Bloomin' Tuesday ,Randomness, Surprise & an Update

Linking up with Jean for Bloomin' Tuesday.
Dwarf Canna - Delish!

I love to let the garlic flower..
Reminds me of a stocking cap from a Dr. Seuss Book..

Pileated Woodpecker on the house.
Mississippi Kite
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The girls get out of school for the summer this week, yippee!  We have so many projects planned.  Number one is getting the downstairs apartment painted, decorated and organized for crafting...
Yesterday our oldest daughter that lives in Daytona Beach surprised us with a visit.  I was on the upper back deck, watering containers when I glanced through the window pane on the kitchen doors and thought to myself, that looks like ...oh my goodness..that is...AMANDA CHALAE'... she had camera in hand to capture my expression.  She got all of us real good...what a precious surprise!

We walked around the yard and she wanted to take some photos of  me....sigh.   I wanted to show you how she can make collages with her phone, cool huh?

We were also blessed with a visit from DH nephew and his adorable girlfriend, they were visiting from Mississippi
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
My in-laws seem to be adjusting a little more everyday to their new living arrangements.  Thanks to all of your good wishes for them.

Slowly but surely I will be around to catch up with the recent activity in your world.

**Remember to have a moment or two of silence in honor of this Memorial Day.**

Beautiful photos. The garlic flower unfurling is really cool. And seeing the pleated woodpecker hanging from the rafters is an amazing shot.

Hi Darla Dear, I love that pink canna!

How nice of Amanda Chalae to visit. I'm glad everyone is doing okay. Did Beryl miss you altogether?

I hope you have a great time with your daughters home this summer.

I'm planning on watching the show this week. Let's compare notes. :)
