View From My Hammock; Sunflower Quilt's Next Steps

On the weekend, and in the evenings after work I find time to go out back and lay in my hammock. I take a good book and my camera. I love looking up at my view through the vines... to the sky...this pink tree is actually over the fence in my neighbor's back yard...
I wait patiently for the hummers to come and visit me and my lilies of the Nile...
I think this delicate flower and background looks like a painting waiting to happen...
I've finished two good books recently; this one last night...I liked it, I like this author; and Salem Falls by Jodi Picoult, for which you can see my "review" on my side bar.
I know it says hot, but in the evening in the shade it's really pleasant. We do NOT suffer high humidity as some states are having right now.
And I am still working diligently on my latest Sunflower art quilt. I have actually started the sewing on top!
This is what I did before the sewing could begin...I did some stamping with bubble wrap and gold paint...and added some flower stamps to it...
I transferred some Sunflower poetry by Allen Ginsburg and Jerry Garcia (very up to date!) lol
And now the sewing can begin (and has)...
Very fitting for Blooming Tuesday, yes?
