I'm here !!!!

I still don't have a lot of time to blog and spend a lot of time on the internet so I'm still very late in my blog comments. I check your beautiful work in my google reader but can't really comment. We are still at my parents's while they are on vacations with Pierre and Emma. They are doing well and they are lucky to have a better weather than us. (not fair .... ) Once again, my mom is disapointed by my brother's behavior so I'm not sure they will go back next year (even though she already said that last year ... )

I took time to take some pictures of my little garden this morning. I want to show my yellow rose that has some pink around the each petal. Click to enlarge to see better. This is our first pink rose. I wasn't sure it will bloom this year as we planted it in may.
And this is a view of my three rose bushes. I planted some red impatiens to make a border.
And this is my glaieuls; they were all supposed only this color:
Closer view:
But surprise:
We got some orange as well ! That's why I may not buy my flowers in a supermarket next year ....

And this is a view of the house with our flower on the windows. The neighnor's house seems so empty close to ours because he has no flower at all !!!
We planted some cosmos flowers along our wall with our neighbor but not all of them grew that much. Maybe we waited too long to sow the cosmos seeds.
We have also some Centaurea. Emma had sown some seeds and here they are. But it took us to time to plant them so not all are as tall as the ones you see. They can be blue, purple, dark purple or pink but we got mostly purple ones.
My squirrel? still here of course. I got so tired of the 1/2 on the top that I gave up that part to stitch the bottom where they are still plenty of 2/2. I know I'm going to pay that big time after I'm done with the 2/2 so get ready for a lot of whinning in the coming weeks !!! Well that is if I have time to blog ! lol ( click to enlarge ) And if you feel you missed all the stages of the squirrel, you can see the daily picture here in my webshot gallery !
Thanks again for stopping by and I hope I'll have more time soon to stop by your blogs to see your progress.

Stitching looks great. I love all your flowers - they are gorgeous. Flower boxes are one of the things I have loved most about European homes. We have them, but until my DH brings a faucet around to the front side of the house, I'm not planting them again. Go figure, they get no rain, because of the roof overhang. Hauling 10 gallons of water by hand once to twice a day is just not what I have time for, so I'm waiting! Yours are beautiful!
