The last couple of days around here have been almost letter perfect. Lots of sun and a slight breeze, perfect conditions for working in the yard and walking the dogs. Well folks it's down right chilly here today. I've already changed from Capri's and flip flops to jeans and tennis shoes. (now by this afternoon I may have the Capri's and flip flops back on. We live in Missouri, wait 5 minutes and the weather will change). I think this weather calls for some Cheesy Potato Soup. The ferns are loving the cooler temperatures, they're growing like crazy.

Hi everyone, did you survive the three day weekend? Did you over eat and over play? Ours was really quiet around here. Some of the projects I had up my sleeve went by the wayside. I would get started and boom head off in another direction. Do you ever do that? I do more often than not lately, my mind gets to racing way ahead of itself.
Do you have your porch all dressed up for the long Summer month's ahead? Well this girl is still working on hers. I'm trying to go in a timeless direction, one that might last a few years. OK, so in the past I've kept the cushions way beyond their lifespan, this year I've been a lot more selective. If I don't start making a decision soon all the pillows and cushions will be gone and it will be time to put it all away for Winter, so this week by golly things are going to get finished up.
I've had the iron planter for many years, originally green I sprayed it black a couple of years ago. I love the way the chartreuse green color of the Sweet Potato Vine pops. The gazing ball was a Christmas gift from one of the Grands a few years back, the bright cobalt blue adds another dimension to the arrangement.

I hope you've all had a wonderful fun-filled Memorial Weekend.
A time to reflect,
to remember those that have gone on before us,
to shed a few tears and
be thankful for those serving our country
that we might live in the land of the free.
