Its a Violet Saturday Morning

I just love watching my Violets bloom. These Violets are 3 and 4 years old and just love living under the kitchen window. The pink one was given to me by a dear friend here in Oregon that I taught how to weave pine needle baskets and the dark blue one came from a fellow member of Dave's Garden on an exchange for a pine needle basket as did the lighter one too.
They look especially nice on a sunny morning like this morning.

Like I say it is a Violet morning and I am hoping that the sun stays out long enough for me to get outside and do a little more weeding. I did get the front yard mowed yesterday with the mower on high. I then lowered it to mow it a little closer and the dad gum thing wouldn't start so I am going to give it another try today providing the sun cooperates with me and the mower too.

Of course Phoebe is in her usual morning mode of nap time. I think that she sleeps more then she is awake but I think that is what is causing to grow so much.
Well, I got her bowling ball out. I have to watch her though as she likes to pick it up and I am afraid she is going to hurt her teeth.

So I am off to try and make my front yard a little more presentable to the public eye or at least to my own eyes. 
Have a wonderful Saturday and enjoy life as it is.
Once we discover how to appreciate the timeless values in our daily experiences, we can enjoy the best things in life.

Hi Jan, long time no visit:) Your violets are beautiful! Unfortunately I don't have a green thumb nor good dirt. Maybe I shouldn't give up trying though:)
What's Phoebe's best bowling score? LOL.
