pop up each year. No effort, and they come back fuller than the year before.
    Thanks for stopping by!

  2. I plant impatiens every year and I love when volunteers sprout and fill in the gaps.

    Your "stuffies" are so cute -- your grand daughter's designs are wonderful!
    I scanned a few of your prior posts... I also love books and King is one of my favorite authors.
