Signs and Fences with My Sisters…

Sisters wknd 096

This past weekend was our Sisters weekend in Washington State. Two sisters from Washington State and two sisters from California got together for fun and fellowship. Our sister Vera is in the midst of lots of change in her life so we thought it would be good to be together and celebrate being sisters for a weekend.

We started the weekend off with a Raclette meal together on Friday evening. The weather forecast for the weekend was dismal but on Saturday morning we were giddy because the sun was shining and it promised to be a day without rain. We headed north on Interstate 5 to Mount Vernon, Washington to see daffodils in bloom. We were blessed with sunshine all day long. We said thank you to God many times during the day. We had a couple of spontaneous stops before we reached our 1st planned stop in Mount Vernon, Roozengaarde, to muck about in the daffodil fields.

This is the entrance to a beautiful garden at Roozengaarde.  Forsythia acts as a natural fence on this side of the tailored garden at Roozengaarde. Soon this garden will be in full bloom with tulips like this photo below from last year.

Besides these signs and fences here is another teaser shot of the fields of daffodils with a fence in the background.

I’m linking up to signs, signs hosted by Lesley and Good Fences hosted by TexWisGirl.

Today is my recuperating day after all the fun I had with my sisters. Part of recuperating will be getting back on my daily track. Hope your day is going well.

  3. yes… Ellen, brought back memories for me too… I love your focus on fences… I like them – I never think of them keeping things out, but rather keeping things ‘in’ !
