Garden Flowers And Punch Needle...

Just when the gardens are beginning to wane in August,
the Cleome is making a big statement in the garden.
(Actually, maybe the gardens aren't waning, 
but my interest for pulling weeds is. ;)

This humble flower grows tall, (mine get 3-4 feet high),
and blooms until killing frost.

The best part is I do not plant these beauties.
They come up every year by themselves.
Their seeds are stored in long slender bean pods,
that split open when dry.  
The tiny seeds fall to the ground for next year.

Now, who doesn't like self seeding, beautiful flowers ??

A look at what I have been working on...
A new Punch Needle pattern, perfect for Autumn.
Be looking for a giveaway, just as soon as I have this project complete. ;)

Happily stitching (punching)...


  1. How pretty is that.
    I have lost all desire for the weed pulling myself.
    Weeds flowers come on fall.
    Can't wait to see what your creating.
    Woolie hugs

  2. The Cleome is so beautiful. Love the color and what a pretty punch needle design you are creating. Looks beautiful so far. Smiles, ~Nan

  3. How beautiful the Cleome and how fortunate you are to have such a beauty that takes care of itself. I'm over all the weed pulling myself. It is a never-ending job with all the rain we have been getting here in south Florida.

    I love the look of punch needle but I've never tried it. Can't wait to see what you create.

  4. I've never heard of Cleome.....it's gorgeous! And we love self-seeders! :o) The punch needle work is beautiful.....those little dots are so fun! Can't wait for the reveal!!! :O)

  5. I have never seen those flowers before I love that color so I will be looking for some of those. It is hard to find flowers in August. Your punch needle is fantastic. I really enjoy looking at your work.

  6. Don't know if I've ever seen Cleome before but it sure is beautiful, as is your new punch needle project.


  7. I like Cleome too, Rose...and like you, I'm getting real tired of weeding, and the mosquito bites I get while I'm doing it!...I love how your new design is looking. Sooo pretty! I can't wait to see it finished! xo


So glad to have you here visiting...
would love to hear your thoughts !
