June still

Hard to believe June is about over! Hope everyone is enjoying life and this marvelous weather. Of course there are worries. Our land in Iowa is so flooded that it causes worries.  However this helps to easy one's mind : "Don't worry about anything instead pray about everything. Tell God what you need and thank him for all he has done." Phl 4:6.
I used the pattern from mina dress for the upper part and will use this fabric for the skirt part. Hope it will be ok. The yarn is, "I Love This Cotton."
 Banana, almond milk, protein powder and blueberries. I read that blueberries are good for the brain.
 My lovely potted peach color Lantanas.
 Afternoon tea and a treat.
 Projects and readings

 In Iowa
 Iowa - mom-in-law's flowers.
 Iowa cardinal
 mom-in-law's backyard
 view from her front door. It looks so green with all the rains they had.
 Done, finally got the pixie cap done for granddaughter and will send it soon so they may use it for photos. You can make this to give as a gift to a new mom, it's very easy to make. Pattern here.
 Rhubarb custard pie links here and here. I decided to place the rest of the batter in the pie but I don't recommend anyone to do that. It got it wayyy too full.
 Now that this tree in front of the house is flowering it's full of bees and other insects.
 The tree that attracts bees!
 Some of potted plants
 In my herb garden
 somewhere by front door...I have weeded it since this photo.

Wishing you a lovely end of week and peaceful 4th of July for those who are in the US.


  1. Such a geautiful post Angela. I always enjoy them.

  2. Are those hydrangeas around your mom in law's house? They are beautiful! I wish I could grow holly hocks. I grew up with them growing all around the house but I can't keep one alive. I need the old fashioned ones.
    I like your tea mug with the verse. It is so true.
    Everything looks like it's growing healthy at your home and your Mother in law's also. Have a wonderful rest of the week. Can't believe July is upon us. Will be Christmas shopping before long.

  3. Those plants they call "snow ball." I like hydrangeas also! Indeed July is about here already and like you said Christmas will be around the corner soon. Thanks for your visit Betsy.

  4. The tree with bees is a species of Tilia.

  5. Thank you so much for your beautiful photos and nice words. Be blessed!
    Warm greetings from Finland!
    PS: Blueberries are soon ready to pick up also in our country.

  6. So many beautiful photos of summer, Angela! It looks like a lovey and colorful season in your neck of the woods. Enjoy the last few days as we slide into July. Can't wait to see what you'll have to share with us then!

  7. Such sweet summer days, Angela. Love the baby things and all the pretty flowers. Your Mother-in-law's home is in such a pretty setting. My Mom always grew hollyhocks, too. Happy Independence Day! xx Karen

  8. Nice to have summer. But now that the midsummer is over, it seems that the end of summer is near ... The weather has been varied here; sun and warm, on the second day rain and cold. But still enjoy the summer :)


  10. Hello,

    Oh, amazing !


  11. Everything looks so beautiful and green.. sorry to hear about all the rain and flooding.
    It's been so hot here our grass is starting to burn.

  12. I love the scripture verse you quoted (Don't worry, just give it to God and continue to thank him for all he has done and continues to do for us) and I love your mug! With God, All things are possible! I remind myself of that daily. All of your flowers are so pretty! I am eating lots of blueberries this summer, too. I made a blueberry coffee cake yesterday, and it was so good! I really enjoyed this post, Angela! Hope you are having a nice summer.
