Saw these on the side of the road today while driving back to the city and just had to pull over and snap a picture.  They made me smile.  Probably the last of the wildflowers for this season but what a fitting end.
There is something about yellow that is just a happy color.

Today was a good day, got the property around the house mowed (have I told you I love my John Deere? LOL), worked in the flower beds some more, turning the soil and pulling grass which helped define the edge, lots of little projects in the house (such as putting those slider things on the feet of the dining room chairs, working on the bar cart, etc).  I stayed from this morning until about 6pm.  We still don't have lamps in the house, something we need to work on, so I have to leave before it gets too dark.  Working on some oil lamps  as an alternative, but need to get the parts for them.  They were lamps that were in my Grandparents' cellar for years.  More on those in a future post.

Anyway, tomorrow will be a fun day, have some friends coming out but we're going early so we can get more stuff done.

Hope you're having a good weekend!


  1. Your picture of wildflowers is John Deere colors, haha. Glad things are progressing!

    1. OMG, never thought about that, too funny!!!

  2. Really wonderful. I am missing the Spring countryside while I am here in the city and I can't wait to find out what has been going on in my garden. I planted some veggies the day before I left and I have no idea what has been happening to them, I hope they are OK - I feel like a parent!
