Friday Five

My Five today is just from daily life this week!

1. Fresh local strawberries and cherries!  The only thing better than our local, fresh, full of flavor strawberries is our locally grown peaches coming in July! Yum!

2. Fresh Eggs!  Our girls are laying well.  It's such a gift.

3. Sweet petite Iris in the cottage garden.

4. Peonies.  They are blooming fast now and with two rainy days, I've been cutting them and bringing them into the house!

5. My boy.  Rare photo of the elusive teen!  He's a terrific young man. My fellow nightowl, this photo was taken late last night while getting ready for bed!

That's a wrap on the week!  I hope you have a joy-filled weekend!

ps - The newlyweds came over last night.  It was fun to hear about their trip, and talk of the wedding.  I am always delighted to see my children happy!


  1. Kyle is so tall! He's gone way by you. ☺️ Cute picture of the two of you. Glad that you were able to visit with the newlyweds. It must have been fun to hear what they had to say about the wedding and their trip. Where did they go?

  2. Thanks for sharing some of the joys in your life this week, these sweet gifts of God's creation . . . from the strawberries to the eggs to the flowers to the moments with your "babies." All joys, all gifts!!

  3. Lovely photos, Deanna, my, how Kyle has grown, where has time gone.
    I never tire of gathering eggs from our hens, always so thankful.
    Have a blessed weekend.

  4. Oh yes fresh fruit and flowers! Great picture of you and your night owl! Enjoy your day dear friend, HUGS!

  5. Lovely glimpse of your week, Deanna. The strawberries look yummy. Those eggs will make great cakes or omelets. And I love those smiles of you and your son.

    Happy weekend,

My garden is in need of weeding, mulch, and deadheading.  However, there is still beauty to see and I am going to share it with you today. 1...
