Now that I have processed and posted my San Juan Island photos, it's time to catch you up with what's happening here at home in the 10 days since we've been back home.
Actually it's hard to remember what I did yesterday, let alone a week ago, but I know that all of the rain we've had during the month of May has made for very lush growth, and the end of May brought a new profusion of blooming.
The wisteria bloomed! That's a native Rhododendron peaking through, our state flower.
It's columbine and poppy time, and the glass flowers came out of the attic and bloomed too.
Glass flowers elsewhere.
There are more, of course, but that will do for this post. These are all pieces we made out of thrift store glass some years ago now.
Tom has kept the lawn mowed, and has planted seeds and seedlings in the raised beds. We have cleaned patio furniture and dispersed the watering can collection around the yard as "yard art".
On Sunday of Memorial Day weekend we joined our "kids" for the day on Whidbey Island.It was cloudy but not rainy. Jill, Jake, and Tom got the replacement weather station installed.
We cooked mac and cheese, watched the Indy 500, watched the Sounders on TV - they won!- went for various lengths of walks, and had a good time together.
Today we are finalizing the preparation for carpet installation, which is supposed to happen tomorrow.
