A peaceful way to start the day:

and to make us all thankful we woke up today and we were breathing, as that is always a good sign, isn't it?

I couldn't  get the embeded code to work, so here is a link:

I took the tub off the rhubarb and discovered this underneath - I can see a rhubarb pie in the near future!!

Busy day again on Tuesday as I had the dentist in the morning and quilting club in the afternoon.

Hoping to have a day in the garden on Wednesday as the weather is supposed to be fine.

Hope you have good Wednesday and it's a lovely day where you live.
