Outdoor Wednesday at home and about

Grotto on the campus of Nazareth Motherhouse.

All the buildings are of the French influence.

Newly built walking and bike path for our town.

Right outside my door.
Love sedums.

Yellow day lilies coming on.
Seeing myself looking at myself.

Grand social and finding treasures with Tom

Combining two memes today.
This is a shot of our beautiful ourdoor theater 
My Old Kentucky Home  Amphitheatre.
This is definitely a town treasure.
Every summer for over 50 years the story of Stephen Foster and his Jeannie with The Light Brown Hair is held here.
This is where Foster visited his cousin John Rowan of Bardstown and wrote many of his songs.
This is where he met Jeanie an fell in love with her.


If you watch this highlight you will see the Old Ky.Home in the trees in the background.

 Beautiful bronze statue of Stephen Foster on the grounds of My Old Kentucky Home and the amphitheater. 

They are all on the same property.

This is where our beautiful grand daughter's graduation from Bethlehem High School took place.


Definitely in a pensive mood with all her colors.

9th of our 10 grands have graduated.
One more next year.
So proud of all of them.

Finding Silver Pennies at the end of a month's crocheting.

This arrived in the mail about 1 month ago.
 Yarn to be turned in to a graduation present for our sweet granddaughter graduating from high school Sunday night.

Finished 2 days ago.
Just in time.
I have labels that say

Growing things are almost "In the Pink."

Nothing but rain 7 days in a row.

Good for the flowers and tomatoes but they really do need the sun.

Pink Phlox

Herbs, petunias, heather and tomato plants doing okay but should be further along than this.

 The little sun we have had has helped the tomato plants somewhat.

What touched my soul this week.

 Soulful Life Friday.

The weather has been so disagreeable for over a week I finally got so down I decided to take it out on the canvas  with water colors.
My rendition of 
A Blustery Day
Winnie the Pooh

There have been many things going on in the family this week with so many grandchildren finishing one journey and starting another I had lots to contemplate in my heart of hearts and soul.

I talked about our beautiful granddaughter's
graduation from high school and the afghan I made her, last week.

Her handsome brother will be 21 tomorrow and will be leaving for a month in Peru for study.

He spent last summer traveling Europe and this year he chose Peru to explore.

I am so excited for him and cannot wait til he is back because he can tell the best stories of what he has seen and has done. 

We will not get to see him before he leaves tomorrow but are sending a big hug and Bon Voyage.
I will get to say Happy Birthday in the morning and wish him a safe journey.
Love him with all our heart.

Another grandson will be leaving for armed services training in a few weeks.

This is the hardest to take just because of our situation in the world.
God be with them all.

Good Fences

I would call this little or nothing.

A tornado went through here a few years ago and deposited lots of scraps and trash.
There is still an old item looks like a muffler down near the bottom of the tree still there.

Our sons favorite riding Quarter Horse, Honeymoon,  at his farm.
One of 4 he has. 

 I like this wrought iron around one of the houses in our neighborhood.

Outdoors Wednesday. Severe Storms and some flowers.

My town in one of the many storms last week.

Eerie driving weather.

Finally home

It has rained every day for 6 or 7 days. 
Unseasonably cool.
Worried about our flowers and tomato plants.

Leaving you with a brighter  note from our neighborhood.
