Back to MTM again

I didn't really stitch for long at all tonight with other things to do, but I did manage to get a start with the gold in the final corner of MTM... hopefully I will have better progress to show tomorrow.
My garden is blooming quite nicely today, but some intermittent thunderstorms during the afternoon left the blooms less than ready for photographing. I don't care much for pictures of wet blooms. I have been asked by one recent commenter if I could show my full garden... well, it goes all the way around my house and then off to different big areas on both sides, but if I find a day when one good sized section is blooming well, I will ask Mike to get a pic - he says thanks, by the way, for the nice comments on his photography :-) I will leave you tonight with this pretty picture of Yazoo Starfire daylily... this was taken one or two days ago... it is yet another of my favorites.

Tomorrow is my first day at the new office.... :-)

Stitched on today: Medieval Town Mandala

Good for your that your last corner of MTM is already half done. Thanks for sharing your daily progresses. Have fun in your new office. I'm sure it will be more fun and more confortable to work in than in the old smelly one. Ann.

I love your daylily pictures! We have several varieties at our house - some of which were brought with us when we moved to Kentucky from northern Indiana. I dug them up in the dead cold of January, but I HAD to take them with us! And I love the fact that they aren't the slightest bit affected by my horrible brown thumb! LOL!

Your progress looks great. It will be finished very soon and than you can work on all your other beautifull works. I love seeing your flowers too.
Hope you had a nice day at the new office.

I bet your next post will reveal that you are done with MTM for the month. :) And thank you for another beautiful flower picture. I hope you had a wonderful day in your new office today. Please snap a photo of the fish in the waiting area when you get a chance, will you?

Your MTM is absolutely gorgeous. One of these days I'm going to get up the courage to start one of these lovely large gardens.

Your daylily is lovely. You must have a real green thumb.
