Moving Forward

We went to Ash's Flower Farm today and got some plants for the front bed. We got a red-twig dogwood tree, as well as four Nandina shrubs. The Nandina are evergreens, and are also called "Heavenly Bamboo" although they are in no way related to bamboo. I am pretty excited about the plants. We are going to hold off on planting them until our house gets painted, though, because we don't want to risk the painters smashing them with their ladders, etc.

I have finished another cross stitch Christmas ornament and started another one. The finished one is for a set of friends of ours who are getting married in October; it's an "Our 1st Christmas" design. The one I'm working on right now is for my niece; it's a little girl with a bow in her hair and it says, "Ya better not pout!" above her head. Super cute.
