Pinwheel Table Runner

I had planned an evening of indoor jobs tonight...we were away on the weekend and I had a long list of things I wanted to accomplish. I arrived home and found my dad in the driveway with a rented rototiller to break up the dirt in the vegetable garden. I think my body is going to ache in the places where I used to play (to quote Leonard Cohen) tomorrow, but the garden is ready for planting and afterwards, I took my camera out to take some pictures of the flowers that were in bloom. The indoor jobs will have to wait for another evening.  The white flowers are in bloom on our highbush cranberry.

I also found lots of columbines in bloom in the side garden. I used my telephoto lens to get these pictures.

I think these are my favourite flowers in my garden.

I like how they pop up in new spots in the garden each spring.

The purple irises are out too.

There are lots of purple flowers in the garden right now, including these bachelor buttons.

I'll bet you thought I was going to forget to show a picture or two of my new pinwheel table runner...

Organic quilting...

This will go on the antique trunk which we use as a coffee table in our living room.

Please indulge me...I have one more flower picture to show...  The seed heads of the pasque flowers are really neat!

Until next time...


  1. nice garden Gail! and the runner looks great too!

  2. Beautiful flowers, I love the white high cranberry. I wonder if we can grow that here on the Maine coast, hmm..
    And the table runner is lovely.
    well done.
