Busy Bee

This Hardy Hibiscus is one of my favorite plants in the backyard.  Clearly this bee thinks it has hit the jackpot.  I couldn’t get a photo, but the bees are so loaded down with pollen that they can hardly fly away.

A few years ago I was inspired by this lovely plant to make a mini wall hanging.

Garden Variety Inspiration

The garden presents such lush colour combinations.  How can I not be inspired?

After hunting around and snapping photos, it became clear that there seemed to be a colour theme at this moment, this morning in my backyard.

What’s a girl to do, but start pulling fabric!  Whether it results in a new quilt or just a fun moment with fabric, it’s all good for making a girl smile. I am always amazed at how a glimpse of a colour palette can get my creativity whirring.

And that’s all for my colour break for today.  Time to give the house some attention.  It has been desperately neglected in the pursuit of summer pleasure.  But some days you just need to buckle down and clean the toilet!  Balance, right.
