"Welcome Little One"

This post is a few hours early because we have been having a lot of storms and power outages and without power for several hours at a time.

For those of you living in the USA, I hope you had a pleasant Memorial Day and were able to pay tribute to loved ones and to those in the military who so bravely defend our freedoms and our country.  We spent a quiet day planting flowers and getting some of my pots planted.  Last year I was so ill that I didn't get anything done in the yard, no flowers planted, and no pots planted, nothing......I really enjoyed the beautiful day and accomplishing something!
