Butterflies Everywhere

It is so exciting when there are dozens of butterflies in the garden.

Aren't they just beautiful creatures?

I have my gourds growing on a piece of fencing that forms an A frame shape. They look pretty in the garden but so far no gourds :(

I am also growing "Moon and Stars" watermelons. You can tell that the foliage is also speckled with stars. This is an heirloom variety. I save the seeds every year and grow them mainly because I think they are pretty.

I had fun this week trying to photograph some of my quilts outside. I am a member of "The Quilt Show", an on-line quilt show hosted by Alex Anderson and Ricky Tims. This is the 2009 block of the month quilt and this is just the center of the quilt. I am still working on the outer borders.
I am studying French so for now...Salut!
