When the bird bath in the garden fills and overflows with rain it saves us a job.
Over the last 3 days and nights we have had 5.5" of much needed rain. Now as the sun is back out it is a bit sauna like as it evaporates off again.
Son and DIL and Grandson have been to visit for 2 nights. His Dad pulled him around the garden on the old red trolley and they see all sorts.
Luckily son pulled his phone out for this next shot when a Monarch butterfly landed on the bent over by the rain, head of the tiger lily.
Grandson takes a keen interest in birds, butterflies and bees. Bee now being one of his first words.along with ball so "B" must be an easy sound to make.
The only sewing I have done in the last few days was adding a lower case "e" to my quilted letter collection.
I happen to think ( as a ex teacher ) that a little person should learn to recognise his name ( when a bit older ) and write his name using a capital at the beginning and lower case letters for the rest. I will continue to make more indestructible 6" fabric letter for play at a later stage.
I have quite a bag full already which spell Happy Christmas and several other words.
Now I'm off for a walk in the sunshine.
