Bugs and Flowers

 I have actually done some sewing!! Really - - - LOOK!
These blocks are to prove that I have been doing some sewing (amongst the gardening).
As you may or may not be able to see I have finished the snail block blanket stitch,am halfway through the caterpillar block and yet to start the butterfly and hearts.
My daughter has the mirror image blocks to do. These blocks are for a quilt I'm making with the help of my daughter for her BFF (Joh's) first baby. Joh is 37 and I have known her since she was a black and white sonograph picture on her grandma's mantlepiece.
We are so thrilled that she is going to be a mum at last. So this is for Joh's Bubba's Quilt
Bugs and Flowers
 Are, no doubt, amongst my favourite things. I love taking pictures of them and sewing them so I have joined up with Melody's Tuesday Treasures (sorry a bit late) and pre-empted my Floral Friday.

I know it's only Wednesday but goodness knows what I'll be doing on Friday so I thought it best to get these pics up now.
All of these shots were taken today.
One of the delicious pink daisies on my lovely plump daisy bush, below.

Above is Osteospermum fruticosum. The flowers open yellow and turn copper as they age.

My wee little Golden Delicious Tree covered in blossom.
A very busy little bee, bless her cotton socks.
Such delicate blooms.
This tiny flower looks like a paper rose, sorry I've lost it's tag.

Red Penstamon in bud, White Snapdragons and Maroon Pelargoniums
Another industrious little bee.
This tiny little spider waiting patiently for her lunch
Oops you have to be quick with the shutter.
 I hope you have enjoyed this little wander around my garden. I have loved showing them to you.
Happy Gardening and Sewing - of course!!!
