Mosaic Cup and Saucer

I finished the cup/saucer and filled it up with some pretty flowers. It took 700 tiles to complete this one. Thought I would never finish! (-: The butterfly I purchased at my local garden center and glued on and grouted around.
It has been to hot to be outside lately. I don't feel like staying outside when it is like that. Hopefully we have some cooler days coming. (-:
Have a great weekend!

Seriously Summer

It was 102 degrees yesterday and now today it is 105 degrees so far. I am not ready for this. I was so enjoying the cooler temperatures. All my flowers are screaming at me. I had a fun day yesterday shopping for garden items. Hit all the nurseries and garden shops. It was quite a fun day. Here is a cute mermaid I found.

The sun was not in my favor today. But you have to take my word on how absolutely beautiful my new mermaid is. I am going to call her Merry.
 
 
Merry on the sink with the other things.

 
 
A close up.

 
I will take some more pictures when the sun gets less bright. When will that be?
I also got these nice mushrooms.
 
 
I am working on a mosaic project. I hope to finish it this week. I am about done. I used an old cup planter I had that was ready for the trash. I decided it would make a nice project for this. Here is a sneek peek of the cup. I sprayed it black first. I have a saucer too but didn't take a picture of it.
It is going in the butterfly garden so I am using orange for its color. Check back later in the week and I should have it all finished up.

New Sedum

I am excited to have found this new Sedum Eline online.(-:
Can't wait till Fall to see it bloom.
Last fall I was visiting blogs and found a similar one. I knew I had to have one for myself. So the search was on. I found this one and it seems quite close to the one I found.
The person who had the blog did not know what the name was, and in fact thought it was a volunteer. I will post a picture in the Fall when Eline blooms.
