Mothers Day dawned bright and sunny. All 5 of my grown children plus my oldest granddaughter and oldest grandson all came out. We sat in the shade ( it was 30C (86F)) making efforts that were at times rather feeble to maintain any distance between us. The last time we were all together was Boxing Day so it was really lovely to be together.
I wonder if anyone noticed that in my last post I called this topiary Rosemary when it's obviously Spanish Lavender. I did go back and change that.
I received this beautiful card made by my oldest daughter. My photo doesn't capture the details but the little bird cage hangs from a copper wire and the backing has been cut away so you see into the card. The door and the pot of flowers are all separate pieces.
This pretyt jug was another of my gifts. I'm sure I'll find just the right spot for it.
DH has been busy fixing up the landing and stairs that go down from the laundry room into the garage. He was able to use a stack of free laminate boards and even had enough to cover the side of the landing ( you can just see part of it on the lower left corner). Today he painted the walls in the laundry room so tomorrow we can put the room back to rights again.
Everything is growing especially the weeds and enthusiastic self-sowing volunteers such as Forget-me-nots. Each day I pull a few more and hopefully I've pulled them before too many shed seeds.
Thanks for stopping by today, G.M.
