Sunny Saturday

These pretty purple flowers grow on the side of the house that we seldom use before summertime. By the time we open the pool, they are long gone! I was meeting a friend Friday night, so I decided to pick a bunch to give to her. I put them in a simple mason jar and added blue food coloring to the water. The bird picks I made have come in pretty handy, I need to make more! However, not today! We are having a beautiful spring day in Rhode Island and I am typing this on the deck under a beautiful blue sky listening to some music and oh yes, the neighbor's rooster that crows from sunrise to sunset! But, I don't mind!
Thanks for visiting!

What a clever idea to put food coloring in the water.

We had a neighbor that had a rooster, they had to get rid of it because of the zoning laws...it used to bother everyone with it's crowing but not me...I loved it! I grew up on a farm so it was a comfort for me to hear it.

Enjoy that RI weather, we are getting some pretty sunny days here on the West Coast as well!

My Mom puts food coloring in a lot of vases, I can not take credit for this idea!

Adding food colouring to vase water. I never heard of that but now that I have I think its a very good idea and will be "borrowing" it, hope you don't mind. I am envious that you hear a rooster crowing, I would love that!
