After a few days of continued rain, these lovely flowers sprouted from the ground to grace my garden with their beauty.
Do you see a pot of orchid at the bottom right hand corner of this photo? That orchid is one of my husband's orchid collection. It has never bloomed before. We don't know if it's because the weather is too hot in Kaohsiung or we need to place it under the shade during the hot summer days.
I feel embarrassed to say this, but does anyone know what kind of flowers (has bulbs) these are? My husband said it might be in the narcissus family! When there aren't any flowers, all we see are the long green leaves.
So, after the rain... I finished another oilcloth tote! The oilcloth is a MIT (Made in Taiwan) product. It has that English countryside/ Laura Ashley feel to it, don't you think?
This time I challenged myself to sew a tote that's made of oilcloth both inside and out. Some helpful hints when sewing oilcloth can be found at my last post.
