Bananarama

I'll make this quick because a thunder storm is headed our way. I'm not sure if the banana plant is putting up a shoot or just sent up a periscope to look around.

I made jam (5 jars) of the wonderful fresh strawberries I bought at the farmers' market yesterday.

I've been working steadily on my house block for the RR neighborhood. Mail date for the RR is Friday, so I've been working hard on it this weekend. I'm enjoying everyone else's progress. Next round though, I'm starting a bit earlier. All the same, it's been fun to stitch a lot this weekend instead of tearing up and down the road.

I'll bet your jam is yummy. I used to make jam but haven't in years. Your house looks great ;)

Strawberry jam is my fav and your homemade jam looks soooo good! *drool*

I think the banana plant wants to grow but isn't too sure how to go about it. ;)

Your NRR is looking good. I adore these neighborhood things even though I've never participated in one myself. It always amazes me how all of you are so creative in your own square.
Great looking plants. Your iris is absolutely beautiful.
