I looked out my living room window this morning and the sky was all red from the sunrise.  Kind of pretty.  This sky was at 4:45 AM this morning.  I don’t usually get up that early.

Yesterday was a very sunny day and the temperatures were in the 80’s.  A friend of mine had to have his heart put back in rhythm at the Veterans Hospital on same day routine.  So he chose me to pick him up as he was not allowed to drive for 24 hours.  So we went over to Sunapee Harbor and enjoyed the harbor views of the lake before taking him home.

They were getting the dinner cruise boat all fixed up for the holiday weekend.

It was a beautiful, sunny day.   I think that the peaceful serenity made my friend’s uncomfortable morning a little better.

On the way back, the dandelion covered fields along the road were so pretty.

I think that water lillies are beautiful.  They are out in full bloom now.  You see a lot of them in little set backs along the Connecticut River.

Lupines are really pretty and they spread all over.

Who doesn’t like pizza?  But the crust is what is full of carbs.  I like portabella mushrooms and those huge version of the portabella make a nice mini pizza that is gluten free.

My Mom used to like Cheese Danish.  The above recipe looks like it might be good.

I like wildflowers.  They make beautiful bouquets to put in a mason jar.

I like window boxes.  The above window box is awesome in my opinion.  The two ivy and then the purple and white is a beautiful combination.  Then the stucco siding of the building along with the curved holder and Greek looking shelf holding it all up.  Then to top it all off the fancy scroll above the window in the stucco.

Hildene Gardens in Manchester is where Robert Todd Lincoln once lived.  The house and gardens are open for tours and I think that is where I first fell in love with the manicured hedges for garden separators idea.  The above is the back yard which is one huge garden.

I like Black Eyed Susans and that purple version has a name that I can’t remember but is pretty, also.
