Beautiful days

It has been beautiful with rain that makes everything green. However the cloudy days and the extra water all around the farmers fields doesn't make them happy.

The farmer knows just what to do, for God has given him understanding. … The Lord of Heaven’s Armies is a wonderful teacher and he gives the farmer great wisdom. – Isaiah 28:26, 29
Crochet pattern:

 Nursery closest to our place
 I bought this Heliotrope with me from the nursery. Love the tiny flowers.
 Isn't this the loveliest print?
 I got this in Africa years ago when we lived there. We were driving when I saw this site that looked like one super long clothes line with drying clothes. It was full of these table clothes in various colors. I wish I could make it stop bunching up in the cloth part. I liked the colors.
 "Don't worry  about anything instead pray about everything, tell God what you need and thank him for all he has done. Phillipians 4:6
 I bought these this year, I like the bluish lavender color.
But we do not want you to be uninformed, brethren, about those who are asleep, so that you will not grieve as do the rest who have no hope. "(1 Thessalonians 4:13, NASB)

 Whau, what crazy eyes. Wonder what are their names. I should get a field guide to birds of this area.
 Saw this on the way home from town where we go for groceries. Lovely Pelicans!

 Great nursery not far from our house.
 Trying to learn and wish there was a bit more patterns out there. I looked in pinterest but they have so many of those complicates ones. It would be nice if there was more for beginners.

 At the nursery.
 Got some pentas for the back yard.
 This was the group that decided to go out and have some fun. I am not a painter not even in my imagination but it was fun to go out with the ladies and participate in one of these art groups. There was 5 of us from our church.

 Here we are having fun!
 My friend Vicky made this lovely tree, I like how it looked when it was all done. So pretty!

Wishing  a lovely Spring for all of us! May you be blessed !

We just got back from Chicago where we were for one week. We have a family member who lives in a suburb of Chicago. Thought I would share a few of the photos I took awhile walking along the river.
Great place for a visit!
"The Gentlemen Statues was created by Ju Ming.  It was installed in 2015. It is made in his signature style, blocky and minimalist, the figures are reduced to the basic form intentionally to embrace the inner spiritual qualities within the human bodies."

A bit dark I know. I lost my good brand new camera a year ago and felt so disgusted that I have not had the inclination to buy another and have been using a Nikon point and shoot.

School concert, our nephew was playing and we really enjoyed watching him. He plays on the Symphonic band and Jazz band.

One of many
He was tired of walking.           Heald Square monument.

It's great to see the reflections of the boats passing on the side of this building.
We took this boat trip before and it's pretty enjoyable!
