I Like Thursday # 99 ~"A Few of My Favorite Things"


Good Morning from my secret garden!

Thankful 13                                     

It is Thursday so I linking up today with my blogging friends, 

I Like Thursday Bloggers @ Not Afraid of Color

to share the small joys of life. 

My garden is not really a secret and the gate is open.

My favorite rose, New Dawn, is blooming.

The scent is so light and sweet.

These roses are only two years old, 

as the gate was first featured in my

 I Like Thursday # 17 in June 2019.

This spring, we added the patio blocks and the small white table on the left.

Mr. Scrapatch needed a place to sit when he sets up our deep fryer. 

This place seemed to only collect stuff like our garden tools, leaf bags, etc,

so a beautification plan was in order. 

Despite the heat index of over 100F this week,

 we did get most of our window boxes, baskets and pots planted this week.

While I was sitting and enjoying my garden, I did finish my 

Simple Stitches Bumble Bee Embroidery. 


Favorite Freebie of the Week:

Looking forward to this 

Macaron Mystery @ Meadow Mist Designs

I have the perfect focus fabric for this mystery ready and waiting!

This fabric is a 2020 collection and I bought it on sale because I loved it.

It is Pardon My French by Dear Stella 

and may still be found 

 @ Hawthorne Supply 

and on Etsy and other places. 

I also have a yard of the large scale street scene print.
Maybe a border? 
Time will tell.

Looking forward to searching my stash for colors 

that will coordinate with this fabric.


Favorite Movie of the Week:

Sound of Music 

While watching BBC's Call the Midwife
I got up to the 1965 episode that features this movie. 
 It was a favorite then and it still is now.
I found it on Disney Plus. 
Spring is one of my favorite seasons.

Strawberry season has arrived to my corner of the world.
So it is time for one of Mr. Scrapatch's favorite desserts,

Mmmm... so good! 

Well, that is my flowers and fabric and fun and tasty
 moments for the day.

Happy Thursday!

Caught up on your posts much good stuff to read.
Macaroons on fabric and that street scene fabric are both so perfect. How fortunate to find them. Your garden is lovely and the rose is such a delicate pink.
There is nothing like the taste of fresh strawberries. Enjoy; ours will ripen the first week of July usually.

Hi Pat! Your garden looks beautiful. Once it cools down a bit, I'm sure you will be outdoors and able to enjoy it. The scent must be heavenly with those gorgeous roses. And those strawberries make my mouth water. Strawberry and rhubarb together are one of my favorite kinds of pies. YUM! ~smile~ Roseanne
