Gardening again!

Presenting today's flower ....Blogging hugs to everyone who can guess where I was sitting when I finished it......
This brings my total to 11!!!
I had a weekend away recently and managed to get quite a few done. I was so pleased with myself until I laid them all out and saw that the effect was a very busy one (think garden after heavy rain and strong winds!!).
I was quite despondent until I realised that if I added a restful row around each flower the look was quite different..whew! I decided on white as it meant my eclectic mix of fabrics would all look good with it; some below already have a bit of a garden path, and I'm pleased with this result.
And below is my scenic shot for this post - this is a very tall conical, conifer tree which the birds absolutely love. We sit on the deck watching hundreds of little birds darting here and there, nest building, tweeting and flitting about as only little birds can do. I think my photography antics scared them off though!
I'm looking forward to a fun time visiting and viewing everyone else's Wednesday garden posts. Thanks for visiting mine!! Have a happy day everyone!!

QUILTING IS BLISSFUL, DI said...

Your "flower" garden is growing along beautifully--I keep wanting to do them--only--they never fit into my "garden" of time--so I will just have to enjoy yours for now!!!!
Hugs, Di
