The first holiday weekend of Summer, and the garden is flourishing.
The peonies have popped and smell like heaven. (Cloudy day photos)
All this beauty hidden in a little bud.
All the memories the flower invokes... my youth, my parents and now my own home.
Puttered around the kitchen, cleaning and arranging.
Made a small improvement on my old and ugly dishwasher with a little scrapbook paper, my zyron and clear matt sealer. A little shabby, right? A big improvement. (no before photo, imagine a big black dented eyesore.) It got the babygrand's seal of approval. ;-)
These are the clouds that kept us close to home on Saturday.
Beautiful in their own way.
Capped off the Memorial Day weekend with a cookout and water fight with the family. Just us, (missing Mike) a picture perfect day, a wading pool and some dollar store toys... all topped off with s'mores. A great time was had by all, and our 22nd summer here in English Valley begins. Where does the time go?
