Welcome back to Sunday Selections.
Begun way back in the mist of time by Kim of Frog Ponds Rock and now continued by me, with a drastic relaxation of rules.
Originally meant for showcasing old photos lost on your files, never seeing the light of day, the meme has morphed into photos of your choice, new or old, good or not-so-good, anything you please, but nothing rude please.
If you are participating, please leave me a comment so I can buzz along and have a look.
Elephant's Child always participates, and her pictures are always worth seeing.
Let's begin today's selection with :
agapanthus, the white variety which is finally blooming at the end of my path
Sir Sleepyhead, taking up valuable table space
how can I say no to a face like this?
here's something unexpected, a large cobweb growing from my ceiling down into the smoke alarm. I can't believe I didn't notice it! And I wouldn't have if one loose strand over by the cornice started blowing in the breeze from the fan.
a row of hanging pots, each with cuttings of Christmas cactus, standing tall and strong. As soon as they show evidence of growth, I'll hang them somewhere.
this strong little jade has grown from a single leaf tossed into this pot some time last year. It's about four inches tall.
my pelargonium cuttings got off to a good start but seem to be at a standstill, tiny buds of green have disappeared on some while others now have tiny leaves. Possibly I let them dry out too much😕
my porch pots are beginning to resemble a small jungle
the pot at the bottom of the steps has a bunch of self sown marigolds doing well
the white geranium cutting in the same pot took a battering from rains
but another tiny piece of stem has set down roots and now has plenty of leaves.
an unusual shadow on the inside of the front door
made by this windchime; the shadow is thrown by the kitchen light which now has a new glass shade,
which throws a really pretty pattern
this fabric was option #2 when I was shopping for fabric to make a bathroom curtain.
option #1 was the eventual choice for the curtain, because the teal and white matches her shower curtain, while the grey squares are the same shade as her towels. But she also really liked the striped fabric,
and asked if I could make her some pillowcases.
"of course," I said, "just let me try to remember how." I haven't made a pillowcase since this child of mine was a baby. Turned out well, didn't they?
I even got the stripes to match up really closely 😀
Angel has a new placemat, I wondered if he would shy away from it at first, being new and having that "new" smell, but he came inside really hungry and couldn't have cared less.
here's my tea infuser, I've named him fishducky
and my minions mug. some of you may remember I posted this cartoon as a Whimsical Wednesday entry and said at the time I was going to have this printed on a mug. And here it is, the print is on both sides, because the cost was the same for two sides as one.
