|Roger, standing, me, John|
A friend took this picture today of the three of us enjoying our coffee and playing on our devices. John looked at the picture and immediately complained about his shiny scalp. He's getting so brown from being outdoors in his garden and riding the lawn mower around his grounds, keeping things under control. Gene didn't show up this morning, but we managed to have fun without him.
|My front porch potted flowers|
And just now I took a quick shot of my pretty flowers on the front porch. Every year I get new ones, just whatever strikes my fancy, and they give me great pleasure whenever I sit outside with a glass of wine, or when I open the front door on my way somewhere else. Brings a smile to my face every time. You can see we are overcast today, but it's very mild and most pedestrians aren't even bothering with a jacket. It's just a wonderful place to live, if you don't mind a little rain now and then (understatement is on purpose).
It's now my home town, and I'm grateful for it all. :-)ReplyDelete
I LOVE your porch - it's so welcoming. I can see how it makes you smile. Your town sounds wonderful - except for the rain - that I couldn't handle. We are looking at a week of the stuff and I'm not happy about it!ReplyDelete
Love those happy smiles - and your porch. Envy, as always, your rain.ReplyDelete
The rain keeps fires away Jan. Always a plus!ReplyDelete
Everyone looks so happy!
Your porch looks welcoming!ReplyDelete
Great picture of 3 friends! You look happy...ReplyDelete
And to be honest, I never mind rain unless it's accompanied by cold and damp. Summer rain is kind of nice.
Bellingham is very highly rated as a place to lie and to retire. You make the most of a lovely place to live.ReplyDelete
I always chuckle are you north westerners who claim it doesn't rain all that much! Ha!ReplyDelete
I think most of us find the "lovely place to live." We have our own tastes. I like where I live but some (many) may not.ReplyDelete
lovely patio! I love how wide it is, and looks like a really nice view!ReplyDelete
lol on the 'understatement'ReplyDelete
Pretty flowers of course, ...but your smile definitely brightens MY day!!
Great pic with your coffee friends! :)ReplyDelete
I love when you show your porch with all your flowers!
It's a perfect place for you to live, that's for sure. :)
You are having a wonderful time in Bellingham. Such a pretty set of flowers on a nice porch. Cheers!ReplyDelete
Dear DJan, you really have found a community in that coffee house. There is a connection between you and the three others who meet I think on Sunday and other days of the week. I think you have a gift that helps community form. Peace.ReplyDelete
Beautiful! And your porch is very cool, nice and wide, with a terrific view.ReplyDelete
Your petunias and Geraniums look great! How are those trees that were cut back so severely doing? :)ReplyDelete
I see your blog daily, it is crispy to study.ReplyDelete
Your blog is very useful for me & i like so much...
Thanks for sharing the good information!
