Blackwork and a Lazy Day

This weekend I finished the second in my black work embroidery pictures....these are really fun to stitch..there is some bead work on them also....I do love to bead......

Our weather has been very nice..not hot..mostly in the high 70s and low 80s..we get wind just about every afternoon too..nights are very cool, in the 40s and 50s....so much of the country is hot, we feel blest....as its dry also..low humidity....and no bugs to speak of......like mosquitoes and flies......today while in the garden, we spied a beautiful pink and orange dragon fly..I wish I'd had the camera.....it wasn't large but its colors were gorgeous....dragon flies are rare here so we had to watch it as it flew around the garden.....amazed at it beauty.  We are still being plagued by squirrels however..the count is up to 15....

A neighbor came by with a gift of tomato plants....he knows we love our tomatoes...we sent him off with some of our canned goods, a jar of peaches, fig conserve, canned plums, and some dried apples....he is quite knowledgeable about all the many varieties of tomatoes...he grows over 100 plants a year..all in pots! sells some, gives some away but had never canned ..so of course, we had to share the wonders of canning....

Later, Alan planted the two  he gave us..Black Cherokee......an heirloom variety....
