It was a miserable weekend, weather-wise … 40s and cold rain. Is this really May 21? But on the flip-side, my cousin and her daughter visited from Iowa and it was a blast to see them! 

Plus … my 13-year-old had his first date! I know – whaaaat? He and a girl went to the movies along with several other friends and apparently, at least from what I can surmise, it all went pretty well. Eeeek! Not sure I’m ready for all this! ๐Ÿ˜‰ 

After my cousin and her daughter left today, I bundled up in my fleece, a scarf, and winter hat and headed outside to snap a few pics of the gardens. They were wet and a little dreary, but the lighting was awesome.

My poor succulents aren’t quite sure what to make of this May cold spell.

Not a plant but I just thought this was kind of a cool photo of the table on our deck. LOL

My columbine is almost done blooming but still so pretty.

I can never take too many photos of my lilacs. I cut a bunch of blooms to bring in the house and the kitchen smells wonderful.

The Tiger Lily Sumac is starting to come in quite nicely – I love its bright chartreuse leaves.

And now it’s Sunday night, I’m busy with a LuLaRoe sale on Facebook right now, and I will be getting up extra early to get to a meeting in Saint Paul at 7:00 am. Gah! Welcome to the work week!

Have a great start to your week, whatever it entails for you!
