Another Heart for Valentine's Day

I made this heart block using a few strips from my smaller pieces of pink fabric. I chose the black background to make the pinks "sparkle". Now I have to decide what I will do with this block.
I found a tutorial via http://http// that Jacquie from made available for any one to do. They are both great sites to visit.

From my Garden.......

This is one of the flowers on our pink hibiscus plant. Quite a few years ago we gave my mother a pink hibiscus plant and this flower is from a plant my mother grew from a cutting.
This is a picture of one of our pink dahlia flowers. They always look so pretty.
Here are some of the fruit of our tomatoberry plants. Every day there are more to pick from the bushes. These tiny tomatoes are a strawberry shape hence the name tomatoberry. These plants were a new variety out this summer. There is nothing like a fresh tomato straight from the garden. They are delicious!

The fluted bowl holding the tomatoberries is one of my mother's and of course is now one of my treasures.

Full Moon and reflection of a Sunset

Last Saturday at dusk I noticed the full moon.

This is how it looked later when it was night time.

Our house is built on a steep block so we do not get to see a sunset. Sometimes we get to see the reflection of the sunset on the trees. The reflection of the sunset puts a pink glow on the trees around us.
