All in a Day

 I took care of the outside things in the morning-filling bird feeders, watering porch plants
and then I finally filled the Mother's Day pot I received--about time!  
The tall plant is another crinum, the lime green is sedum
 and the blue flower is a dwarf morning glory--
all plants which bear the brutal temperatures right now in Florida!
 In the afternoon, a friend came over with her children for a visit to cool down in the pool!
How delightful it was to talk with this friend I haven't 'seen' in months! 
When the afternoon T-storm rolled in, we got out of the pool 
and had ice cream cones to soften the blow! 
And typical of me after a visit--down time in the recliner with some kitties and knitting!
I am still working on the shawl by Joji and it is entering the final patterning.
What a full day!


  1. The planter looks lovely with the flowers. Crinum is beautiful.

  2. Pool time, ice cream cones, chatting, and knitting - sounds like a perfect day.

  3. Gorgeous arrangement in the planter!
    Ending the day with knitting and cats is just perfect.

  4. What a beautiful arrangement in the planter. You remind me of my Odyssey shawl. I finished the last pattern but I have not bound off. I think I want to make it a little bigger - and I'm usuing a gradient yarn...I want the lighter color to show. I need to dig that out and finish it.

  5. That sounds like s wonderful day. I really treasure the in-person visits I have.
    You are so lucky to have two cats to keep you company when you knit. One of ours only hangs out with my husband!

  6. That is a beautiful planter. I really like the plants you chose for it.
    The day sounds great. It's been so long since I've been around children. Swimming, children, ice cream, knitting and cats. A wonderful day.

  7. What a lovely day it must have been! Visits are always the best.
