I never really noticed or enjoyed early May until I retired! Now I am outside every waking moment...even writing this post from my front porch.
Last week we were at Mike's house, and I was busy planting flowers-one of my favorite spring activities. I re-purposed an old patio chair that we found a couple of years ago. I removed the broken seat and found a flower pot that fit perfectly. A few geraniums, sweet potato vines and voila!

Some pink petunias also found their way onto the back deck...
If you look closely at the petunias, you will notice a small black tube on the right side. This is the great irrigation system that Mike set up for my flowers. He tied this into the yard irrigation system, and it works great when we are away for weeks at a time!
Mike and I had a great Mother's Day weekend in Brown County, Indiana with my mom, sister Pam and brother-in-law George. We stayed in Bean Blossom at a great little cabin where we spent most of our time relaxing on the porch, cooking great meals and playing horseshoes. We also had a good visit with my sister Judy and brother-in-law Ron who stopped by for several hours on Saturday. The only problem with the weekend is that it went by way too fast!
