Random Five Friday

Ready for the holiday weekend? First we have to have Random Five Friday!

1.) Once before, I planted cypress vine (also called hummingbird vine) seeds, but didn’t have a lot of luck with them.  This year, however, has been different. I love the delicate foliage and the tiny red, pink and white blooms.

2.) Motor Man and I made a quick trip to the Outer Banks this week.  Once again, we picked a perfect weather day. My hubby is acquiring quite the eye for photos; he suggested that this would be a pretty shot.

3.) We saw 47 horses on this trip, including this one we named “Surfer Boy”.

4.) We also stopped (coming and going) to see Aggie and give her Granola Bar treats.

 5.) Sundae thinks it’s been awhile since I’ve shared a photo of her, so here she is, relaxing on the guest room bed. Yes, that wrinkle behind her is her tunnel, where she burrows while we’re gone.

  1. Wonderful “randoms” this week……..JR is good at finding great “framed” shots of beach beauty. Surfer Boy is certainly a handsome guy. Sammy sends Sundae a hug.


  2. Perfect pics and the perfect end to a week, right? Thanks for sharing your loveliness with us!
