Hi everyone. Happy Sunday.
And here's a journal page for you today.
Some spring flowers, a spot of tea...my latest page for Art Journal Journey.
It's amazing how in 1 week everything has gotten green. Wonderful beautiful green. We had some summer weather, and now the weekend is back to comfortable working weather before the next round of heat arrives.
I think this year might be my year of the garden. Yesterday afternoon I filled some new patio pots with soil. It was more hard work but I can't wait to put my flowers in them.
Pretty soon there will be irises. One of my favorites.
And roses too. Another favorite. OK, I have lots of favorites.
And there are wild johnny-jump-ups in my garden. Some people may think they are weeds because I didn't plant them, but aren't they pretty? And those tiny little purple creeping Charlie flowers.
And here it is ground phlox season too.
Last year I moved this peony plant to this sunny spot. It obviously loves it because you might be able to see all the buds. I counted 15 on Friday, but today I see a few new ones.
The oaks are a bit behind. In fact the pollen from them is horrible right now and driving me crazy.
But this view from my Friday morning walk is pretty.
My husband has been busy cleaning his boat but he took a break and added the flag for Memorial Day weekend.
And I baked some interesting brownies the other day.
They're blonde brownies with chocolate chips and walnuts, but the new ingredient was 2 tablespoons of instant coffee. Adding the coffee really changes the taste. And made them yummy!
I found the recipe in an old cookbook. I've been going through them trying to find some new recipes to try.
I think this one I got the recipe from came out in the 1980's.
Hope everyone is having a great weekend.
