Our Fountain and Garden

Hello dear ones, hope all have been well...
we finally got out fountain working. We couldn't find a pump around here so our son had to send for one. It came this week and it is so wonderful to have it working once more. To listen to the sound of the water is so relaxing and here is a pic of it.
This one is a little dark.

A little better picture.

Welcome to my garden...that is what that little plaque reads.

I went to my local thrift store and found a bag full of lavender flowers with berries and grapes, well of course had to buy it. Attached to the love seat.
St. Anthony.
Around Rebecca, haven't really arranged them yet on her, but will do this today.

Hope your week is wonderful and blessed...

Daughter's Orchids

Hi Sweet Friends...
Think this month went even faster than the last one, what is going on?
My daughter Julie, that has the restaurant in Manhattan Beach, went to Italy this past spring for one month. She went with her church group, of course they visited churches in Italy, well one of those churches happens to be St. Anthony church and the priest is a good friend of her priest. He told them he was coming here about a month later, skip forward.....he did come and brought the St. Anthony relic with him, of course she wanted me to see it so she came for me. We heard mass and St. Anthony was right there in the alter. I took a pic of him, of course, and now I am sharing him.
Isn't he beautiful? In my family we are all devoted to him. I was chilled to be near him, especially when I touched him, he was so beautiful. We also received special blessings.

After church we went to her home for a snack and she wanted to show me her orchids. She has many orchids, I just took a few pictures because we had a busy schedule plus go to her restaurant to bring dinner home.

Here are a few of her orchids.

These purple ones are in her lanai.


Many are in her dining room and it looks like Hawaii there.

This one is in sea shells, it's just a baby. As you can tell she likes yellow, my grandson made the table and she bought the tablecloth and plate in Italy.

Till next time, my friends, keep romance and love in your hearts always...

Rick Pictures

Hello Dear Ones...
Just cannot believe how fast the days go by and I had not posted anything. You know I thought when we retire we will have oodles of time and not true, trust me. Well anyway here are a couple of new pictures Rick has been taking.
I bought apples for a recipe so he decided to take a couple of pics of them.

This little wooden horse I bought in a thrift store, we really like him.

Of course this clock I could not resist, also at a thrift.

This black kitten came here and stayed. We named him Spider, I know not very original but it really suits him. I took this pic.

More apples.

Was so fortunate to win this ballerina doll on ebay. I like ballerinas.

Hope next time I don't take so long to post, the times just slipped by somehow.
