sunday pieces

We were up bright and early this morning, ready for the flea market. I spotted some fabric and a 350 Polaroid camera. We have so many, and yet I couldn't resist this one. Very good condition and only $3!

Cats are not good polaroid subjects seeing as they tend to turn suddenly coy around cameras, or move around too much to get the focus right. However, I chanced a shot on Jakey today because I loved how his orange fur looked against the purple door. He was sweet enough to stand still for this moment.

Not our yard, although it could be. I know lots of people tend to view dandelions as the "enemy", but I'm rather fond of them.

Snapdragons!

Purple basil.
These little guys sprung up in our garden.

Our poppy is just about ready to bloom.

Cari enjoys helping out in the garden. She tends to stick to the path while Lola prefers to walk across our lettuce.

I'm trying to take full advantage of Lily of the Valley before the blooms fade away. The little blossoms smell so sweet in the house.

So many plants made their way into the garden today! We got our tomatoes and basil in the ground and got most of the late seeds planted. Almost done with the planting now, and then we will just have to wait and see how everything does.

Yet another strawberry-rhubarb crisp is in the oven to be enjoyed for desert. I think our next project will be cleaning off the porch and setting up a table and some chairs. I'm imagining meals being eaten out there on summer evenings.
