My mother used to say "it's a beautiful day. Go outside and play!" so I did.
I love pansies and every year I make an effort to get some planted and potted up. I do this before I start the yard clean up. I find doing a little beautification first, helps with the later.
Here is a new pot I got at Home Depot. I really looks copper from a distance.
I use these window box liners on my stone walls by the back gate. Look at coco waiting patiently for me, what a good pup.
All yellow pot - I love these mini daffodils.
I think blue pansies are my favorite.
Here is a redo that started last fall. I had Andrew pull out the ground cover that was in this bed. I intend to plant it with annuals. It is a tough spot, dry and shady.
After. I suppose I should endeavor to take the photo from the same spot, for maximum effect. As my dear friend Mary B. would say "that's a nice improvement".
I even played with my wagon, a real back saver.
The herb garden loved the mild winter.
I was so delighted to see this primrose that Pauline gave me last spring. "Hello gorgeous."
I'm off to a guild quilting retreat this weekend on the Delaware River at the Shawnee Inn.
I'll be working on 2 red and white projects (among other things), which prompted this last bit of fun. I turned these:
I think these are great retreat treats for the following reasons:
no sticky fingers
hard crunchy outside
sweet chewy inside
"How many licks does it take to reach the center of a totsie roll pop? The world may never know".
And finally, I had Mr. Random Number Generator choose a number for the Lancaster CD giveaway at it is:
#31 which is Regan of Floating on a Quilted Cloud.
Congrats. Send me your address and I'll mail it out first thing Monday.
Whatever you find yourself doing this weekend I hope you make it FUN!
