Random Five Friday

Happy 2nd day of June! Here are five randoms to begin my favorite month:

1.) It’s been a busy few days in our yard. Last week, I was out tidying up, doing some planting, etc., and this happened. Guess I took the curve a little too fast. (Yes, I tend to “hoard” those little information tags that are included with plants. I need intervention.)

2.) A couple of days later, I opened the curtains to find this situation on our deck. I had just planted those flowers the day before AND sprayed them with Liquid Fence. I’m guessing a squirrel must have thought I’d buried a nut in the bottom of the pot just for him. Wrong.

3.) Wednesday afternoon, storms moved through our area.  We didn’t have any severe weather, thankfully, but the clouds were simply amazing.

4.) Recently, Motor Man and I had dinner at a little local waterfront restaurant.  Pretty nice scenery, I’d say.

5.) This is birthday weekend for me. The celebrations have already begun: lunch Wednesday with a friend, and lunch today with more friends. Sunday, I’ll be celebrating with my two guys: beginning another trip around the sun.

Happy weekend!

  1. Happy Birthday to you my dear friend! Enjoy all of the festivities!

  2. OOPS on the garden cart – I used to keep some of those tags but realized I DID need an intervention – got it from a husband who told me most of the plants I had tags for had died years ago (!) and he was right! Hope you have a multi-day birthday celebration with friends and family to celebrate getting another year YOUNGER (that’s what we’re doing right?). Happy Random Friday!


  3. Happy Birthday Weekend (week?), Dear Friend! Beautiful clouds, and what a storm we got out of that at our house – LOTS more rain on an already wet garden. And those pesky squirrels!

  4. Happy Birthday! Pack in as much fun as you can with people you love, and enjoy birthday food and CAKE!

  5. Another great post! I need intervention too when it comes to BUYING plants!! The squirrel issue is sad..especially if it happened the very next day after you planted. Love the beautiful cloud pic and the egret too:) Hope you have a wonderful birthday weekend, birthday twin!! ♥

  6. As always, I love your random five Friday. Celebrate your birthday every single day this week, my friend! You deserve it. As you probably remember, it’s my birthday week too and there’s no one else I’d rather share the week with than you. Have a lovely birthday!

  7. Happy Birthday! And your randoms are wonderful as always.

    Enjoy your Birthday weekend my friend! ❤

  10. Happy Birthday. 🙂

  11. 1) I tend to hoard the tags too. They come in handy a lot of times even after I’ve planted the plant.
    2) Goodness what a mess. Something sure had themself a big time.
    3) I agree that clouds are amazing. It’s like a highway in the sky.
    4) Gosh that is a gorgeous egret.
    5) Happy Birthday! Celebrate well. Sounds like a weekend of fun!

  12. I keep all the little tags, too, for the info. It’s a gardening thing, and therefore, allowed. No intervention needed! I repotted succulents–and it looked a lot like your newly potted plant the next day. Stinkers! Amazing cloud display! We got the rain, this time! That’s my kind of scenery! What does your June calendar look like? I don’t know where the time goes!

  13. Happy birthday dear . Happy to know what an active girl you are!

  14. Have a nice week end,Happyvbirthday
