Here's "the red beast" in Isabella Johnstone:
So happy to have gotten to this part! I am using Belle Soie silks - very yummy. The leaves on the trees / shrubs call for Wheatgrass but I found that too light so I used Scarecrow instead. Isn't this a beautiful sampler? I just love it!
We've been having a very mix bag of Fall weather. Fortunately this weekend has been sunny so I've finally gotten out to do some garden clean-up. As a result, I brought some flowers indoors.
The yellow flower in the first photo is a dahlia. The pink flowers are schizostylis coccinea, or kaffir lily. I love this fall-flowering beauty. It also comes in a medium red colour. One note of warning about planting these - they spread everywhere! As pretty as they are when in bloom, they can look messy (grassy) when they peek up out of other plants where they don't belong. So, I've dug them up and will put them in a big pot so they can grow happily "contained".
I'm keeping heads down these days. I think there are two more weeks to this "madness" at work then maybe I can breathe a sigh of relief! :-)
Thank you as always for visiting my little corner of the world. Take care!
