~~The Last Of The Tulips...and...A Lovely Resident...~~








What a lovely weekend we had at the cottage...

Lots of sunshine and unseasonably warm temps...

Not complaining...

We have all waited for this a long time...

Seems longer every Spring..

Oh gee...

Guess I am getting old! hahaha!






The Tulips are fading...and all kinds of nice fresh new stuff is emerging in my cottage gardens...

Lots of Forget me Nots still around...tons of Solomon Seal...

And the precious Lily of the Valley were new this weekend... 

The Lilac bushes are bursting with fresh blooms...

You can smell it everywhere at the cottage...:o) 

Still warm and humid today here...

Thank goodness for that rain last Thursday...

But...I did water Miss V's garden...๐Ÿ’š

The heater is on the pool...ready for her visit this week...

                                        ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I am making blackened Red Snapper on the BBQ...

Some rice and sauteed veggies alongside... 

Just gonna go outside and enjoy some Greek Salad...

Enjoy your evening...and the rest of your long weekend if applicable!

                        Cheers!  :o)
