How I will miss them.
Taking the day to enjoy the beautiful weather and stitch outside. I always feel very lucky when I have time to do this. I've taken inspiration from the garden by selecting a pallet
of faded mauve, greens and maybe a bit of gray. I've only just started this piece, but it's feels easy and comfortable, like an old friend.
The gardens have started to fade, but there are some plants that are at their best right now.
I thought I'd take a few pics of them to show you.
The Sedum, Autumn Joy is a buzz with bees and butterflies and even a few praying mantis, which are considered to be good luck. I always makes sure to say hello to them so they know they are welcome :)
And the Liriope is so beautiful this year with it's purple spikey flowers and variegated foliage.
Even the Hydrangea looks great with it's faded blooms. I love to cut and dry them
to place in a white ironstone pitcher.
I hope you are getting time to enjoy what you love on this beautiful day.
Sweet smiles to you all.
