. . . the fuzz is clearing

. . . well, enough for me to go to my favourite Nursery at Ascot!

(This beautiful clematis will have to be mine in the Spring Time.)
. . . and bask in wonder at these beautiful zinnia's

. . . oh and just a spot of sewing.  Had been making this little mini quilt from a "KD" piece that came my way.  Will add this to my mini quilt wall.


. . . love it!

I didn't like zinnia's all that much but the colour on those are stunning. I might have to rethink my zinnia feelings. Lucky you to be able to wander around that nursery. I'm green with envy....if you will pardon the pun. Love the mini quilt too - so cute.
