 Our Daylilies are doing well this year. They have alot of blooms.
I have several different varieties, wish I would of marked them.
It really doesn't matter though, I just think they are pretty. 
 Last summer we had a drought. This year it seems like it has rained everyday.
Our dogs like any kind of weather.

Blessings Rug

 I sure am liking the weather!  We opened the windows and
turned off the air conditioning.
I finished this rug today, it's a Tonya Robey- Madhen design.
It's in one of her little books.

This is my farm fairy garden.
It is in a copper sink.
I'm really hooked on fairy gardens, they are so much fun.
Have a great day!

A Walk Around My House

 July has been a blur! We had 18 days of rain, it felt like
grey winter. The last couple days have been beautiful, temps in the 70's!!
My kind of weather!!
 This is looking down from my driveway.
Alot of my flowers are blooming right now.
 This is flower bed in the middle of my yard.
there are dahlias growing up through the tripod trellis.
I planted them late so they aren't blooming yet.
 One of my favorite flowers are ornamental lillies!
Love the color and they smell so good.
This is a guy I made a few years ago, I'm
going to make a couple more of these guys.
I planted most of the annuals in pots this year.
 Our front porch

Hope everyone is enjoying the summer, I am!

Rain Rain Go Away!!!

 It has been raining daily here, it can stop, we've had
enough rain for awhile.
I just finished this rug, it is version
of a Polly Minick pattern.
Hers was alot bigger!
You can't see in the picture but, I used different blue wools .
This past weekend was Katie's hookin at Kingwood in Mansfield.
I bought some wool, of course, never have enough!!
Also, bought flowers in the greenhouse.
2 things I have an addiction to. LOL!! 

 I have several Fairy gardens. 
I love collecting plants and little things 
to put in them.I bought the hypertufa container  last fall 
at the Rural Society Antique Garden Show.
 I found this old drawer in one of our barns.
There's alot of primitive stuff like this in our barns.
People used to these to put nuts and bolts old drawers.
Since we hardly had rain last summer, I thought I would
plant a succulent planter this year.
Of course, now it's raining like crazy.
Hope the plants don't die from too much rain.
That's the way it goes here at Butler Farms.
Have a great day!!
