It's almost like summer here this week. Actually hot during the day and not a cloud to be seen. Dayle has leaped into his farmer mode and has been driving his tractor around and mowing the pasture. He also spent days working on his riding mower and has mown the yard. Things are looking nice and tidy outside.
I've been spending more time outside. Feeding the fish and snipping spent leaves and stems off of potted plants and making note of things for Dayle to deal with, manly stuff, you know. I'm helpful that way. When we're by the pond for a while we take the screens off the pond and enjoy the fish - all of which are accounted for. Keiko, Pierre, Tiger and Ashley.
Our pot of chives we keep near our back door is all lush and filled out and I see some flower buds in there.
The white lilac is nearing bloom.
So is the dark purple one, I imagine by my Monday post I will have a bouquet to share with you.
We have one patch of Bluebells and each year it's fuller. I love it!
There will be enough of them this year for a bouquet, also. :-)
Dayle got me a replacement Daphne which we need to plant and my sister Denise's gift to me at our luncheon was this beautiful blue ground-cover called Lithodora. Now to find just the right spot for it.
Shirley's xmas gift to me were these cute little jadeite salt cellars. :-)
No big weekend plans for us, just enjoying the sunshine and getting our outdoor living areas tidied up. I need to make a list! Any exciting plans on your end? Have a fun one! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
