Spring inspiration

I haven't been quilting much lately, but I have been gardening. Spring was late this year in the Cape due to all the cold, wet weather we had, but all the rain paid off in beautiful flowers! Over-flowing lobelia, verbena, dianthus, salvia, pansies, and snap dragons.
The climbing roses (Soeur Emmanuelle - DELamo) have also finally put on a show! And they smell divine! I love French roses. It's hard to believe that this rose is not even 1-year old yet. 

Inspired by spring, I made myself another dress with New Look pattern 6776. The fabric is by Free Spirit - Deena Designs London. As it was 31 degree C (87 F) today, I wore it to work :)
