The garden has struggled with the weather. I wish we could help take away some of the flooding waters in the South. As well, we've been battling with pesky raccoons over the ripe tomatoes. They seem to be winning. The one thing they are not interested in is an experimental crop I tried this year - just for fun. I had a cotton ball with sixteen seeds and tried planting them. They all came up and have the most beautiful flowers. The foliage is also so graceful and pretty. I have no idea what I will do with my cotton balls, but it was fun to grow them.
We had five little ones here while their parents were on vacation. The week was really busy, but we had a great time. There was lots of help in everything we did!!!
There was also lots of excitement as a second batch of cockatiel eggs hatched. Each morning the children would rush out to see if a new egg had hatched. They are just little balls of fluff - two yellow, two white. I'm going to link these up with the Pets on Quilts.
This is our grown baby- an only child- from the last eggs that they laid. He is such a love - so tame and already talking.
Needless to say, there has not been a lot of sewing going on here, but I did get ahead on my September Bee blocks.....fun sewing.
The county fair was last week and the girl's pigs went to market. They had a great time hanging out for the week in the livestock area with all of the other kids. I'm guessing they will do the project again next year.
I've been enjoying the Olympics and am sad to see that the end is near for them. The summer Olympics are always my favorite with the gymnastics, swimming, equestrian and volleyball. Four more years...............
