Hot Day in July

It is blazing hot here, and I can’t imagine having a lump of sweater on my lap—one sleeve left—though my thoughts do turn to the next quilt (aided and abetted by the wonderfully inspiring Jane Brocket from Yarnstorm and her beautiful book “The Gentle Art of Quiltmaking”. Go get that book; you’ll be chopping up the curtains.)

Meanwhile, there is this:

summer 001

(Black raspberries, I think the variety is ”Cumberland”)

and this:

summer 004

(Daylily, goodness knows what kind)

and this:

summer 005

(Stargazer lily; surely, the most intoxicating flower of them all. Doesn’t it make you wish you were a bee?)
