Back Home!

We are finally home from our very difficult trip to Alabama.  The purpose of the trip was to shut down my step-mom's apartment as she has been moved to skilled nursing care.  We are not sure she knew who we were.  That plus, I found it very difficult to get rid of her things while she is still alive.  I was not able to do any commenting and I have missed all of you and your blogs.
I do have some stitching to share. I saved all of the berries on the Mary Jane Smith Sampler to stitch on the plane.  I have also decided my summer project for the antique oval frame. I was going through charts and found the "Souvenir's of Summer "  booklet by BBD.  I am stitching Summer Song.  It will go well with any patriotic decorating that I decide to do. 
My last pictures are taken in the garden and on the deck. We came home to very dry conditions.  It did not rain while we were gone.
 I hope all of you that have children had a great Mother's Day.  I spent mine with my DD and had phone calls from my son and DIL as well as my sweet little grandson! All in all it was the perfect day.

 Summer Song using the suggested floss and a scrap of linen that I had, I think it is antique ivory.


 All the berries on Mary Jane finished!!


 My dear kids know what I love-FLOWERS!!! Tulips from son and DIL.

 So many tulips I had to use two containers!

 Beautiful Rhodies from my DD's yard!


 I love these iris. I think the colors are magnificent!


 If you have followed my blog for long, you know I love the Fall and Halloween.  I planted these two containers last Fall.  This is what they look like today.  I hate to pull the flowers out for my summer planting!!!!

Thank you so much for joining me today and have a wonderful week!
