sunshine on new leaves
you should see my front yard right now. it's magical. up the hill, there's homestead purple verbena, then wallflowers in lilac and orange, then a carpet of blue lithodora in front of coppery-leaved aaron's beard. the last few dutch iris are lingering on, and by the front steps, the pinks and candytuft are blooming.
in a few days, the siberian iris will be in flower. two years ago, they needed to be divided, and last year, i moved them. i've been waiting to see what color they'd be - turns out, they're purple!

working on: embroidery on paper. it is hard on my fingertips and hands, and i've wrecked several needles, and i'm actually a little bit in awe of this project.
