We had some beautiful weather here on the weekend and John and I found ourselves magnetically drawn into a couple of garden centres.

We were anxious to get some flowers on the back deck, and I started with a purse planter.

We just had a frost a couple of nights ago, but hopefully that's the last one for the season.

We've had the most lovely long weekend here.

The weather has been beautiful and to make it even better Saturday was the traditional kick off for garage sale season... just like it is every year.

There were tons of them and John and I hit as many as we could, while sparing a few minutes to stop for breakfast in between towns.

Happy Saturday Friends!


Spring has finally arrived here, and I wrote this poem to remind myself to seize the day.

This day... today. Not tomorrow... or next week... or next month... or next year. 

But today. This very day, and each and every day that follows.

One glorious day at a time.
