Hi! Dire warnings of dense fog and thunderstorms have limited my beach walking recently. Yes I know, at least it is not a tornado, like some of you may be having....
Photos taken in dense fog are often not very pretty....
And I definitely did not want to be a few miles down the beach when---if!--- the thunder began to rumble.
Instead I wandered through my little neighborhood, admiring the flowers and trees that survived H. Sandy. The fiddle headed ferns are so magical, like in a storybook!
I can see where the floodline was because many plantings, even the salt air tolerant kinds, cannot withstand even a little saltwater submerging.
Many hedges have sadly brown and nasty bottoms, three to four feet up for the ground, with just a crewcut of green on their tops. These are some beautiful survivors, planted in a lucky high spot!
When the rain really poured down I worked on my medallion panel for Lori's quiltalong. here
I am underwhelmed by the results.
The workmanship [mine] is not the best. I think I felt pressured by the fast schedule of the project. My ''just get it done'' mentality was not a positive way to approach the job. I'd rather be slow and have the seams pretty and the points meet?
But I guess I forgot...
Dilemmas, but in the general scheme of things, not ...you know...huge.
Hope everyone is safe and busy getting ready for [gasp!] summer this weekend?
gone to the beach....
