A dear friend guided me on a walking tour of Coronado Island and the iconic Hotel Del Coronado, The Del. Hiking sticks enabled a day of fond memories—I thought of my mom who worked during WWII on the gated part of Coronado, the Naval Base.

CatLove, absolutely darling!

I must share again, sorry. I’m soooooo excited that my long awaited window replacement project finally started yesterday.

My surprise peonies
Old 05-31-2019, 06:43 AM

My surprise peonies. Last summer — our second year in this house — we removed a bunch of large overgrown bushes near our back deck, and I discovered a peony bush that I had never known was there, as it was dwarfed by the others. This year I got to watch it bud and bloom. I left them on the stems as long as I could, but when they were drooping to the ground due to their weight, I snipped some. These were about 6 inches in diameter.

This was the tornado that hit this week in NE Kansas. It was hard for them to tell how big it was because it was surrounded by rain. I heard that the official ruling by the time it hit Linwood was F4. The power of nature is astounding.

Mme Escargot,

I love peonies! Yours are gorgeous. What a nice thing to discover at your new home!

Amiga-Coronado??? Is that where the Navy Seals train? Or am I mistaken?

Love seeing the photos!

That tornado pictures is amazing and terrifying! One hit near my parents' home once when I was still at home. It was very similar. I think it was an F4, and no one really saw it because of all the rain.

Nothing very special about this picture however it is me sitting on my front porch right now at 12:30 on a school day enjoying an iced coffee because I took my personal day :-)

I had a couple appointments this morning and yesterday we had a day-long field trip, so I planned it this way as part of my " recovery"

Oops , forgot to turn my phone sideways for the pic ....

This is the first peony to bloom in my garden

Five years ago I planted these peonies in my yard. Normally, peonies produce flowers in the third year. This is the first time this one bloomed.


Mme Escargot, yours are beautiful. I have some in a similar shade of pink, they just haven't bloomed yet.

Every morning I share the foam from my latte with my pups. Today, we have a house guest with her Aussie. The lab and shiatsu are mine. My dogs expect their "coffee" every day.

This was Boston Commons last weekend - a flag for each Massachusetts resident who gave his/her life in defense of our country. Sadly, this year there was 37,000 flags.

DGD and I have set up a tadpole pond . We had been watching one on our walk since early February and in mid April we brought most of them home due to the evaporating pond. Some tadpoles are now growing legs.

I love all these photos! amiga13, your picture is upside down. I can't see those Navy Seals.

I went to an all-day NA Pow Wow at my nearby university. The campus was built on NA lands. I loved watching the ceremonies, the dancing, the drumming and the chanting, and of course the children. They were precious.
