Good morning. Tis rather cloudy today, but temps are expected to reach the low 70's by late morning. We may even get a few showers. The gardens will love this.
Well let me tell you, Pogo and I did it!!! We got the GPS working, and found our way to our rendezvous with Aunt Lucy yesterday. Are we proud? You betcha!! However, now that I've sort of figured out this contraption, I'm sure there's a brand new updated one right around the corner and I'll have to learn it all over again.
The shopping trip was quite a success. Aunt Lucy was able to find some things that she's been needing at a Michael's store, and I bought some new yarn. I'm not sure what I'll make with it but the colors were irresistible. This first one is called "Fiesta" and the second one is "Stonewashed".
Next we went to a Dollar Store. Aunt Lucy had never been in one and she had a grand time. We both found a few things that we needed, especially me. I bought myself a whole bag full of "word find" puzzle books, and a few of the large print puzzle books for Aunt Lucy. Pogo met a whole lot of new people, and we all had a grand time.
Because Pogo can't go into a restaurant, our next stop was at the McDonald's for some take out. We parked close by some rather pretty bushes and flowers and enjoyed our lunch. I gave Aunt Lucy one of my robin prints that I had done on canvas. She's a bird watcher, and she loved the photo.
Finally, it was time to head for home. We had a really fun day, and we'll have to do this again soon. Shopping is such fun when someone is enjoying it with you.
Today I have some photos that I took a couple days ago in my garden. A few years ago, we planted some pink, orange and light blue iris bulbs, and only the light blue one grew and blossomed. Well guess what?? There is a tall iris plant with huge orange buds on it that will be blossoming soon. I can't wait to see it when the flower opens.
These are two more of the iris blossoms. They're huge and they are gorgeous!
And, here's a view of some of the peonies and roses. They also have lots of buds that will open really soon. I think those are Sweet Williams in the background. My backyard is full of them.
Well, that's my news for this morning. I have a sink full of dishes to wash now, and then I think I'll crochet a bit while I watch "Let's Make A Deal." So, till Sunday, Y'all have a fantabulous weekend.
Hugs, Edna B.
