Happy Memorial Day!

We walked in search of a flag to honor the brave soldiers who make our freedom a reality. Two lakes, no flags. Sheesh. We did find three different pairs of shoes floating in the lake and any number of fashion crimes. My favorite was the undersized bikini with the pack of smokes in the halter strap. Neat. Well, I guess we all celebrate our freedoms in different ways! How did you celebrate the day?

The garden is coming along nicely! The dahlias are in the front garden, with the roses already in bloom.
The nice folks at Sunnyside helped me pick out plants for the planter by the door. Thank goodness for the gift card I had! Love Sunnyside, just can't afford it normally.The anteater planter gets new pots this year. Someday I'll move it to where you can actually see it's art as well as planter!
Two tomato plants this year, Sun Gold and Pink Caspian. Looking forward to harvest already!The rest of the dahlias, finally in the ground and staked.
The hill is being overtaken by the ground cover. Someday it will be a showcase for hosta. Someday...A few hosta to frame the birdbath and the trellis will have moonflowers, runner beans, cypress vine and sweet peas when I get around to planting the seedlings tomorrow.Riley commenting on the amount of gardening done this weekend...Tomorrow, the shrubs get pruned and the vine seedlings get planted. Oh, and a pedicure to treat myself after all my hard work! :-)

Another great show!

The Barenaked Ladies played the Orpheum in Minneapolis last night. I don't think I've missed more than one show they've ever played here. It's such a fun show and it was a great night! I met my friend Mary at Pracna on Main where we enjoyed perfect weather (and drinks) on the outdoor patio. Just a short walk across the bridge to downtown and to the show. The Ladies put on a great show as always. Next time I'll get my ducks in a row sooner and get back down to the front row where it's always better to see them. If they come to your town, you should definitely check them out!

Happy Mother's Day!

I had great plans for a tribute to my wonderful mother. Then I saw my sister's blog and realized I couldn't have done it better. All I can add is that if I can be even half the mother she's been to me, I'll be doing all right.

Happy Mother's Day Mom!

Saturday play date!


Closet is finally done! I've decorated it with the only items I'll buy before I get a referral, a fuzzy pink heart pillow and a smoke/carbon monoxide detector. The pillow is prettier but I'm happy to have both. Now the wait continues. I've seen a few blogs with decorated nurseries, awaiting referral. Just can't bring myself to do it. Something about not counting my chickens. So I will wander into the room, open and close the drawers and wait. And wait.

I had a fun visit from some old friends to celebrate my birthday. First a trip to the park (forgot my camera) then lunch at Edina Grill...
Then back to the house to play for a bit. The boys are getting so big!
