Our time in the garden this evening was cut short by a few rain drops ~ with the promise of much more to come tonight. But we were able to sit out for a spell . . . surrounded by so many wonderful fragrances - orange blossoms, jasmine, almond spice bush, and my banana shrub. I imagine that's what heaven smells like. 💚
My banana shrub blossoms are working double duty providing us with an amazing aroma . . . and storing food for the birds. 😁 I find peanuts in all kinds of strange places as the birds drop them in flight, from the trees, etc. The dogs love it when they hit the ground - snack time!
I want to share something Philip made for Jr. this weekend:
My boys LOVE fishing and when you combine Philip's love of woodworking . . . well, you get stuff like this! He has so much "scrap" wood in his shop and when he can create something from it, he gets pretty excited. I think that's a pretty cool cardholder. 👍 Of course I may be his biggest fan.
My Mom was also a huge fan of Philip's . . . she loved him dearly (I think more than me sometimes!). But that's okay . . . he's that lovable!
Today is Mom's birthday. This photo was from our last family trip together. She had a ball - she was sassy and spunky . . . she was Mom . . . and she is dearly missed.
May you find a little joy in everyday.
