Garden Time

We're having such beautiful weather this weekend, it was 67 degrees F today, and it's supposed to reach the 70's by Monday!
  The days are still short, so I took some time this afternoon in the garden when the sun and light was just right.  
I also felt so much better today after having a wisdom tooth out yesterday that I just had to get outside and enjoy the warm sun.  ( my cheek still looks like the "Godfather's" though ) 
I know so many of you are still up to your ears in snow, so I thought you might like to see some sunny and warm photos. 
However,  I must tell you that I have really enjoyed seeing all of the snow photos out there in blogland! 

The following photographs were all taken from my courtyard this afternoon. 












 Fetzer got into this mix somehow, but I think he just wants to show you what else we've been up to this weekend. 
Thank you for all of your lovely comments on my last few posts!  
I'm trying to get around to everyone this weekend to say hi.  
We just got a new BBQ grill, but I'm still sticking to "soft" type food tonight, so hubby is making a "special recipe" of mac n cheese.  Comfort food for the soul!

Purple, in my youger's time, was old person' color. But me, I always like it.
You can see, if you like, a beautifull knitting dress on my blog * les tricots, couture, bricolage de Béatrice De*.
Just clik on the right hand side, on of my *normal* blog.
You have to *dérouler* a little bit. Not so match !

A little hello from Lausanne, Switzerland.

Enjoy your lovely weather. The macro photos are beautiful, they helped on this gray dull day that I'm experiencing here at home. Go Seahawks!!!!

justine said...

beautiful macros with a wonderful feel of spring about them, I am so envious of your warm weather!

Rosie@leavesnbloom said...

Oh what wonderful macros - especially of the little violas. You sure gave me a colour boost today with these - I can't wait until spring till I have these growing in my garden again.

Rosie said...

What a beautiful set of photos! Such great macros and wonderful colours! I wonder how Fetzer got his name... ;-)

Lynda said...

What a lovely treat to see these beautiful photos! My favourite is that rusty fence detail!

lisa said...

I would do almost anything for temperatures that warm right now. 30 degrees would actually be warm compared to what we are getting!!!
Lovely phots Becca, and I love your new design!!

Lorraine said...

Pamela said...

I love the way you captured such vibrant colours on the flowers Becca! That purple is beautiful!
My neighbour is in Vegas right now so I'm glad to hear the weather is so great!
I have to say though my favourite photo is of Fetzer!!

I sure hope you feel better! But getting the tooth out will make life much easier! Your photos bring us the colors of summer! It was gorgeous here today..in the 6os...but the grass is brown in many areas and there aren't many flowers blooming at the park! Hugs! ♥

Catherine@AGardenerinProgress said...

Those pictures sure are warm looking! I love the macros, especially of the Pansy! Hope you feel better soon, the mac and cheese sounds good!

Hen said...

Hi Becca,
Such beautiful photos, I am so envious of your weather! My fave photo has to be the beautiful furry Fetzer, of course.
By the way, the threads you can see in the photo with Vorey are "perle cotton". Yes, it is a bit like embroidery thread but doesn't separate into strands. It comes in different numbers denoting thickness. It's nice for hand quilting too.
