This is a cheap-o rose bush I bought at Fred Meyer. Having it in a planter on our little porch is an experiment, and so far the deer haven't found it. I'm impressed it's doing this well. LOTS of new growth.
Primroses, impatiens, and ivy I'm training on a topiary. The birds' nest was exposed in the trees last fall, once all the leaves came down.
And this was my yesterday-project. One of my favorite bloggers posted this pattern for a market bag and invited her readers to post their creations on flickr. Now that I've made one, I want to burn through my fabric stash and make some more!
