I've been Watching:
Call the Midwife & Mr Selfridge on Masterpiece Classic on PBS
Such great shows!
OMG the season finales were so heartwrenching! Tears for both!
But now they are over with and PBS will be airing Masterpiece Mystery! which I also LOVE to watch.
Poirot, Endeavour, Silk, Law & Order UK
and some new mysteries that I've never seen called The Escape Artist with David Tennant, aka The10th Dr! That should be interesting and also a show called Breathless that looks retro, sultry like Madmen.
Who doesn't Love a mystery?
I've Been Reading:
I've been drinking:
collecting my inspirational Oprah quotes & trying to earn some Bonus Stars during the Summer Star Dash!
New Nail Polish:
Cute new scented line from Revlon in these adorable bottles. Have you tried them? I bought Wintermint for the obvious reason, I ♥ mint green and this one is a very Lovely soft green with blue sparkles, very mermaid and summery + it has a slight mint scent for 1 day. I feel Like I need to collect some more of these!
Blooming in My Garden:
This interesting plant has many funny names but I've always known it as Jack in the Pulpit. I have a nice clump of it nestled in with the hellebores next to the pond. I first saw this unique looking plant when I was child we found it growing in the woods way way way behind our house when we lived in the country. Sometimes in the summer we would hike down the dried up creek bed, be gone for hours & hours exploring the fields and woodlands. Do you remember that, dear sister?
This is Memorial Day weekend, the official kick off to summer and all the flag flying patriotic holidays coming up. I found my American flag and hoisted it up so it can wave from the veranda again. I think it looks nice while honoring all the soldiers that fought and died serving our country. Give a jaunty salute!
I'm looking forward to lots of summer parties, graduations, BBQ, get togethers, vacations and family visits.
I Love spending time on the veranda,
sipping a cold drink, working on my blog...
or reading & waiting to catch a breeze. If you're lucky it will be sweetly scented by honeysuckle or magnolia blossom which I think has a slight lemony scent.
In the evening, it's a good spot to watch for fireflies or...
just sitting watching the world go by.
How are you spending your Memorial Day Weekend?
Thanks for chatting,
