Just Visiting A Friend


Brenda and Debra and Sally and Claudia and Sue and Judy and Eddie and Lorraine and Linda and Judith and so many many more of my blogging friends write posts about what is happening in their lives. 

I mustn't forget DaveJildaRueDonnaAudreyCathy, Denise, Rob, LindaGail, LaVoice, Rick, Linda, Donna and many many more blogging friends that I visit whenever they post.



Blogging conversations with old friends. Making and reading comments on a friend's post about their favourite collectibles, beloved pupsters or their garden or the new colours they are trying out or what they have found while out thrifting or what they repaired and painted or how their booths look or tough stuff in their lives. 




Sharing sweet times with beloved children and grandchildren and nieces and nephews, family. 



Sometimes it is big stuff like reno of a room or making a new garden or moving or weather that makes life less comfortable.

It could be talking about dealing with taking care of very senior parents, personal health and life changes, some of the tough stuff that happens in our lives.



Today I took pictures of May blossoms in my garden; peonies, roses, oriental and iceland poppies and iris. Waiting in anticipation for the dahlia and hydrangea bounties to come.





Monday - it is my Sister's Birthday. 
Happy Birthday Gail.


It has been a year of hard work 
(sometimes not of our own choosing)
mixed and stirred into our regular lives.




Thank you for visiting.

  4. Oh my word! What gorgeous photos of your flowers. I don't think I've ever seen a prettier yellow iris. Mine didn't even bloom. And your banner! I'm newly in love with shades of orange. Especially mixed with yellow. You will see some of your finds tomorrow, first thing.
