Busy Long Weekend

It was a great weekend full of fun doggy stuff, meeting River's new little brother (and no, we don't have another dog!), training, hiking and tracking.
We also worked on our front flower bed, it was badly needed....
Isn't that scary?
Ahh.....much better.  Its still not complete but its a big improvement.

                              

We also have a nest of baby blackbirds right outside our front door, great entertainment for the cats. I managed to get a picture thru the branches.

I also finally got my sampler quilt to the longarm quilter, really excited to see that finished.  As soon as it comes back I will post it.  We also watched some fireworks with one of our neighbours, sadly no pictures, can't believe I forgot my camera.

Hope everyone had a great long weekend!

Garden

I got outside before any rain fell which was early in the morning and spent some time taking pics of the flowers in my garden.  Amazing I could find them between the weeds, lol.




I pass by this area alot and for many years and finally took a picture of it yesterday on my way to the vets with my old dog that isn't doing well right now.  The reason for me staying close to home and doing some stitching.  No pics of that though.  Once I get a bit more progress that is worthy of a shot I will post it.

Update

I have been working on my stitch-a-long.  I'm a bit ahead which is a good thing with the nice weather approaching.
Starting to work in the garden as well, now that we have some sun!

I have been busy with my new Golden puppy so don't know how much crafty things I will be doing over the next few months as he will keep me very busy!


It was also Mother's day and we went out for a nice lunch which included my Aunt from Holland.
