Feeling Small

Glorious days. Outside. All the time. No stitching, didn't even turn on the computer.

Winter will return for a bit.  Brought in some wood. Expecting two freezing nights and perhaps a bit of snow.  I can cover some tender things. But Magnolia will have to make it on her own.

Good Night.


  1. YES! same here – outdoor interruption of everyday art indoors but who can resist? I did take a full art day on Tuesday when it was glorious and the best day of the week (heavy rain Wednesday, rain and wind and cold thurs and Fri). Am learning to follow my intuition and not hold myself to any particular schedule of art or outdoors. And to enjoy both when I’m in the midst. No expectations (well, I expect a pretty yard and it is complying). Love your tiny iris. My yard is filled with daffodils planted 2 years ago and flourishing. Deer don’t like them. they don’t even nibble. That’s a win.

    More of the same here across the pond, Jude. We have had two hot days in a row, temperature now dropping just in time for the easter weekend and the possibility of snow next week! lovely flowers. I have gorgeous blue and dark red anemones making my heart sing when I see them on cloudy days.

    I found a brand new fern growing today, about 3 inches tall and still curled in its spiral. Then, I noticed a big crane is sleeping in a tree right out the door!! So cool.

    I love your moss forest photo so very much ♡ would you ever consider selling a print?


  4. The magnolias should be fine. They are blooming here, so glorious. I love the little things too. Well okay I pretty much love all plants. Except bindweed. 🙂

    A stormy evening and now a blast of chilly air behind it— So “done” with that, enough already! ha!–I’m ready to plant beans and tomatoes…
    Beautiful moss, iris and magnolia <3 xoxo
    …not much stitching going on here, either.

    Today read an article about “little winters” that farmers look for in the spring to guide planting. This is the first one…
