Good Morning World!
Beautiful. Perfect. Cool and sunny.
Barb's on vacation for a couple of weeks making preparations for her new barn. Didn't she show up this morning? I'm spoiled, spoiled, spoiled. Yes Sarah and Gayle, she is going to be a hard act to follow. It looks like a quarter horse mare will be moving in next month and her owner (exactly Barb's age) knows that I have had a lot of great help and intends to do the same.
After chores I started cutting down weeds and buttercups along the fence line. Our neighbor came out to visit Phoebe and Gucci and I took pictures of her flower garden.
Sidney followed me over, and climbed up a trellis, ending up on the roof of a pergola covered with trumpet vine.
It took him quite awhile to figure out how to get back down.
Gar has the vegetable gardens in good shape, but boy do we have a lot of work to do in the flower beds.
Made a quick trip to Wegmans and stopped at Country Max on the way home to buy an apple tree to replace a peach tree that bit the dust.
It was on sale and looked pretty strong (Honey Crisp).
Seeing that it was not too hot, I went for an afternoon bike ride.
Didn't take very many pictures....
Rode for just under an hour.
Ready for a nap, but watched a movie instead..."Fair Game" with Sean Penn. Pretty good.
Out to do evening chores a little before 5 as we were invited to a dinner tonight and I needed time to get ready.
Gary volunteers to unload foodlink trucks for the local food shelf. The dinner was for all the people that help the organization.
It was held at St. Lukes.
A nice buffet, and we did not have to bring a thing. Yum.
The light in the church was just right for showing off the stained glass windows
(some of them are Tiffanys). I snuck away for a few minutes to take some shots.
The back of the church is made of stone.
As we were driving home, we went past the community garden on Park Ave.
There was Pam K. with piles and piles of bags full of mulch...we stopped to give her a hand.
A few years ago I was on an Art & Aesthetics Committee that raised funds to have public art installed around the village. Once the sculpture (by Jennifer Hecker) was in place at this little park, we established a garden area and outlined it with daffodils and hostas (that we split up from several of our gardens). Then Pam (a master gardener) filled in the entire area with plants from her own gardens (across the street from the park). It is incredible! Today, she must have purchased 35 bags of mulch to get just the outside areas covered...her own donation to the community.
Her Mom is our friend Sally. What a great family.
Home by 8:30...looked like rain might be in the forecast.
Our kitty friends were happy to come in the house.
Over and out!
