I love to garden and when we moved here in April I had big plans for our terraced back and side yards. Then I injured my back and wasn't able to garden at all. My morning routine is to enjoy a cop of coffee on the upper back deck. I can sit out there is my pj's listen to the birds sing and watch the squirrels play in the big oak tree. I always felt a little disappointed when I look down and saw weeds growing where flowers should be..... then last week I looked down in the back yard and saw these beauties swaying in the breeze..... it took my breath away! Seriously it took my breath away.... It was a gift, a wonderful beautiful gift, one that I can look forward to every year. Surprise Lilies!!
This is how they looked from the deck.

and here is a closer look.
I also found them along the front of the house and by the garage. When driving around town you see them everywhere..... such a wonderful sight!! Do you have Surprise Lilies in your yard?
Now on the claying. I am enjoying making canes again. I originally planned to make a Border cane to go with my Fox cane...... and ended up with these. Often my muse leads me in a totally different direction. Never fear, I will try again for canes to go with the Foxes.

This is my favorite
Fun canes I made with the scraps.
I am working on beads from the canes and their scraps that I really like, will post photos when they are done.
That's it for today.
Thanks for stopping by.
