Bugs,flowers and sunshine!

On days like this, in Sunny California I have a hard time staying in doors. The weather these past few days has been so delightful that I feel myself salivating.  I can wear my flip flops and my Bermuda shorts. It is great! I hope it lasts for awhile. So instead of sewing I have been outside in the yard mainly. I wanted to share with you some pictures of our poppies.

Now the great thing about poppies are that they are a wild flower so even the blackest of thumbs like mine can grow them.
I love African Daisies too and those are supposed to be impossible to kill,but it is not true. I managed to kill them twice. I think I was supposed to water them or something ridiculous like that.
On a side note the bugs are going nuts around here,especially the pincher bugs and the ants!RRRRRRRR!
Squished Hahaha!


  1. Your poppies are beautiful! We have a lot of Black Eyed Susan's around here..they grow wild everywhere here in S Arkansas.
    Our big bug problem here in the south is water bugs! They come out of no-where so we had the bug man come out early! But I'm afraid nothing kills them..except a good, solid, shoe covered foot!!!

  2. Hi! Thank you for stopping by my blog today! I love your blog it looks like you are one talented sewing mom! I wish I was a bit more talented in that area! Pretty flowers too! I am your newest follower :o)

    I hatttteeee bugs! Vinegar water helps with the ants. Not sure about the pincher bugs though

  4. Your poppies are gorgeous Connie! I have such a black thumb too. I can kill the unkillable. :) I can't wait for warmer weather here and get my buns outside! I need some fresh air and flip flops sound fantastic!!!
    Thank you for all your sweet comments too, I enjoy your visits. :) The tempest is a beautiful photo, I think it actually came up on google when I was searching.
