Whatcha Working On Wednesday

It was another scorcher here today. We've been in the 90's with very high humidity. Feels more like 100º. Same through Friday. There is relief in sight for Saturday. This morning after it rained I ventured outside to see what I could find to photograph. I always find something. I was very surprised to see 1 bloom on my clematis plant. I've had this plant for many years and it barely makes it every year. I think I need to transplant it to a better spot where its roots would be cooler. I have an idea and will move it this fall.

And my ornamental grass is blooming now. It has really grown this summer with all the rain we've been getting.  Looks like I'm gonna need to divide that plant soon!

And then there is my little succulent gardens. They haven't been doing to good with all this rain. A couple of them have died and a couple more are just hanging on. They don't like a lot of rain. They only need to be watered once a week and we have been getting more then that every week with all this rain. I just think they are the coolest plants.

I mailed my sweet Raggedy Ann and little froggie doll today to Kathryn who lives in Texas. I'm a little sad to see her go. I really loved the way she turned out. She was cute as a button with her froggie friend. I may have to make one for myself.

I did manage to make up this little birdie today to replace the one I sold to Janine in Australia. She said that her 9 year old stole hers, so she ended up buying my pattern to make one for herself. I never get tired of making these birds. I can whip one out in a hour and a half now.

That's about it for now. Now its time to relax the rest of the evening.


  1. Hazy, hot and humid- the weather forecast has become a broken record. I must confess viewing your wonderful fall items has made me feel much cooler, I'm ready for Fall. BTW Love your bird's too!

  2. I can't remember it ever being this hot and it is just too much to work on anything that covers me, so doing small lap projects. We might get rain tomorrow, so that will be a relief.


  3. Tammy,

    The clematis is beautiful. I too have lost some of my new plantings this year and other ones aren't happy. It has been a very rough summer here with temps over 90 degrees for 40+ days so far. I think we are on track for the hottest summer. Of course this was after the snowiest winter. Maybe this winter will be really mild for us....I sure hope so.

    Have a good day.


  4. I think many of us will be glad when this summer is over! At least we have pretty blooms like yours to look at!

    Love your little birdies. I never get tired of seeing new ones, LOL.
