This and That

It was a beautiful day on Friday and we did some mowing since the ground was still somewhat wet from rain we had into Thursday that means not as much dust kicked up. After mowing the front we worked on the back and we moved on to weeding and clearing some areas of rock. We didn’t hear the commotion on the road.

We had several law enforcement agencies show up after a car ended up in a ditch on our road.

I brought in the first of the peonies that are blooming. We have a total of 5 bushes of this deep blush variety.

The Columbines are opening up. We have at least three different color varieties.

The Hostas are filling out nicely.

Thankfully these visitors don’t like to eat Columbine.

We enjoyed leftovers for our main meals on Friday and Saturday and then cooked up these shrimp for something different. Delicious with sweet chili sauce.

Sunday was our oldest sister’s 75th birthday so us sisters sent her a bouquet of flowers delivered on Saturday.

We were so pleased that the bouquet was as advertised and shown on the website. Our sister was celebrated well and it was fun to see all the special things she was treated with.

This is a busy week coming up for us here in Colville. Hope you all had a good weekend and your new week goes well.

  1. Happy birthday to your sister. I love the cute deer and your peonies are beautiful.
    I love the columbine too. The shrimp looks delicious!
    Enjoy your day, have a great new week!

  2. Your flowers all look beautiful.
    Happy Birthday to you sister – what a beautiful bouquet.
    Shrimp looks delicious – I LOVE shrimp
    Looks like a pretty straight road to go off in a ditch – on the phone!?

    • The scanner said he was run off the road. It is a very straight road and the beginning of a broken line so it’s legal to pass just as you get to the front of our property. It’s scary watching the cars passing large trucks, etc.

  3. Happy birthday to your sister. You all sent her such beautiful flowers! We have also been doing a lot of yard clean-up and flower planting. It looks like you have wonderful perennials growing on your property. The peonies are gorgeous. Glad the drive of the car off the road wasn’t injured.

  4. Beautiful flowers — lovely Spring. Hate accidents close to home even when you aren’t personally involved it giveis you a weird feeling. We’ve had that happen a couple of times. That was a gorgeous bouquet you sent your ‘big sister’.

  5. That was a lovely bouquet for your sister! Happiest of birthdays to her! It is such a delight as things begin to grow and bloom, isn’t it? Hope your beautiful visitors will munch on something else. (Eek! A car in a ditch is not a nice surprise!)
