Today I started arranging the deck. This is what I LOVE to do. My containers are finally filling out, the deck has been stained and we brought the furniture out from the basement. I spent the morning positioning plants until I had everything in a position that was pleasing to me. I then pulled out my pillows and my old crazy quilt (which inspired the deck color scheme). I made this brightly-colored calico quilt when my son was a baby. He is now 27 years old. After I got everything done, I sat on the opposite bench and just spent a moment looking at the quilt and remembering him crawling around on it as infant. Such wonderful memories!
Unfortunately, I now have to get ready for work. We have a wedding today and I have to be there from 3 p.m. until about 7:00 p.m. I really would rather just be sitting on the deck enjoying this beautiful day.


  1. Your deck looks charming Zoey! I didn't even know you had a son, so we have something else in common other than gardening and needle crafting.
    It seems a lifetime ago my Sean was a baby. I can't believe he starts college in two months!

  2. The time does go by fast. I also noted that being a mother of just one son was something we had in common when I was reading your blog. (Or at least I think you have just one -- it is easy to get the wrong impression when blog reading.

  3. I only have one 'human' son and one 'furry' boy Cosmo who has his own blog called Cosmo Capers.
