Rainy Memorial Day weekend

Just a typical rainy MDW for us in the Evergreen State! Although, just I start to write this, a ray of sunshine is peeking through the gray. I'm sure that will make some campers very happy. Dan took Dayla and Daemyan camping out at the State Park last week and it was beautiful, so they lucked out. We don't normally go anywhere for MDW because Whitey hates traffic and crowds and loves to stay home and bbq. We also have a camp spot on our property that has been a hangout for for kids ever since we moved here 20+ years ago! They still love to hang out there and now they bring their own kids to swing on the rope swing, play up in the tree house cook hot dogs, smores and just basically hang out around the fire!
I wanted to post some more picures today, as my flowers are really coming to life!
Mom and dad gave me a clematis for Mother's Day last year and I found the perftect spot for it! It's right outside my bedroom window closest to the front deck. Loves it there and is blooming like crazy!
Above, are some hydrangeas that Miles gave me a few years back that were from a wedding that he did and he knew they would find a good home with me after the wedding! There were so many that I wasn't sure where I was going to plant them, so Whitey took about 4 of them and planted them up against the garage. 
For some reason thought it was a stupid place to put them, but as you can see, they are LOVING it there. ***insert red faced smilie***I also planted about three of them on the south side of the house that are also thriving, and one on the north side that I will need to move, it is growing, doesn't look happy, so I know where I can put it so that it will thrive! Syl also got a few to add to her beautiful garden.
I cannot resist taking picures of the cats when I'm being click happy! This is Harry Potter and he was just chillin' in the grass.( I took these pictures last weekend and it was beautiful out, unlike this weekend.) Runt was chillin' under the trampoline and so I zoomed in on her too! No one is safe when I'm taking pictures!
Today I caught this guy in my orchard eating my cherry tree. NOT HAPPY but I could not resist getting a picture before I had Dan chase him off!
Yesterday, on my garden tour, I had noticed that the branches looked like they were being broken off
andI suspected that either Whitey was getting a little too close on the riding mower or that this was the work of a pesky deer.  Whitey is off the hook!
Now for the last picture..............Buddy!!!!
He was allowed up on my bed this morning as I was working on my blog since he got a bath last night. I still made him lay on an old towel, but he weaseled his way under the covers anyhow. I'm a sucker, I admit it!!!! Now to hopefully  do a little scrapping or card making today or if I get on the ball, maybe both!


  1. I love your Clematis so much that I went to the nursery and got one. They were on sale. I hope it's as happy in the place where I planted it as your's is! It's beautiful! I have Clematis envy! :)
