Our Peonies are so beautiful this year and they smell so good:
Our deck is ready for enjoying the outdoors before it gets too hot. Frogs are out as well as the table:
The swing and CR's 2 bbq's are ready for action - in fact he did a beer can chicken last night:
We planted the buckets on the deck last week. I like to plant the million belles and this year I also planted a spike plant in each basket. Both require very little to keep blooming all summer long - which is good because I am not a green thumb:
Our leaf bird bath has seen a lot of action already, and my metal quail family:
A gorgeous yellow rose we planted in honor of my Grandma:
A beautiful purple plant that I never remember the name of but I love it:
Close up of the yellow rose:
Lots of bird activity and squirrels climbing the tree outside of the window keep the boys entertained:

I'm feeling better than I was when I last posted. It's hard to hear from someone you care about that their time on this earth is limited. And yet all of us have a limited amount of time on earth, it's just that we may not know the when and where and why of it all. So what I plan to do is be a good friend, write, text, call and be there to listen when needed. This is all I can offer at this point because my Husband and Aunties are my priorities in life right now. I can only do so much and it's hard to make decisions like this, but in my heart this is the right decision for me.
I'm busy working on a cat and dog wall hanging for the Aunties, a baby quilt for a friend and I've now gathered all the fabrics for the top of a 108x108 bed quilt for us. Lots of sewing to do.
What are you up to?
Happy Stitches and Hugs,
