My eldest daughter and father arrived on Friday and there was a whirl wind of activity, sight-seeing rolled into a few hours and then an impromptu dinner, another trip to the beach, shrub planting, beach combing, you name it, we managed to shove it all into a few days. Not to mention a secret trip of the Easter Bunny to surprise a little man!
Today we went for an Easter Brunch at my brother/sister-in-law's and her sister and partner were visiting.....I haven't seen her in years, so lots of catching up to do.....no enough time...but now we are closer so maybe we will see each other more often. But there is way too much going on....time for some down time.......but non the less Spring has Sprung in all it's glory, lawns need mowing, painting of relic lawn furniture, driftwood mirrors, sea glass collecting, huge pieces of driftwood dragged up steep beach inclines......thinking and planning, its a good thing I have Jane here keep me under control so that I don't go totally crackers!

|Peonies! I am soooo happy!|
I left behind so many plants that I had collected over the
years, now I will have to start a new collection...
I wonder what color they are?
|I painted this relic of a chair to give it some life and add some color to the |
corner of the garden, sit on it with care
|This mirror I made with driftwood bark|
|This is made with driftwood sticks, glued and nailed|
|Just a few small pieces of driftwood, and some floats|
I sweet-talked to get!
