Lime Green Trees and the Fence

This post is really for my son, Mark in San Francisco. I wanted to show him how beautiful the plants and trees that he planted last fall have become. And to give him an update on the fence that Mr C has constructed.

Look at these gorgeous lime green Japanese Maples:





Here is the fence. We picked out a black oak stain. Mr C wanted it to blend in with the trees in the back and to match the trim on the house. It looks very nice. He spent half a day yesterday and most of today painting. He has about 3 panels to go.




I am working to finish the passages piece for the Columbia Stitchery show next week. I am doing some hand stitching with Perle cotton before I do the backing and machine quilting.

Don’t forget to send me our bumper sticker photos and click the bumpersticker to see the photos that have come in so far.

    I took photos of my son with his NJROTC friends and a cadet who will be going in the Army in a few weeks.

    Thank-you so much for send it to me.
