Hola Erin, coming to your blog is the best of my day, besides my grandson who came over until tomorrow, he is 18 months.
The joy of your pictures is contagious, I have so much to learn from the happiness I see in your blog, and writing. Enjoy your visit over your daughter and son in law.
Cariños and hugs,
Maria Cecilia

Such a beautiful garden and flowers. Is this where you can't see the garden for the flowers? They do perk you up though. Great job.

Bo is saying...

" Mom? I'm not sure pink is my color, does this come in a muted sea foam perhaps?"

Have a wonderful trip. I know you'll bring us back some lovely photos.

Do you know that today is "sunflower planting "day for those who follow guerrilla gardening. See their blog. love it !!

Zuzu said...

Love Bo! :)

And yes, Happy May Day to you and yours, Erin! Sounds like a wonderful time.

Gerry Snape said...

thankyou for your message, actually its a flickr site. Guerrilla gardening is any one who wants to brighten up a run down part of their local area, unofficially.
http://www.flickr.com/group/sunflowerguerrillagardening/. Maybe it's only in england, but I think it is spreading into Europe at least.

Beautiful pictures. Bo is a cute dog. Did you take a boat to Memphis? :-D The rain is totally unreal and they are saying it won't end till Sunday night late. I just talked with someone who was driving in Milan and they saw a man hanging on for dear life in the rushing water, til help could get to him. Some cars were submerged at a car dealership, etc.
Hope you enjoy your weekend regardless of the weather.
