Something purple...

Steve and I worked in the yard some this morning. It is overcast today, but not raining and it is cool, but comfortable. I raked and cut back plants that needed it. Steve dug up saplings that were growing in bad places. 

I hate to say it but now my hands hurt. There are many good aspects to getting 
older... but knowing that your body is beginning to fall apart is not one of them. Thank goodness for Advil!

I took these "purple" photos when I was in Baltimore and I've been saving them to share with you. I have no idea what this flower is but isn't it cute!

Hi,

The flower is a variety of Osteospurnum. I've had them in my garden. They close when the sun goes in. Here they are in white.

At our last applique club meeting, everyone was sitting around comparing aches and pains. Per my chiropractor, all of the aches and pains are due to changes in the weather and that dreaded word "age." But in spite of the aches and pains, I still love to applique-especially your patterns!
