Happy Father's Day

It is just a beautiful morning here.
I sat outside in the gardens this morning with my
 cup of coffee and enjoyed the sounds of nature.
I took my camera to get some new shots.

The birds were so happy and our resident
mockingbird was practicing her dozen or
so tunes.
Papa Robin was celebrating the day with a 
quick rinse in the fountain.

We really are having a wonderful Spring this year
and the garden is a real reflection of that.
 Cool mornings and nights and warm days, but
not too warm.
I love how beautiful the clematis looks on
the new iron trellis we purchased for it.
May just be a perfect day for 
a ride in my beloved Islander.
Take the tops off and feel the wind.
This is my mode of transportation.
as where my hubby prefers his Harley :)
I wish for you all the joys of this day and
hope you get some time today to  slow down 
and enjoy the things you love.
Hugs and smiles, ~Nan

Hi Nan,
Now that's the way to enjoy a beautiful day! Love yours and hubby's mode of transportation!
Your clematis looks awesome and your yard is gorgeous! Enjoyed seeing pics of your area!
It's finally nice here too... but the mosquitos have started to be pesky now in the evenings!
Have a great week!

Beautiful flowers. Our Hydrangea is about to pop here.
I have always wanted a Jeep to rough around in. Maybe some day.
I hope you had a blast in your Islander.

Hello my dear friend, how are you? It's a long time... we celebrate fathers' day in march, do you know :) Yor garden is really lovely. We had a bad spring, so rainy and cold... I saw the snow for the very last time only few weeks ago...

Big hugs!!!
