My gardening chores took longer than expected yesterday, and that left only a little time for quilting in the afternoon. I'd walked past our rose bush many times, which had several suckers that needed clipping. Also, a wild blackberry growing among some junipers. Both of these tasks required gloves to remove them, and so it was easier to just keep walking by. Yesterday, I couldn't stand it any more, and so I had to take care of all of that as I walked toward the vegetable garden. When I reached the vegetable garden, I found plenty of weeds to hoe. Also, a zucchini for harvesting and several more pickling cucumbers. I hope I can get enough cucumbers soon to do some pickles. So far, I have about ten...not enough to fill even a quart jar. There are lots of tiny ones coming, and they grow quickly to the size I'm looking for.
As for the blooming things, this spring-blooming clematis is blooming for a second time. It's the first time I've ever seen it do that.
