During the past two days of rain storms, Queen Alexander made her royal appearance. I think she is one of the most beautiful of the oriental poppies with her light salmon-pink blooms. I thought she arrived alone, until I peeked inside.
I do love to photograph these white spiders.
I like the combination of this smokebush and the pink/purple iris's:

If you love Vidalia onions, as we do, you may want to get some and freeze them before they are gone.
a few people asked me why I cook them before freezing... I only cooked them because it takes at least 30 minutes to get a properly caramelized onion and sometimes I don't have that long. So I caramelized them and froze them in little packets, so they would be done when I needed them. I also save the time of washing the frying pan and all the stove splatters every time I want a few onions. I am all about cook one--eat twice (or more!). I will freeze more raw and chopped to use for non-caramelized uses.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
