Blue moons, flowers, old cars and squares!

Jack and I both love old cars! The last time we were at Wal-Mart this one was in the parking lot.
Here is a close up of one of our morning glories. These were already here when we moved here last year. I don't think any of the ones I planted came up. My own fault as I forgot to nick the seeds and soak them for 24 hours! DUH!
Here is the wire where they live on the side of the car port. I can not wait for them to cover it more and have even more blooms. This fall, Jack is putting up new wire for them and we will add more colors of morning glories, add some moonflowers and other vines. I hope to buy some corkscrew flower vines. those are so cool!
Been crocheting a few squares for the quilt! Thought it would be fun to throw them all on the floor! Well, it was but the picking them up wasn't nearly as much fun.
Here too is Blue Moon Angel. Not a lot of progress on her but some. My allergy eyes have been kicking up a bit. Not so good for cross stitching!
Well folks, as of the end of June we have had 39.50 inches of rain for the year. That is before the storm we had at one a.m. Saturday morning. Keep in mind that for our area normally we get 45 inches of rain for the entire year! However the ones who have really been dealt a hard blow and major flooding are of course in Iowa and Missouri where it is next to the Mississippi. So please pray for those folks and any others affected by all the rain and other disasters.

Oh Michele..the rain, you are right, so many have been so overwhelmed by the flooding etc.

Hi Michelle,
What a very cool old car. We sometimes see them on the road in route to the different car shows.
Love your morning glories. You've had so much rain. Wish you could send just a bit our way as we are in a drought with such high fire dangers.
Seems every where has its share of problems, but we must remember that God is in control of it all.
love and ((hugs))

Beautiful morning glories. That's one thing we don't have in our yard - our climatis is gorgeous and climbing like crazy up the back fence. I guess I need to post a picture!

CONNIE'S THOUGHTS FROM THE HEART said...

Michelle, my husband loves old cars, I love morning glories.lol If you go over to his blog listed under Jim, you will check back in March sometime and you can see the ones we found on our anniversary. He loved them.

The quilt is going to be very pretty.

We have been having a lot of Spring storms, lot of lightning, the kind that goes to the ground, not so much rain though. I sure do feel bad for all those who are going through all the flooding. We have had two floods in the last 40 years, here at our home and it has not been fun. So, I am certainly praying for those people. Have a great day!!! connie from Texas

We've had rain, rain, and more rain too. Everything is so green and beautiful as a result and we are enjoying the little cooler weather for this time of year. I'm afraid all of this is going to be coming to a quick halt and the hot temperatures are coming.

I enjoyed the quilt pieces on the floor :o) Sorry it was work to pick up.

Yes, I've prayed for those people in the flood regions. It is so sad.

praying for all those affected by the rain!

I love the old cars too! they are pretty incredible!

Dawn said...

I have always been glad to live in the same place throughout my adulthood, since I lived so many places as a child being a preacher's kid. My children thought it was boring and wanted to move about, but I told them how fortunate they were to be able to know where their things were always going to be! And still are, I have to say. Though I'd like for them to come and get them!

Nancie said...

Wow, beautiful car, flowers and quilt! I am praying for those affected by the rain too. Take care.

Love your crochet and needle work and your rug under the crochet is beautiful.

Once upona when we lived in VA, we had morning glories on the house we rented. Each morning it was a delight to their smiling blossoms.

Thanks so much for your kind words on my blog about my stitching.

Glenna said...

Love the car!

We've seen an awful lot of rain this year--but last year was a drought and the reservoir nearly ran dry, so we're grateful, I guess.
Happy Fourth!

Trisha said...

I want to plant some morning gloried next year since they grow wild in this area - that usually means they'll do well if we plant some.
