Earth Day Recap

Its Saturday evening. It was a damp and raw day here in New Hampshire  I started off my day with a walk and then moved onto some yard chores. 
I think that was a good way to spend  part of Earth Day. 

One of the things we did was unloaded all the yard furniture out of the screen porch and then the hubby took the plastic off of it. When I'm home this upcoming week I am going to give it a good cleaning and then set it up to use on those nice spring days.

Luckily we got the yard work done before it started to drizzle, I spent the afternoon cleaning out some clothes.
Before I took a nap.
Not a bad Saturday.
And here's a page for Hazel's awesome challenge at Art Journal Journey. Magical Mystery Tour  is the theme and I think swimming under the sea is certainly a magical tour. And what you'll come across is surely a mystery. 
Thanks for visiting. I always appreciate it!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Enjoyed seeing all the buds in your garden. Your tree is otherworldly like looking at the Green Man. The screen porch looks like a wonderful space. I bet it will be so welcoming when you get the furniture in. Your yard and deck are so nice. Love your bird bath and are those stone owls? They are so cute! Well after all the work you did, you deserved a nap.

Awesome job on your journal page. I wonder who was more surprised the diver or the octopus? Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Goodness, you have a lot of outdoor spaces to enjoy. I am in awe of the screened porch. What I would give for one.

Beautiful photos of nature and flowers. And a really fun AJJ entry.

Forgot to wish you a rather belated Earth Day.

The photos are gorgeous, I could almost smell the rain, the trees and the flowers. It rained here, too, but today looks to be a bit better. Love your underwater journal page, I would love to do an underwater tour. Have a great Sunday, hugs, Valerie

Lovely photos of the garden and plants changing and showing their flowers. Springtime beauty is the best.
Its a great journal page as well, I wonder who got the biggest shock, the diver or the octopus.
