Our stretch of sunshine came to a standstill yesterday with the arrival first of a few little raindrops, then the faucet was opened and water poured from the sky! The plants needed a good watering anyway.
While the sun was shining I got very little stitching done. Actually, I had only garden in my brain. I didn't read novels, I read (aka Browsed the pretty pictures) gardening books. So when the rain begun, I got back to stitching yesterday.
A little progress on Nellie's Garden Revisited:
Since last week I did the two rows of alphabets with Algerian stitch. Maybe with the rainy stretch I will be able to stitch more this week!
Meanwhile, before the rains came, our tree peonies finished their show and this beautiful white wisteria bloomed in our back garden! Oh, the fragrance of this is so lovely! The photos show the garden clean-up in progress. The small bed in the lower right hand corner has now been planted with a few veggies.
This is a view from our deck looking down.
Now I am going to show you a couple of photos from a thrift find sometime ago. I really hope I haven't asked you this already. I don't think I have as I don't have an answer. What is this little thing?

This little thing can be held in the palm of my hand. I asked at the thrift store but they didn't know. Maybe it's just a decorative thing but for what? If you know, I would love to find out.
That's it for another post. Thanks again for your visits and taking time to leave me your comments. I really appreciate them! Have a wonderful week!
