Okay, it’s partially my fault because I couldn’t find the ‘perfect’ rod but finally, I did and finally, Mr. PQ did his thing with the drill and it’s up…and I love it! My A Primitive Garden quilt finally has a permanent home in our den.
In order to free up some wall space large enough to accommodate the quilt, we had to do some rearranging of the furniture. So come along with me and I’ll take you on a little tour.
The quilt is hanging on the wall to the left as you enter the den.
Then, as we travel clockwise around the room, there’s the outside wall or the one with the window.
Continuing in a clockwise direction is the wall with the sofa. This is where I read and do most of my stitching…if I’m not at the kitchen table, i.e.
Then there’s the last wall that backs onto the hallway. You can see some things in the corner on the floor that I had to remove from the wall in order to hang the quilt. Now I need to find a new home for them.
And back to where we came in…
As soon as the weather cools down, we’re going to take the room apart again in order to paint and then I’m going to do some stencilling.
While we’re at it, follow me into the garden. The mid summer perennials are in full bloom and it’s very peaceful and quiet…except for the chickadees who keep on reminding me that it’s time I start to fill their feeders.
In the foreground, the red flowers are perennial hibiscus. When fully open, the blooms are as large as a bread plate.
Here’s a closer look. Isn’t it beautiful?
I think I’ll cut some rudbeckia when we’re done to freshen up my indoor bouquets. I love these flowers and you can find them in several beds throughout the garden.
Here’s a new one I started in the Spring from a tiny cutting, surrounded by Datura, or Angel’s Trumpet.
It’s so peaceful at this time of the morning. Hummingbirds drink water from the cup and saucer.
Everything seems to to be waiting for Autumn to arrive…
With the cooler nights and shorter days.
Even Mac…who’s just chilling and waiting for the squirrels to waken.
