Each year around Mother’s Day, ~J~ and I do our garden flower shopping.

This year the front gardens will sport lime-colored sweet potato vines and bright orange and red marigolds will be mixed with the marigold seeds ~J~ saves each season.

We also picked up two pots for the deck.  These are a mix of petunia, calibrachoa and euphorbia.

The pink rose bush is full of lovely blooms.  It took a beating in Saturday’s rain and wind (and even a bit of hail), but seems to be OK today.

The blue jays have built a nest in the dawn redwood tree in the back and I’m looking forward to watching for baby jays.

And, while I was visiting Mom on Mother’s Day

we were entertained by a group of goldfinches at the sock feeder outside her window.  I had to take the photo with my phone, through the window screen, so it’s not the best.  Still, just look at that brilliant yellow.

I hope you enjoyed your weekend and have a nice week ahead.
