Tuesdays This and That: May 23, 2023

 Happy Tuesday!

The Philadelphia Museum of Art has an exhibit right now of Kanthas.  These are quilts made by the women of Bengal and features textiles from 1870 to 1970.  You can read about the exhibit here and here.  I have often been fascinated by these pieces and even considered buying one before the pandemic.  


I heard from a reader named Kathleen McMusing last week.  She has a wonderful blog with tutorials and patterns.  You may want to explore her blog here.


Many thanks for all the wonderful photos you have been sending for Flower Friday!  My feature of the month is my Weigelia bush which has left me breathless.  It's a fountain of pinks!

The nice thing about this bush is that when the flowers fade, I'll trim and guess what?  I'll get another blooming.  The second blooming won't be as amazing as the first but I sure do love whatever blooms on this bush.

If you have a show stopper in your garden, please let us know when you email photos.  Flower Friday is so popular and I'm sure gardeners will appreciate recommendations!

Have a safe and happy day!


  1. We transplanted our Weigelias hoping they would conceal the generator, but they apparently don't like their new location.

  2. How sweet of you to share my blog! The flowers in PA are always so much further ahead than we are in New England this time of year...my peonies won't bloom for at least another 2 weeks (I could be wrong but they have a way to go).
