"Ain't Nature Grand?" (As Lolo Would Say)

This teeny piece of succulent from our garden apparently broke free from the main plant, and rooted itself in a tiny crack in the rock.  Amazing.

Another of the succulents in the rock garden - love the bluish color and the ruffled edge.

This succulent looks like a perfect rosette.

This year, we mixed up the trailing plants a bit, and added some "everbearing" strawberries with pink flowers.  I loved the way this lone strawberry captured the setting sunlight.

A wider view of that planter.

This year we have a pot of all orangey-toned flowers and plants.

My favorite color combo in the colored foliage division - deep purple and lime green.

Remember when I posted the "Calling it Done" photos of the treehouse?  I knew the tidiness couldn't last back in February - or March - or whenever that was.  Here's what things looked like this morning: (All photos should be clickable for larger viewing.)
 Really?  I can't even be bothered to pull the shade up evenly?  And yes, I have empty hooks on the sides of the shelves, where I planned to string wire and make a creative little valance over the window. 
Here's another view of the room - without the interference of the light from the window:

My latest project is this Bookshelf Pixie from a pattern by Faewyck Studios.  I was given a bunch of patterns and decided to play with a few.  She just needs some finishing touches, which include finding a way to make the hat a little less perky, a little more slouchy, and stabilizing her hands to her sides:
