First day of June and a positive post!

Head on over to LeeAnna's for more posts about positive things this week!  For this week...

I like that here in eastern Pennsylvania, we've had a true spring.  Yes it's often been chilly and rainy but the spring flowers have lingered longer than usual.  For the last 5 years or so, our normal season has been 2 days of spring and then SUMMER!!!  Then the summer heat would burn off my spring perennials.  This week more flowers are blooming and my roses are really happy with the cooler weather.  I like bouquest of flowers in my house!

The elderberry bush is about 10 feet high this year and full of blooms!

And the poppies are beginning to bloom!

The great weather has it's down side.  I have to pull out some flowers from this bed, if only to have healthier plants:
More lovelies from the garden:

Scout continues to grow.  This week she graduated to the medium sized harness!  Here she is giving it a scratch :)

She loves the garden and has hidey holes all through out!  You never know where she is going to pop up!

Her favorite retreat are the huge hostas.  We only know when she is in there when the leaves are rustling.  Here she is leaving her hidey hole:
I like mornings with Scout.  She just wants to be held and loved and I adore that time.  Last night was a milestone.  She went into her crate and layed down to sleep without any prompting.  She knows her routine now and it seems to be good for her.

I like the movie "Hidden Figures."  My neighbor and I watched it last night and it was simply wonderful.  I can't recommend it enough!

I love estate sales in my neighborhood!  I picked up these goodies at an old house around the corner:

I like the inspiration I find in other bloggers.  I am having a challenging time with a sore shoulder and can't do much hand sewing or even rotary cutting these days.  I may try to do something small and different.  I find LeeAnna's work very interesting and am hoping to get some sewing done before next Thursday.

Have a wonderful week!

I love all the photos of your flowers blooming - they are gorgeous! Looks like Scout enjoys the garden, too! We also really liked Hidden Figures. It was a story I wasn't familiar with, and so fascinating to learn about!

That photo of Scout peeking through the bushes is adorable! She's growing so fast!

I so enjoyed your photos of flowers. Just lovely. I hope you are better soon. I had a torn rotator cuff years ago but avoided surgery with therapy so I still do therapy every morning to keep these old body parts in motion. mary in Az

I never tire of seeing your garden pics - you have such a green thumb, the flowers are all gorgeous!!! And Scout seems to enjoy it too, what a cutie she is. You really scored at the estate sale, love that quilt. I'm sorry to hear you're having trouble with your shoulder - I highly recommend doTerra's Deep Blue Rub, that stuff is amazing, I use it all the time for mine. Even on my sore finger that I just found out has rheumatoid arthritis....sigh.

What a great post with wonderful likes. Your garden is well ahead of mine and I am envious of a bouquet already! I too love estate sales and subscribe online to local ones. It is always wonderful to pick up a few things here and there and give them a good home.

I like your flowers. I enjoy cutting from the garden for bouquets also but find they don't last as long once they are cut. The bouquets make me smile when I see them , so I'll keep cutting,
