Lovely day

Good evening Friends,

What a lovely day today was! Birds were chirping early this morning, it was warmer than it has been, and reached mid 70's. I got a load of laundry washed and hung out to dry, then brought it in and folded and put everything away. (Instead of leaving it all in the basket or in a pile.)

I took some cuttings of brugmansia, scented geranium, tarragon, rosemary and begonias, hoping they will all root for me. You can see everything but the brugs, in the window below.

I was washing dishes earlier this evening and this scene caught my eye, so I grabbed the camera and snapped a picture. During the day, all the cobalt glass shows up with the outside scenery as well. Click on picture for a larger view.

Roses were also fed some rose food, then watered in, and I also hand watered other things.

I did a little bead/embroidery work too. Haven't done much of that this week with all the outdoor projects we've been working on. Besides, I was intimidated about thread color for the next bit of work, but picked out a color this afternoon and I'm happy with it.

Hope you all have a great week, and that your lives are filled with peace, health and love.

Oh my gosh, I just hit the reject button for three comments. How horrible. One was dirt princess, a nice lady from Australia who's blog I just visited earlier, and the other person slips my mind.

I am so sorry ladies.

Indeed you did have glorious day too! We didn't have 70 degrees, but warm enough for tea on the porch.

It was a beautiful weekend, with more to come! Your kitchen windowsill is so pretty and full of garden dreams.

Not to worry Flowerlady ... my rejected comment was simply saying that I hope your cuttings come through for you and that the blue glass is quite lovely! I enjoyed reading your post ... and I shall be back!

First, before I forget, what is the new rose at the top. That color is my favorite...I have Buff Beauty. Yours looks a little paler.

I love the window scene in the scullery (how much more charming that calling it the kitchen sink window like I do). It is framed beautifully with the lace curtains.

Glad you had a wonderful day. I am needing some of those!

Your window scene is so charming.

We finally got some nice weather here too -- the warm sunshine is heavenly!

We'll have to wait for any gardening chores. Winter has finally decided to arrive. Hope your cuttings take root!

Your kitchen window has so much charm and loaded with all kinds of pretties.
Sounds like you had a very enjoyable day. Give us a little warmth and sunshine and we flowers perk right up LOL!

I see someone in the window... with a camera - yikes.

I love the beautiful leaf style pattern plate at the sink.

What a wonderful day you had. There is something so rewarding about getting so much done...especially in the garden :^)

It does sound like you had a marvelous day! We are having a sun shiny day ourselves but alas the temps are only at 36 degrees. So I will dream of being in Florida today and looking at your lovely vases over your sink. :)

Very pretty blue glass bottles. So glad you were able to get in the garden. It's been fairly nice here too. Personally I don't mind the winter when it means I can relax inside but spring will be most welcomed this year.

Hi Flower Lady! First time I have visited you. I saw your blog on Lemon Verbena Lady's on the side. I'm on there also. Just love the flowers on yours. That's my job, the flowers. Isn't it funny how it seems to turn out that way? Women-the flowers. Men-the tilling. Well, not always. Come see me at

You are a busy lady keeping up with three blogs. I have enough trouble managing one. Ilove to garden too, but even here in NC it gets too hot for me once summer comes.
If oyu want to know how to link sometime just email me and I can explain it. It's very easy.
I'm glad to have met you.
