coffee and friends

I am lucky enough to have a lovely, creative neighbor right down the street from me who makes the loveliest art. Here is a tiny example of a card she made me, inviting me over for coffee this morning.


A latte, and a homemade apple cherry scone were waiting form me when I arrived. All on this adorable handmade tea mat. It was a lovely visit, full of ideas for her sweet little girl’s birthday party tomorrow. I have never had the privilege of having a friend that is also a neighbor. She is also my first in real-life friend who likes to sew and craft, so that is an endless topic of conversation.

7 coffee

The garden is sadly neglected, but if you look hard enough (and crop closely), there are little pockets of beauty and evidence of spring everywhere.
7 birdbath

7 flowers

We need to get out and plant the vegetable garden, but it is not going to happen this weekend. I hope you are stopping to find beauty wherever you are.

    Everything tastes better if it looks pretty. I love that mat, very creative. Also, what are your flowers? They are gorgeous. It looks like a wildflower meadow has sprouted up around your bird bath! What are the pink ones? I thought at first glance they were freesias or azaleas, but the foliage is wrong. They are very beautiful in any case.

    The yellow flowers are yarrow and the pink ones are alstroemeria. Both are taking over! I actually love a kind of overcrowed garden, so it’s OK with me.
