Well, the Hobby came home for lunch and "fixed" the camera... So hopefully here are the promised pictures.
smaller square of color? That will create a secondary design once the blocks are all sewn together. (Notice my Grandma's pin cushion hanging on the wall. It is so convenient right there.)
The rest of the pictures are just some of the little plants earmarked for trick or treaters.... There are some trees started from seed - catalpa and one acacia - there is spearmint, wisteria from seed, mother-in-laws tongue, Christmas cactus, friendly cactus, and these aren't even the ones that inhabit my window sills!
Part of the project is to reuse and recycle containers to use as pots. (The kids last year were impressed that they could identify where the containers came from. A good lesson to learn, I'd say.) Some of the containers are from yogurt and for the ones outgrowing those "pots" there are 2 liter soda bottles with the tops cut off. They work great for the larger plants like trees or vines.
Okay, you'll have to tilt your head... don't laugh... I can't figure out how to turn this one. You can see some of the larger plants here. I have 2 roses left over from last year and some devil's claw. Near the right about half way back is one of the California Buckeye. I picked seeds in the woods and started them in pots. I don't think anyone has one in their yards because they go dormant in July... Just a mass of interesting sticks until March or so. It is a tree with the shortest growing season I have ever come across. I'm going to suggest that the kids plant them into the walkway near us... they can watch it's progress there.
So thanks to Mr. QuiltNCards you have some pictures today. I'll try the window sill ones tomorrow.
Let me know what you think... I'd love to get some comments! Until tomorrow.
