from the yard...

Peach blossoms...
 Last year these vines were overflowing with beautiful grapes and over 1 weekend when we weren't looking, the birds picked them dry. Hopefully that will not let that happen this year.
 Hubby has a new hobby. He is making these gourd birdhouses from last years garden. So pretty.
 We got this bird bath at an auction recently. Our yard is quite a birdie resort, thanks to my husband. They can always find a meal here. Either in the bounty of the garden or in the many feeders that he always has filled for his feathered friends.
 The letttuces are out of greenhouse and in the ground.
We have enjoyed several salads from the greenhouse already with the most tender lettuce.
We have rain here today. Its a good thing, we need it.

squeaky shoes...

My friend Beth and I met downtown the other afternoon and found ourselves at a really nice children's boutique called Bella Boo. 
Where we found these adorable shoes that squeak like rubber ducks when she walks.

I know some people might wonder, why in the world would someone actually pay for shoes that squeak (like my sister-lol!)?
I don't mind the squeak, I think they are adorable!
I'll let you know if they get annoying. lol!

First time with one of these...
 Big sister and friends were having one, so I caved.
All good things must come to an end.
Time to go in...

We went out to park to collect pinecones last evening. We use them in hubby's Christmas wreaths. Have to plan ahead you know...

 We spotted about 25 deer and the girls were thrilled!
There are freshly plowed fields everywhere you go in Lancaster County these days. They are a welcome and beautiful sight.

How about this weather?!

 The forecast said there will be two days in the 80's next week!
