easing into summer

The fawn was here today..it is spending more and more time with the doe. Growth is noticeable, and confidence is apparent. I love watching it run.

Sometimes, while the doe is grazing, the fawn will take to having running fits, and race all around.

The hot weather is bringing the summer flowers into bloom. The elder flowers are full, and milkweed's pinkish brown blossoms, fill the surrounding area with an intense fragrance. Sweet clovers open along the roadside, along with the wild daylily.

This is for Cathy. Cathy has cultivated some beautiful daylilies. You should go take a look!

And there has been knitting. I am almost finished with the Jaw Breaker Cardi. It needed one button. I've been playing around with making some buttons. I may settle on this one, shown on the swatch.

Beautiful lillies! I wish they grew wild here. But even the domesticated varieties struggle in the heat.

The button looks as if it formed over several thousand years! What a lovely choice. :)

Judy said...

Beautiful lillies and I love the button. I can't wait to see it all done.

Sue said...

What a great button!

I want to know more about the button! How did you make it?

Lilies have a mystical quality. I think a beautiful story could be written, gaining entrance to the land within. (maybe I need another cup of coffee? I love the button. Are you carving them?

Cathy said...

Those are wild daylilies? I am ever so envious. And the button! I love the button. What kind of wood did you use? I think you could sell these. I know I want a few!

Glad you like the button...I'm still a little undecided...

I am still experimenting with different methods, some carving, some burning..different methods work better depending on the wood.
Most of the woods are very hard, and take a long time to achieve desired results...

That's a pretty awesome button. I've never seen one quite like it before.

The fawn is so sweet... (though I might not think so if I had a garden and it was snacking on my veggies.) It's a shame they lose their spots when they grow up, isn't it?

That button is a real work of art

Oh, what wonderful photos. Great shots. And you make buttons? That is just too cool. Very nice one indeed.

They grow wild with you ? WOW I love them and have few varities in our garden
Great button you have made there, love it. I have used small pieces of driftwood before & I have used stones, shells and our local slate which comes in shades of blue green and a purpley blue
