Memorial Day

Hope you are having a good Memorial Day! We are going to my brother's later for a family cook out.
This flower basket reminds me a little of the beautiful one that you posted but it's not as big and no blue Lobelia but that's ok I like it fine. I always forget my plan of sticking to one color theme (different shades of Pink) and start buying anything that catches my eye.

Missouri Iris

Finally caught a mild, windy day. Luckily, the rain hadn't knock all of them down. It's been so windy around here lately, I can't capture any of the flowers in their prime.

Pink Peony

Got to go outside for awhile this afternoon before the rain ran me back in. Cleaned a little in the large flower bed under the tree but I have so much more to do I may never get it all done.
I know I had more work to do but had to take some time to snap a few pictures of this before the rain beats it down. Love the smell of this flower.

When I see an image with this Hazy look I always say to myself... WOW I like that.... but when I do it I'm never quit sure.
Same Image both ways.....What do you think?????

Images from Canaan Valley

Seneca Rocks - This image doesn't show just how really amazing these are, they truly are quit a sight. Should have tried to get one from the side to show how narrow they are.
I can't believe people really climb them...Wish I could still do something like that.

This is an Early Settlers Home on display in the Seneca Rock park . I doubt they were really this nice,but maybe. Wish you could see the rain barrel better beside the front porch. Wouldn't that be nice to wash your hair in. Would make it nice and soft.

An Herb garden in front of the house.

I have never grown beans this way. Guess they need to be pole beans to grow up a pole....LOL We always plant bush beans and I can't wait to pick, cook and eat some. I'm so looking forward to all the good things from the garden.

I'll bet this has seen plenty of work.

Finally found time today to get the laptop out to transfer these pictures to this computer so I could work on them and get them ready to post.

We've had so much rain in the last week that I don't think we will need any more this summer.

I know that's not true..... We'll probably need some next week but I'm ready for some sun.

New Decorations

I finally found something for my fireplace opening. Had seen this little stool in a window on my way to work and had plans to check it out on the weekend. On Friday night, I noticed it was gone and figured it had been bought. I decided to go see if they had anything else I couldn't live without and lo and behold, the stool had just been moved to a different spot in the store. I ended up having to cut about 4 inches off the bottom to make it work with my other stuff but love how it turned out. Gives my fireplace a more primitive look that blends with the mantel decor better than before.

Mother's Day 2010

I had blueberry pancakes for breakfast. Opened the bottle and noticed this for the first time. How long has it been there? I have no idea, but it caught my attention this time. Have a Wonderful Mother's Day!

Don't these remind you of fiesta-ware dishes? I fell in love with this color combination and think I'll do a few pots up like them and add them to my privacy fence along with some colorful wall hangings. I've seen some colorful suns, flowers, bugs, etc. in magazines and like the look. Give my back yard some fun, colorful appeal.
