Blackberry Lily and WOYWW

I'm so excited and I just can't hide it, I'm about to lose control and I think I like it!!
(yes, over a bloom)
Two years ago Ms.Patsy sent me some Blackberry Lily seeds.  I germinated them in the greenhouse and last year I finally planted them in the garden.  The other day when I got out of my car I noticed something orange out of the corner of my eye and took a quick gasp.  Could it be?  No, not yet.  Really, I think maybe it is.  Yes, Yes it is a Blackberry Lily bloom.  I ran in the house, slung the package and my handbag on the counter and snatched up the camera...well, if you are a blogging gardener you know the rest.
Thank you Ms. Patsy!
It has been raining a lot lately.  The other day we received right at 5 inches in 24 hours.

Then I noticed one of my Clematis vines are blooming again.  Lovely!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
It's time to link up with Julia for the midweek peek at those inspiring work spaces.
I have been very busy, I have a craft fair at a local Church the first week of September.
Just ask if you want to know anything about the mess on the kitchen table.  In my last post you can see the apartment being transformed into a work/display shop.

The white and the yellow are the backs of earrings and pendants in the drying stage.
Have a Blessed week!!

What lovely pendants you have made. Lucky you to get your lily to flowers, I'm still waiting for mine to do their stuff after 2 years. Your clemetis also doing well, my hubby is a collector we have loads in the gardens. Hugs francesca #32

That's beautiful, I can't believe you grew that from seed. I have a big garden, but buy all my plants started. I love your pendants, I will look at your other posts to see where you get your images from. I make some using vintage images from an online store, Craft Fantastic, would love to know about yours.

Patsy said...

What a joy to see the blackberry bloom ,I felt the same way. when the seeds come they will look like blackberrys.
Your crafting looks like so much fun. Happy day!

What beautiful flowers. I had a clematis but it didn't do well. My honeysuckles are doing great and the hummingbirds just love them.

Your pendants are great! I've made some too for a crafts fair in November, but don't know how to price them. Do you use a formula when pricing?

Today is my one year anniversary. Blog candy will be announced soon - I'm taking a survey so pop on over and put in your 2 cents!!

Happy WOYWW

I love Blackberry lilies. I lost my orange ones to the heat. I think I have some seeds somewhere I really should plant them. :0)

Lona said...

Your Blackberry lily is so pretty Darla. I have grown some from Patsy's seeds to but I think it will be another year before I see a bloom.You are making so many pretties.

Lois said...

Everything looks so pretty Darla. I'm getting a little tired of this rain every day, but I know your gardens love it!

Congratulations on your awesome Blackberry lily! All bragging rights are yours and I salute you!

Your work desk looks wonderful. I need to check your Etsy again and I'm going to look at your previous post so I can see the apartment renovations. You've been really busy.

Just checking back to see what new posts you may have entered.
My problem is...I would mess up taking a picture of a concrete block...honestly. I do love viewing God's creation as captured through the camera of others and you have done that quite well. I have added myself to follow your blog. You are more than welcome to visit my blog and become a follower also.

Hugs,

Barbara Diane

They get you going again good as new. Find physically a good physical therapist and don't be afraid to ask for help especially carrying stuff. It is amazing how much weight the pelvic area carries even if you're holding something in your hands. That central area of the body carries a load and has to budge.
