From the kitchen window ------

The hibiscus have started blossoming!  There are several plants Star of Bethlehem just outside the window and I really enjoy them.  They are about 6 feet tall.

Lady Baltimore

White Dixiebelle - Blooms are about 8" across.

The white phlox are soo sweet smelling.

Lastly in between other things I have been cutting and sewing flying geese.  I'm attempting to make a quilt from a picture I cut out of QNM years ago.  It was an advertisement for Harriet Hargrave fabrics. Also cut some triangles for a possible Thousand Pyraminds quilt.

Parker - June 30, 2012

We had a picnic after the service on Saturday afternoon.
Parker, 3, my sister Janet's grandson, finds the perfect spot to relax and enjoy his Cheetos.

This looks good!

He looks distressed but he was laughing.

A Room With a View

We spent last week with my sister in Oxford, New York.  We went to attend a celebration of life service to honor and remember my brother in law Jim. 
The morning of the service we woke up at 6AM to this wonderful view! 
One I've seen many times but don't think I really appreciated as much as I did this morning.  It just seemed like Jim was looking over his beloved farm and smiling at the day.

The fields, lawn and pond were all mowed and trimmed.  You can see Julie is already out giving a final trim to the field next door to the house while Matt was trimming the front lawn. 
(you can see I took the pics through the screen)
Oh, to wake up every morning and turn over in bed to this view! 
I just love Debbie's bedroom.

John had a good time up at the pond with Jess.  They caught about 40 small mouth bass. They transferred them to another pond across the road near Matt's house.

The weather was perfect!
The view was awesome and time spent with family and friends was priceless!
Thanks Barb.
