Let's all take a deep cleansing breath.. in... out.. again. We're having lovely weather which really helps during this time of stress and worry. We all went out on the deck to enjoy the sun and fresh air yesterday and will do the same today. My big pot of daffodils are bringing much joy.
There are three varieties in this pot.
I need to pick a new one for my brass vase today.
I'm not sure which one I'll choose.. :-)
The other big pot has some Hyacinths and Tulips and Primroses.
Do you have some nice outdoors space to enjoy during this time?
Dayle snapped this photo for me.. the Star Magnolia is blooming. The garage/barn is back there with the chicken coop next to it.
Another pot with Hyacinths. When I buy a pot of blooming bulbs for home, when they are spent we put them outside in one of the planters.
Koi Report: It seems that the evil blue heron (boo hiss) caught and ate our 3 smaller koi but our big guy evaded capture and death by heron. We will need to acquire a few more so he won't be alone.
I can't remember if I named him! Do you remember? LOL!
The boys took a break from their X-boxes to come out and enjoy the weather. This is Hayden on the trampoline.
Both boys swinging.. it's been a while since they used the swings.
Dayle was cleaning the pond filter, the boys playing and me.. I'm just breathing in deep, enjoying the sunshine and trying to lower my stress level. I've been worried about not only our family but the effect this virus is having on the whole world.
It does this grandma's heart good to see our grandsons having fun.
Grandpa taking some sun and holding his darling dog. When he takes her for a walk, I often see them enjoying the day in this spot, her on his lap. Very cute.
I'm pleased to see that my white Lilac is budding out. Now I can dream of big fragrant bouquets in the house and the aroma blowing about in the yard.
When we hung this metal sign out on the deck the eggs were brown.. I noticed now that the sun has bleached them to white! I wonder if I should re-paint them brown and blue? LOL! I also note that the bowl is Cornishware!
In the evening I put more rows on Paige's blanket.
I got a text from Ginger across the road that grows the lavender. "Hey, if you need anything let us know. We need to keep our neighbors safe! 💜" I thanked her and told her we were doing okay. Then I offered her 2 dozen eggs. She then offered us some of their lavender lemon loofah soap. Win win! They sell their products online, click here - Bates Lavender Farm.
Kristi told us we had some masks out in the garage and brought them in for us. This will help.
