Wishing you all a wonderful weekend and a very happy Mother's Day xoxo.


enjoy your weekend too...watching the little green babies grow...xo

Your little garden is so pretty ♥
Have a wonderful weekend xo

The picture of the bird and nest is just stunning. You must be an ninja to get so close without causing him to fly away.

What a nest that little bird has built!
Have a good weekend too. I'm hoping to page through your embroidery book this weekend and pick out my next project.

i love seeing your garden, I've started mine too :)

Thinking of you too this weekend. It can be such a hard day for so many reasons. Hope you will be loved up by everyone around you!

What wonderful images. Keeping you in my thoughts this weekend. I so understand.

Happy weekend to you dear Alicia.
Sending you smiles and hugs. xoC

Thank you for the beautiful pictures and your beautiful words.

Same to you! Enjoy! Your plants all look so good.

Love to you, lady.

I know this weekend must be hard for you and Andy.
I hope it brings you joy, in spite of everything.


We have an (obvious) robin's nest outside our back door above the porch light, but I've never seen one like yours -- I've never known to look! I agree, you must be a ninja to have caught the bird outside the nest like that. You possess a calm, don't you... very cat-like you are, I bet.
Wishing you a lovely (warm!!) weekend. Hugs to you.

More lovely pictures! I so miss lilacs! In Chicago, they grew like weeds everywhere...gardens and alley ways as well. Have a beautiful weekend!

I can't find the words . . . for you . . . except, I care about you on this Mother's Day . . .

Thinking of you and your family.

Bushtit! I loved watching the pair outside my apartment last year. ( )

Is that an oriole's nest? I think they make those hanging types of nests... Your cabbage plant is getting bigger. :)
Thoughts are out your way this weekend.
