August blows in

I have always liked August, not only for being given presents on the 10th, but for the sun that is coming back to us.

This August I was all pleased that summer was coming back and then I woke up and it was the coldest day so far this year. I still am holding out for the blossoms on our peach and plum trees in time for my birthday in a weeks time. Throughout the years I have photos of my sister and me (she is born 3 years before me on the day after my birthday) standing in front of a plum tree in the garden of the house that we gre up in, squinting into the sun as my mother took pictures of us and the blossoms. Now being old and knowing how much my mother loved her garden, I suppose we were lucky that we did not have to stand behind the tree. hee hee.

My dear jane is coming along nicely and in 2 months I have completed 20% of the quilt.

Gotta go, have a good one.
