Happy Independence Day

Happy 4th of July! I don’t have a red, white and blue quilt to show today. I have made a few, but they have all been donated to veterans in the Quilts of Valor program. That’s a good thing. 

The weather here in eastern Pennsylvania has been lovely, cool in the mornings with low humidity so I have been walking at Longwood Gardens. The water lilies are in full bloom. My favorites are the lotus flowers.

I think their huge, flat leaves are as interesting as the translucent flowers. 

I saw this worker, carefully brushing the grass in one direction. 

The following day, the design was revealed, Stars and Stripes! I hope you have a wonderful 4th of July, with family and friends, barbecues and picnics and the evening ends with a Big Bang!

  1. I’m trying to wrap my head around the idea of strolling through Longwood every day. You lucky duck! I agree…the water lilies are lovely, and so are the leaves! And to think that gardener patiently brushed a design in the grass by hand. Makes the photo all the more wonderful and patriotic! Happy fourth, a bit late.
