Busy, busy, busy...



I haven't been very productive lately - blog-wise I mean. Didn't have time to check on my favorite blogs, nor to think about a "blogging-plan" for summer. Things have been crazy here the last couple of weeks (I've mentioned that a couple of times already, haven't I?). Hectic, really, with all the end-of-school-year activities, the birthday party galore and two girls getting sick! Tomorrow is their last day of school. And I'm SO not done with all the things I had planned for.

I did finish one of the two pull-up curtains last Friday (des stores bateaux, as they're called here), though. I might show some pictures later. Number two is all cut, and just needs to get "assembled" - Tuesday?
I haven't done any of the paperwork yet, nor did I finish planning Helena's birthday party - the "save-the-date" is the only part taken care of.

But in between the rushing, I found the time to take pictures of these beautiful flowers. I have no idea what they're called - but find them really interesting. Did you see the heart? Some of the buds at the center have opened now. So beautiful!!

The metamorphosis...







So, what are your blogging plans for summer? Just curious to know...

I'm meant to have a plan? Why did no-one tell me this? ;) I guess I'm just hoping to get through all the things I'd like to make in a fairly timely manner, and take photos as I go so I have things to blog about. Fairly modest. And get a couple tutorials up too, that's more involved and less modest!

Those are gorgeous flowers. I feel like I should know what they are but I can't quite put my finger on it!

Plans ? errrr.... to sneak in some blog posts in between the baby's naps, I suppose...

I love the flower pictures. What kind of camera do you have?
The only "plan" I have for summer blogging is simply to post pictures of projects as I have finished them. Oh, and I'm doing Sunday Stash as well.

i love those pics. i work in a office, but i'll have 15 days to vacation on july, and i'll be at home: cooking, sewing, blogging and garden work, with my man and my dogs.

Just popped in to say I think your flower is a Scabiosa of some sort. I tried growing them a few years ago without success which is why it looked sort of familiar - I think I should give it another go!

i love the flowers. they are called scabiosa or pincushion flowers. so delicate. not sure of our blogging plans, but i do want to spend less time online.

Thanks, Jacqui and Cindy for sharing your botanical knowledge!! These flowers - Scabiosa, I now know - not only look beautiful in all their different stages but they seem quite strong too - they still look fresh though we've had tropical temperatures for the last week or so!
