Silence IS Golden

It was quite nice to have the afternoon to myself today. My grandson was here again last night but mom picked him up at 12:30PM so the afternoon was mine. In the middle of washing dishes and attempting to clean off the kitchen counter I took a break and relaxed on the chaise in the sun for an hour. This is the first time I've used it this year. It was breezy but the sun was warm and for 1/2 hour I just laid back and closed my eyes. I could have actually fallen asleep......maybe next time!

When granddaughter A was here I told the kids to stick little flags in my's one that says "Happy Independence Day".
 I just wandered around and snapped a few photos of my flowers. They are not in full bloom yet.

The hummingbirds were after the fuschia when it was on our deck.

 This geranium winters in the house....looks nice, eh?
 I need more of these perennials! .....if I only knew what they are. I liked them when my mom had them and now I know why she liked them. PERENNIALS

Wishing everyone a happy and safe 4th! No plans here and I am NOT complaining!


  1. Happy 4th to you! No plans here either.
    I like the idea of just relaxing! Maybe tomorrow I'll take a few minutes for myself.

  2. Such pretty flowers...:) As fun as it must have been having your grands for a few days, I'm sure you're enjoying your peace and quiet now! Have a blessed and happy 4th!

    Blessings, Vicky
