|Me, showing off|
For that matter, except for some dirt-shifting late in the afternoon, I didn't really get any work done, either.
On the house or garden, I mean.
This is because I had the annual recertification training for substitute teaching in the morning, work at the Big Blue Box Store in the late afternoon and evening, and errands in between.
But that doesn't mean I can't be festive here on the houseblog. And frivolous, too.
"Frivolous" is exactly the way to describe one of my errands this afternoon. For I have an Idea of what I want to do with the paving in my new front garden bed, though I don't have the cash to do it and won't have it for the foreseeable future. Nevertheless, being in the neighborhood I stopped at a local stoneyard and checked out the flagstones.
There's that. But I can also treat you to some pretty flower shots from my garden, of what's currently in bloom and blossoms from earlier this spring.

Through open window
Scent of lilac breathes rapture
Soft sultry May night
