Yesterday I finished putting together this year’s container plants and hanging baskets and also planted a few hostas I’d bought. When I was younger, I could go all day with the yard work and the housework but now . . . not so much.
After putting away all the tools, I showered and changed and took a book outside to sit in the sun and read.
I brought the bouquet that I received from my sons outside and used the beautiful light on the porch to take some macro shots.
I also made this lovely summer drink. (It’s not non-alcoholic).
1/3 lime, cut up
packet of Splenda
vodka (I used Skyy)
Mull the lime with the sugar, using a wooden spoon (crush the sugar into the lime). Fill glass with ice. Pour vodka to 1/3 full; top with club soda.
It’s yummy. Or you can leave the vodka out if you like and just use club soda.
I think I like this shot the best (the one above).
It was crazy windy here in Maryland today.
These flowers are so beautiful and I’m blessed to have my sons.
Today we’re going to Jersey to have lunch with my in-laws, stopping on the way home to visit my brother in the hospital. (He sounded much better when I spoke to him yesterday).
And I’ll think of my mother.
I hope your day is wonderful, my friends. Happy Mother’s Day to everyone who is a mom and thanks so much for stopping by today.
