Things I Love On A Rainy Saturday

Bougainvillea against a wet, wooden fence.
Memories of Haiti

 Our very first potato

 A meal fit for a mouse

 Brick paths and weird tropical plants from my father

 93 years old on February 21st

 Our resident black racer who thinks she's Nessie

Navigating the Loch

Orchids in the back yard that grow themselves

Where did you come from and why do you stay?

Vines that marry

I now pronounce you Black-eyed Susan and Jasmine

 That the children have to walk under the vines to swing

Surrounded by fragrance 
 That Orange and Purple really do go together

In the garden, of course

I am so envious. The snow is finally gone and the trees are getting ready to bud out, soon.

Jane said...

These are gorgeous! You must really enjoy spending time in your yard.

Wonderful photos. The Loch Ness monster is bizarro!

It sounds like you had a quieter weekend? Did you get some rest? Noone brought that snake into the house did they?

Diane said...

Let me get some coffee and come sit in this wonderful flower garden!

Where are you, Secret Pepper Person?   Are you ok?  I miss the Teenager's insightful comments and the stories of the Boy's and the Baby's antics.  Your blog makes me feel normal when I hear myself saying things like, "Pick up the fork and put the food in your mouth" and "Stop licking the washing machine and hand me a screwdriver."

But seriously, is everything ok?  Hopefully, you have been too overwhelmed with the blessings of life to spend time blogging.
Fingers crossed.

I read in one of the older blogs that The Boy was having his rod replaced in May, and I'm hoping that's why you haven't blogged. I'm praying that everything's okay, and miss you. You ALWAYS brighten my day!

Where are you? Where is Secret Pepper Person? Your email is no longer active either -- I hope and pray that you and yours are fine.

Everything okay?

Birdie said...

Just wondering where you are.

Island Rider said...

Is everything okay? I think about you a lot, but haven't read anything new on your blog, so wondered if everything is okay. I sent you an email, but it came back undeliverable. Let me know when you have time.

What happened to you? I miss you so much.
