The Weekend Begins


I spent last evening outside on the front porch.  We (finally) had a nice evening - comfortable temperature, no wind.  I bounced back and forth between watching the birds and stitching.

A bit more on "Bluebird Alphabet". Maybe I'll get it finished this weekend.
  
I then strolled around the house to see what was up...

The Scotch Moss caught my eye...

And I'm so pleased - I think my "Red, White and Blue" plantings are going to be fabulous in time for the 4th of July this year.

The begonias are happy with the cool weather...

And this swatch of daisies seemed to say, "It's a care-free day!"

Today is starting out gray and cloudy - I've a neighborhood picnic to attend at 2:00pm so we will hope for some improvement in the weather by then.  I hope you are able to enjoy your weekend.

Lovely patch of daisies, so pretty. I hope your weather improves for the picnic. It's our local "gala day" and it's completely miserable - I got soaked through this morning.
