Vibrant...Vivacious...Violets♥️




My small backyard here at home...

Has become...

The Violet Patch!!

How sweet are these little guys....love them!

                                 ````````````````````````

Hope you are having a great day...

Sunny and warm here...

Boyfriend and I did a few errands this morning...

Picked up some lovely stain for our sunporch at the cottage...

Perhaps we will get that done this weekend...

Did a Costco run...everyone was buying planters...

None for me...haven't even thought about annuals yet...

Although I may take a trip to ITTENS out at the cottage...

A lovely little nursery♥️

I have Pea Soup bubbling on the stove...which will come in handy at the cottage...

Rotisserie Chicken...Fries...Swiss Chalet Sauce and salad for dinner...

      We might be heading for the cottage tomorrow...YAY!!!

                      Enjoy your evening...

                           Cheers!  :o)

    Weather dreadful here just when we want to get into the garden ~ hope it improves when Peter comes tomorrow.

  6. Great minds think alike, brought a rotisserie chicken to my daughter's today, nice to see my oldest grandkids, it's been a few weeks. One has been home with the Durham H.S. strike, almost 3 weeks, yikes. Have a lovely extended weekend at the cottage and don't forget your camera, ha, ha. :)

  10. My little violets are all done by now... I do so love them, too. They sing spring with summer on the way! I have done no planters or anything yet... we are looking at a big overhaul of this overgrown, ill-planned yard (inside last year... outside this year). {sigh} I'll be glad when this place finally feels like home. Hoping you have a wonderful weekend at the cottage!! blessings ~ tanna

    Rotisserie chicken....the Costco shopping day dinner. Yum. I'll be picking one up tomorrow while I'm at our Sams Club. Maybe two and freeze one like you suggested!
