Fields of Clover...and some Crochet

I'm back from my stay at my daughter's house, taking care of their dog while they went camping.  I actually came home Saturday night, but on Sunday Rick and I had a 45th anniversary party to attend.  I have been busy most of today, but decided to take a break and do a blog post. 
Behind my daughter's house, right now, is a gorgeous field of clover.  And you know what that means, don't you?  Butterflies!  I was in heaven!  lol  
No butterflies in this first pic, just the pretty flowers!
Butterflies!




This Killdeer stopped by on Friday as I was getting their mail. :)

The bluebirds were quite busy getting food for their babies.

Even Ollie enjoyed the clover field!!

Laura's Columbine

My "helper" while I was there.  ;)

Couple more pretty wildflower shots.



And last, but not least, the crochet I managed to get done while I was there. First up some dish/wash cloths. The pattern info can be found directly on the pictures.  All crocheted items are done with cotton yarn.

Some coffee sleeves

And a few of the stretchy headbands.  I put little flowers on these ones this time.

I also made some ice pop holders for the kids.  This is a pic I posted on Facebook via Instagram.  I'm anxious to see if the kids like them.  I put the props back in Laura's fridge when I was done with the photo shoot.  ;)  There is no pattern for these.  I just did my own thing.  :)

Well, I best go work on supper.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Enjoy your week!  :D
