The weather has been beautiful this weekend! While walking through the neighborhood this morning, I came upon these pretty flowers.
It’s hard to resist a flower bed with such stunning color.
Wish my garden looked like this!
Meet my new bunny. While watering yesterday, I knocked over one of my bunnies with the garden hose and an ear fell off. Later in the day, it got so hot in the house (it was in the eighties outdoors) that I had to leave and get to some place cool. So, while browsing in an air conditioned store, this bunny caught my eye.
I especially love his pink ears besides the brown bunny coat.
And here is the poor guy I broke. As you can see, he had already lost a paw. Hopefully, I can glue him all back together and then he can be the no-booboo bunny.
While the booboo bunny has been tending my front garden, it has started to bloom again.
Sometimes it’s hard to know what’s going to bloom again after winter. I think the bunny has the magic touch!
These delicate little flowers started out white but to my pleasant surprise, began to take on shades of purple.
Tiny baby roses are blooming, too.
Everything’s coming up roses!
I mentioned that we’ve been having wonderful summer-like weather. Poor Gracie and Nipper, they were sooooo hot yesterday! They kept laying around in different places trying to keep cool.
Here’s my Miss Gracie under a table, inside the tablecloth. I don’t know if she was that much cooler but it was just one of several spots she tried.
Earlier in the day, I went to a few garage and estate sales. One estate sale was truly overwhelming as there was so much stuff in that house, it was hard to even move around. It was too much to take in, but I did spot this faux fruit and vegetable assortment.
I got the fruit and basket for just $6 so I picked it up for work. We create displays in our lobby to promote upcoming programs and events, so I’m always on the lookout for inexpensive props.
On my way out of that house, I found I had missed another room which turned out to be the sewing room. It was stuffed with fabric, buttons, patterns, pin, seam binding and so much more. I picked up these pretty, sparkly scraps of trim.
There was also this double-faced satin and a few more trims. You can never have too many trims on hand!
So that’s just a bit about my weekend. I did go to the farmer’s market and bought some purple cauliflower which I’m cooking tonight. I’m also making a delicious tomato parmesan dish and some asparagus. I’m sad that asparagus season is officially over – it just went by too fast!
I also took a little photo excursion this morning to shoot some colorful boats that I’ve been spying each day as I drive to work. I’ll post some of those photos later this week. I hope you are having a wonderful weekend!
