My beautiful day (or rather days)
I love redbud trees. They just make me smile. Unfortunately they are only red (or really fushia) for a little while and then they turn green just like other trees. But for a time at the end of February until mid-March I just love spotting these beautiful trees.
Today, my DH took me to breakfast and then out for a drive. We saw several really pretty redbud trees while we were out.
We passed by this funky little place called the Style Station. It is an old gas station that sells vintage clothes.
This picture is of the mannequin they have dressed and sitting on the tailgate of an old car. From the highway it looks real.
Here is a picture of a cow that just caught my eye. It looks like he has a mask on his face.
My DH and I picked out some new herbs for my garden and some vegetable seeds. He planted everything for me. I will show pictures later as they grow.
Yesterday I drove to a small town where my EGA was having their annual retreat. My mom's health prevented me from staying overnight, but I did go for the day. I helped some members with their floss tag rings that we are finishing up at the next meeting with the EGA.
I showed them the biscornu's that Mary gave me for examples. It helped for them to see the actual end product. They thought they were very beautiful.
And I ACTUALLY stitched some on my biscornu! Put away the cattle prod Mary!
I will leave you with this picture of the remaining daffodils at the Arboretum. I took this picture on my way to the retreat. They are dying out and so it will be another year before I see them again. So enjoy the bright sunshiny color while you can.
All in all a great weekend!
