My hubby is making a new garden in the background with another little fence. It's a work in progress.

The tiny blue flower are scilla sibirica. I know them as windflowers. they're a small bulb.

Today was a perfect weather day! The sun shone brightly in a cloudless sky and the temperature reached about 70ยบ. I worked in the gardens this afternoon and soaked up some sun. The cats provided plenty of help and more cuddles than I needed at the time. They’re good company :)

I wanted to post a few photos I’ve taken lately, BUT Blogger has just ruined my perfect day by refusing to post any photos!! Frustration reigns supreme! I'll post some on Monday if Blogger feels like letting me.....
Anyway, the daffodils are truly magnificent this year.

Update: I had a few spare minutes this morning and miracle of miracles, Blogger cooperated! So I've added a few of the promised photos.

I want to say thank you all so much for the wonderful comments and all those good wishes you left on my last post. You helped to make our 35th anniversary a truly special occasion and I’m very grateful to you all.

It’s hard to explain the connection we feel with our blogger friends, don’t you think? Who would’ve thought that one could feel such affection, affinity, and friendship for people we’ve never met or seen for the most part? It’s easy to understand why we like this blogging so much. There are so many interesting and wonderful people to ‘meet’ out there, and we can visit as often as we want to, or have time for. I find myself wondering about this or that one during the day, thinking about things that are happening in each of their lives.

Today, among other things, I was wondering if ‘
Motherkitty’ in Kentucky is still in a lot of pain after her knee operation last week. I hope and pray her recovery is progressing well, and that she’ll soon be able to get out into her garden again, minus the knee pain!

I wondered too, if
Alice and Richard were able to pat those friendly kangaroos she took a photo of yesterday and sent to me this morning in her lovely email. Thanks Alice….you are so good at feeding my nostalgia :)

My husband and I talk about our ‘virtual’ friends as if you are ‘real’ friends, even though we may never meet any of you face to face. And to me, you ARE very real! I’m thoroughly enjoying getting to know you all! Thanks for popping in to see me so often and for sharing your thoughts with me. I hope you continue to do so for years to come!

I want to say welcome to my new visitors and Thanks for stopping by. I’ll be over to ‘meet’ you after the weekend!

I’ll be working at a craft show this weekend out near Buffalo with my friend, Chris. We’ve been working together for 12 years now, selling pretty scarves that are her own unique design. I’ll tell you more about them in another post. We leave tomorrow morning. It’ll be a long and busy 3 days !

I hope you all have a lovely weekend!

I talk and worry about all my blogging friends with my husband like I have known them forever. You are my second family for sure.

Wish I could go to the craft show with you! I love craft shows. My mom and I used to hit all of them together every year. Hope you have bunches of luck with your scarves. Would love to see a picture of one of her creations.

Take care,

A lovely series of photos, but the one on the bottom of them all is my favorite! A shot well done!

I can see by your photos why you wanted to stay home and work in the garden. It's looking so bright and spring-like, and only a matter of days since the snow, too.

Another instance of confusing common names of plants. We call 'Japanese Anemones' windflowers - and they are 3-4 feet tall.

What lovely photos of a lovely garden. Oh I wish I had a green thumb.

Oh, I consider myself to be "near Buffalo" (even though I'm north around the lake in Canada). We grew up watching the Buffalo channels on TV, so the area around there is familiar from the news and weather broadcasts. I hope your craft show goes well.

I love your mass plantings of daffodils. I really need to put in a lot more this fall to fill out my patchy collection.

your daffodils look lovely, I have just read your 35 yrs post, what a nice story, happy times!

Your daffodiles are so pretty and so is your garden helper...he looks much like our Wild Cat mama.

I know my blog friends better than other friends. Blog friends tend to let you into their lives more easily and openly and by telling us their inner most feelings at times...we don't judge them, we just read and understand. Sometimes we weep with them and most times we laugh and just share experiences.

My husband and I often discuss my blog friends by name and location and sometimes I even call him to come read something which I might think is interesting to him. Thank you for being one of my dear blog friends.

Hi Kerri,
Lovely photos, as usual for you! It looks so springy there. Cleo looks like she wants to help you! Thanks for sharing your beautiful garden!

Sonia said...[Reply]

Beautiful flowers and photos, Kerri. Your garden is so pretty!
About blog friends, I feel the same! I agree also with "Abandoned in Pasadena" and thank you for being one of my dear blog friend, too!
I wish to you a good time on your craft show. And "bon voyage"!!

Ah, another picturesque fence! And those daffs are so cheerful looking.

I too feel part of a blogger family, it's as if you're here (and right now as I'm typing this you and Richard are looking at me from your wedding photo). Abandoned in Pasadena is spot on when she says that you can often be more open with blogger friends. I do hope some of us get to meet up some day.
