I really want to stick with having some decent time every month on Houses of Hawk Run Hollow, considering I started this back in January of 2005 and am only on my fourth block.... I really enjoy this one! I still have to fill in more of the Legacy Blue around the diamonds, which are so colorful. And, I did get the outline of the house finished tonight. I think this block should be finished soon as long as I continue to fit in time for it. After I finish the sampler I will be free to work on Village of Hawk Run Hollow - I really do want to finish HOHRH first. (Are the ladies who joined this SAL still working on it? I have been wondering, as I have not heard from any of you lately... am I alone now?)
Daylily: Cherry Eyed Pumpkin - a bug free photo today - LOL! Someone asked about the Japanese beetle on yesterday's daylily. I called it an unfriendly visitor because they are so destructive - especially to my roses, but also to the daylilies. You can even see a wound on one of the petals - made, most likely, by that beetle - argh. Most of my daylilies are done now, although a few later blooming and extended blooming varities are still turning out blooms. This is yet another photo from Mike's huge photo gallery he has been taking all summer long. **Oh my goodness! It is NOT bug-free - I just noticed little tiny ants on it - too funny! Well... that's gardening! Flora and fauna...
There was a request by someone for what type of digital camera we use - Mike and I use very different cameras, and I believe the request was regarding his - I don't know, I will have to check with him. I will blog that answer tomorrow. The quality of the photos has a lot to do with his talent - his father was an Air Force Photographer and I believe he taught Mike some good tricks.
