Good Monday morning!
This weekend was about contradictions for me – there were some really good things and some really crappy things. I try to focus on the good so the crappy stuff doesn’t seem so crappy.
For instance, Friday was so lovely that we sat on the porch with our feet up reading for a spell. We could see the lake, hear the birds and see all the leaves and flowers waking up.
Over the last couple of weeks the weather has inspired me to wander around with my camera to capture the blooms. I was also inspired to do that while I was in a nursery, (Westland Greenhouses for the win. They have a wonderful selection and very knowledgeable staff. One took a 5 second look at a picture and said, “OH! I know what that is!), but we’ll get to those pictures. First, my own gardens – and a couple from goldi’s garden.
We’ve also been to the beach a lot and there have been some really cool finds, like this conch shell.
This weekend, the weather was just as mixed up as the events of my weekend. We had a couple of rainstorms and I managed to take this wonderful picture of one coming in off the lake.
When we went to Westland there were two plants I really liked. I managed to take a couple of pictures.
Today is a grey, humid, head-pounding day. We’re waiting for storms that may or may not arrive. The atmospheric pressure is intense. Lots of fun.
I am going to have lunch and then try to write and THEN I will get to some jewelry making. I am going to make a healing talisman for someone today. I think she needs it.
Have a great Monday, folks.
