White flowers in my late spring garden.....

A humble succulent flower

A lily of the valley bush

A pretty ground cover called 'Wedding bells'

Not sure about this one as it just invited itself into my garden but it is pretty.

And last but not lest are these flowers on one of our New Zealand cabbage trees that are in flower.

And when I'm not enjoying the lovely sunshine in our garden I've been working on a pieced quilt back, trying to use up scraps from the actual quilt top and also fabrics in my stash that aren't quite 'me' anymore. Doesn't it feel good to use up what you have in your stash.

Oh! Your garden flowers are glorious Catherine. There's virtually nothing left in bloom over here anymore so it's nice to see your flowers and live vicariously!

Such lovely blooms! Your flowers are delightful and you have photographed them so beautifully! I think your quilt is looking so pretty. The colors look like fall.

Oh how beautiful are all your flower Catherine! Thanks for the trouble to take the photos and put them on. Your backing is coming on nicely too. I am doing a backing too but somehow I am never as enthousiastic about piecing the back as I was for the front... fingers crossed it will come out ok! (mine that is, I know yours will be just great!)

Such beautiful flowers, Catherine. I look forward to more glimpses of your whole garden which must be even fabulous. So these are the fabric strips that's all over the lounge floor - looking forward to see the completed quilt top!
Have a good weekend!

Wow! You really have some nice flowers...mine are sure to die every time. I feel like I can't even keep a succulent alive!
