New blooms and a guest worker

I went out to see what the garden had to offer Joseph on his birthday, and BA-ZOING!!! WHOAA. He was given an exotic wonder of a bloom, (thanks again to an austin garden bloggers plant swap!) I am not sure that Joseph was too excited about this gift but as it was sort of my birthday too, I mean, I did most of the work that day, I was very appreciative.
Isn't it amazingly scrumptious!?! I love the splotches of orange on yellow. I have to say, I find orange a very satisfying colour in flower blooms.
Then my eye went a little lower, and I spied this tiny little worker, who I immediately hired to take care of all button-hole sewing projects I may have in the future. He seemed good with that plan, as clearly this is his area of expertise.
I don't even think my sewing machine could do this careful a job...


  1. That is a great picture of the spider / web. New to your blog- great shots!

  2. What an interesting little spider web -- I've never seen that pattern before.

  3. Thank you so much for the comment Katherine. I have enjoyed visiting your nursery.
    Marjie, isn't that an amazing web. And the cool thing is, that it has been made over the more usual looking web, which I think is faintly visible around it....

  4. I have a very similar canna - maybe the's the most lovely shade of orange. Not many gardeners love orange in the garden. I do though - glad to know I'm not alone :)

  5. Hey Cat, maybe the canna came from you? Did you take it to the garden bloggers swap at Pam's? If so, thank you! I love it!
