Happy Memorial Day....A Cottage Weekend...

****There are only a couple of days left before my Decorated Sugar Cookies GIVEAWAY....Take a look at my post on May 20th.  Visit my Etsy Shop and come back and tell me what your favourite cookies are..  The Draw will be this Wednesday.  Good Luck!!

                      Happy Memorial Day to all my American Friends....
We had a restful weekend at the cottage this weekend but we managed to work around the cottage and I did some planting.

I planted containers on the deck...
Our  new hydrangea was like this last weekend
 but look at it one week later.

The herbs were planted in the wheelbarrow.
This is the 2nd summer for this hydrangea and I was so excited to see how nicely it has grown and it has flowers!

The shop window box is planted....
but I forgot to take pictures of the flower garden around the shop.   The wind chime is once again hung in its usual place by the deck....
This is the new hanging plant by the front door....
and isn't this a lovely display of hanging flowers next door at Bob and Georgias?
Although the weather wasn't as warm as they said it was going to be (except for today) it was great for some people who braved the coolness and the cold waters to jet ski and travel on their flat boat.
Marc made spaghetti....
and bread.....

and it was lovely.  I didn't want to leave this morning.  But I'm back and baking an order of decorated sugar cookies for a baby shower.

I hope you had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend.... Judi xoxo

Hello Judi, Thank you for wishing us a Happy Memorial Day. Your flowers and herbs look beautiful. Georgia has a gorgeous hanging basket. I have admired them but they are so expensive this year. I opted for ferns across my deck instead for 7.50. I love how they look.

I know your lovely cottage and yard are all ready for summer. We too have been working in our garden. We even turned our fountain on. I love summer in the mountains.

Have fun baking your lovely cookies.

Hugs, Jeanne

Hi Judi! Love your pretty planters and your hydrangeas are so pretty. I don't have very good luck with them.
Thank you for the Memorial Day wishes. We've attended three affairs and I'm pooped! :)
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

We had great weather Judi. Today is sunny, windy and beautiful. We had major electric storms yesterday. One of our sweet boys from the village was struck by lightning and died. He was only 18. So so sad : (
LOVE the Marc cooks such yummy meals. You two make a great team.
