Treasure Found While Weeding...

Look what I found in the yard yesterday. Isn't it a beautiful color? Miss M. says it is a Robin's egg...

Talking about eggs: Penny & Howard have been sitting on the five eggs diligently for two weeks now so I'm expecting something to happen real soon. That is of course if the eggs are fertilized. We shall see...

And look at some of these other pretty 'finds' in the back yard yesterday...

Lots of color everywhere!


Bee in the Tomato flowers

Hopefully we will have more of these skies today...

Leak pod...
The temperatures are close to average again so I am expecting the Peonies to bloom any day now. They got so heavy with all the rain we had earlier this week, I was afraid they would break, but so far so good...

This morning I will be off to Joann Fabrics. Always an 'expedition' of sorts. I make an extensive list at home of things to look at and special coupons etc. It takes me 45 minutes to get there so I have to make it worth my while. After that I have only one lesson at Little Bit and then we are ready for a long weekend since they are celebrating Memorial Day here in The States.

Miss M. has been invited to spend the weekend at Mount Hood, just east of Portland, Oregon (lucky duck!) and the rest of the family has no real plans yet. If our boys' varsity soccer team wins their semi-final today then they will be in the State Finals tomorrow so then we will be going there. (it is in Sumner for those of you in the area)

Hope you all have something fun planned for the weekend? Enjoy!

I will leave you with some birdie pictures I took through the window a couple of days ago...

Baby  Grosbeak (I think...)

No idea what this one is called,
but it looked very cheeky... <wink>

Flooded waters...

With all the recent rainfall and snow melting in the mountains, some flooding occurred once again in our valley. Yesterday, whils...
