green but not in the garden
All of the deep purple iris have finished flowering a couple of weeks ago at least and then this week, these came into flower. More burgundy / puce than purple and equally as gorgeous as the last lot.
Mind you that photo is very carefully framed. The garden and the rest of the block are definitely struggling with the water situation. Things are getting grim .
Anyhoo, even if the garden isn't green, I am ... with envy. My buddy Linda in Ohio and her friend Phylis [ the girls I went to Paducah with 10 years ago ] are leaving on Monday to go to the Houston Quilt Fair. They go to Paducah every year because it's ONLY a seven hour drive from Dayton, OH, but Houston is a much bigger deal both in the distance travelled and the size of the event. I'm not good with crowds. I found Paducah pretty mind boggling and I'm not sure I'd cope at all with something on the scale of Houston. However, I love living vicariously through my friends so I will await details with bated breath.
Still working on Nadie's Short and Sweet, and thinking about the next quilt.
