Back to the Scrappy Circles

So this was the plan last month  - 48 x 64 interior and borders.

Now it is going to be 20 blocks - 64 x 80 interior and borders.  It looks a bit of a hot mess right now.
It was so gray outside and even with a flash it looks like a grey background.
Today was Table of Grace.  We shopped in the down pours  but it was fun cooking weather when we got back to church.  We made roast pork loin with an orange cranberry glaze, stewed potatoes, green beans, corn pudding and a cherry pineapple dump cake for dessert for those who braved the rain to join us.

Saturday afternoon I spotted these peony blooms from my kitchen window.  This is a plant I have had for several years but it never seems to produce more than 2 or 3 flowers.  But they are striking!

The Siberian Iris are near their peak.

This is a single yellow knockout rose. They are just starting and by next week will be covered in their first bloom of the season.

I brought the peonies in so I could enjoy them before the rain took them.
