...when the first daylily blooms. It's the same one that bloomed first last year; I don't know its name but it is one that was grown and sold at Wilcox Park.
The RI General Assembly 'abruptly recessed' for the year on Thursday, without bringing our two gun sense bills relating to domestic violence and No Guns in Schools to a vote. However they did manage to vote on such crucial issues as an official state beetle, and allowing bird owners to bring their pet birds to campgrounds. Talk about having your priorities wrong.
Now that I'm on summer vacation, I've been able to focus on D's Cobblestone. Above, just before joining pieces. I'm now well into the yoke, which is the fun and fast(er) part.
D started painting the house last summer, or was it fall, and now is back at it. Inspired by a house near my daughter's, with a huge wrap-around porch jam packed with plants and whimsies, I adapted the look on a small scale on our smaller front porch.
I found the cute little table and chairs at Marshalls. I haven't actually sat out there yet, preferring the secluded deck in back.
