Welcome to Rednesday! The Dog Days of Summer are all about us - hope you can tolerate them!

Guess what? No flowers today! More soon, though, as I'm waiting for the Hibiscus and Dahlias to bloom! In the meantime, here's a woven wastebasket that I'm presently using as a weed bucket - thrift shop find.
This is a gorgeous vintage cottage garden print by R. Atkinson Fox. I've wanted this print forever! I was able to talk the thrift shop manager down to $15 - yay!
Last, but totally not red at all, is a lovely little Clymene Moth. Notice how, if you look at it upside down, it looks like a cross on its' back!

Hi Sue!
Oh...I look forward to your Happy Rednesdays...especially, since RED is my favorite color!
How I love your Fox print! My grandmother had one very much like the one you found. Hers had a garden gate amongst the lovely flowers.
What a fascinating moth...and, oh, how wonderful to see God's fingerprint on the design.
I hope you have a good week and thank you so much for your delightful blog!
Blessings,

Can't wait to see your Dahlias Sue!

What a fun print - love the thatched cottage and abundance of flowers, so sweet. And I've never seen a moth like that before, thanks so much for sharing with us.

Happy Rednesday to you!

Hi Sue, happy to be joining you today. Love the fun basket for deadheading. I use an old bucket. The picture is a great find, and that really is a cool pic of the moth.
Hugs,
