Rainy and cool spring here. Peonies drooping to the ground from the weight of the flower heads and the torrential downpours of late. Here is my clematis with its first huge bloom nearly10 inches across. Various clematis plants have suffered agonizing deaths here from lawn mower encounters and other manly tortures but this tuff little plant has survived.
Also here is a photo of my favorite birthday present. A sweetgrass basket from South Carolina brought back as a gift by a close friend. I just love it. So well made. Very firm weave. The gifter also took photos of the basket maker and that makes it even more special.
I've been sewing a bit more lately. Enjoying working with the bright colors of spring and summer.
I redid this bouquet of silk flowers from last year's wreath since Todd loved purple so much. A few white roses added a pop of contrast to the arrangement
That's about all from prairie flatlands.
