Yesterday was a nice sunny day. My daughter and Andrew brought lunch over. After we ate we went out on the patio for a bit.
He found a marble out there in one of my plant pots. I told him I had a bunch of marbles in vintage mason jars if he wanted them.
Of course he’s never heard of playing marbles in this current day and age. But we watched a YouTube video and he kind of has the concept down.
You can’t see the marbles because I wasn’t far enough away from him and I had my zoom lens on my camera. He seemed pretty excited about them. I imagine he will talk his dad into playing marbles with him.
He was so excited he didn’t take time to wipe his lunch off his mouth. But that’s little boys, isn’t it? Full of fun and too busy to deal with such things.
I played alone with my marbles most of the time when I was a kid. But Andrew can introduce the old fashioned game of marbles to his friends.
Andrew has sure grown a lot. He’s getting so tall. And he’s five years old now. We had a good time together.
Here’s what’s going on out on the patio in the container gardens.
The wild violets came up in the pot that holds the clematis vine. I think they’re cute little flowers.
Look how much Jade has grown since last week. Her leaves have shaped out into their butterfly shape now.
I so love this little tree! This is the second summer for Jade on my patio. In case you’ve forgotten, she is a Ginkgo biloba jade butterfly tree.
From my recliner, this is my view outdoors. I so enjoy sitting and staring out the French doors that are new this year.
Do you see a certain little someone in the above photo?
Yes, Miss Ivy loves to play under the curtains.
And yes, there’s now lots of cat hair on those curtains. Such is life with a kitty in the house. Her eyes match the green in the curtains. Ivy has such pretty eyes.
I didn’t manage to get a photo of Charlie boy today. Maybe next time.
The weather is gorgeous, everything is greening up, and spring is finally here.
