Enjoying the Day

This balmy spring weather has had me out in the yard, playing in the dirt.

I can count on you Elaine to satisfy my need for outdoor beauty; it is such a drab landscape around here. I do love jasmine. I've grown it in a large container but it didn't overwinter well in the garage and I lost it. Love the picture looking into your sewing room (we're usually looking out).

How can you not be happy looking out onto that wonderful kaleidiscope of colour. Our corn has just finished, isn't it great to grow your own.

It's so fun to see your yard coming alive. Everything is still in winter slumber up here!
