Beautiful Day In the Neighborhood

I spent a good part of the day working on the bookmobile.  It was a beautiful sunny day and many people came to visit us and found fun things to check out.  I always enjoy busy bookmobile stops.

When I got home I took a little tour of the yard to see what was blooming.  Here are a few of the pretties I found.

The pretty below was made by me.

This block is the second block completed for my Flower Garden Quilt, ten more to go.  The description of this quilt says, take a moment to stop and smell the roses in our beautiful Flower Garden Quilt.  I am going to try to take that literally and keep checking on our gardens and stop and smell whatever is blooming.

We have a new addition to our back yard.  It is a tree person.  He was a birthday gift from my sister Michele, I think he's great.   I will wait to see if the grandchildren notice him when they come to visit tomorrow.

My sweet husband just brought home some yummy teriyaki chicken from our favorite place in town, gotta go now.

Happy Saturday!


  1. Oh how fun! Great tree person. Your grands will love him

  2. I adore the tree person. A clever idea! What a lovely garden you have and the quilt block is so pretty.

  3. It's so nice to see God's palette everywhere!
    Have a lovely weekend Sherry,
