My garden in May and Maine Fiber Frolic 2010

Looking toward the orchard. We have pear, peach and plum trees. I love gardening (read "weeding". Well, I do get to plant things too). It is my little paradise.
The bearded iris are just starting to bloom. With polygonum bistorta, lamb's ears and ranunculus.
Looking towards the garden.

Siberian iris.
I love lemon daylilies.
And poppies.

The edge of the porch. We grow rosemary.
We had great fun at Maine Fiber Frolic last weekend! In addition to sheep, goats, rabbits, fleece, yarn, spinning wheels and a million other wonderful things, they had a "Make It with Fiber In Maine" competition.
Here are some of the wonderful entries.
This is a felted painting.

It was a great fiber festival!
See you all at TKGA's Knit and Crochet Show, Manchester, New Hampshire July 9 and 10.

Who mowed the grass!

These are pictures of one of the BEST places in the world. Especially good for recovering from festivals!

Beautiful garden. I love looking at it from here because it's work-free for me! Those entries from the festival are amazing--especially that felted painting!

Thank you all for your comments! There's lots of weeding to do still, but I love doing it.
Unlike my husband, who is not a happy mower.
Yes, the felted painting was amazing, very painterly.

The peonies will be in bloom soon!
