Memorial Day Weekend

The flag went up and the sun came out for a bit.

We planted in our flower pots on the decks. John insisted on buying the plants and flowers this year. My preference are impatients as they bloom for such a long period and do so well in various conditions.  I know John's favorite color is yellow, but impatients do not come in yellow, so I told him to get something in the purple range. That should go nice with yellow.

He bought some hanging ivy type for the upstairs balcony shadow box, with these little purple flowers, and we chose Coleus for the bench seat.

Here's a video of the pictures I took of our 4 day weekend.

Here's a movie with some short clips of the making of the Rock Star design on the embroidery machine:


  1. WoW! I love the video and all your lovely pictures.

  2. What fun! I loved seeing everything you made - such a busy bee you were. Of course we all know you had a couple of fine helpers! So pretty in the Poconos. And how cool to see the machine at work!

  3. great & great! love the weekend shots & commentary. the dragon is perfect on john's shorts. the g's & davinci are incredibly cute working on their tans! the deck is all decked out with beautiful plants. outstanding movie production.

  4. I just watched for the second time lol I love this place :) The deck area is just fantastic and the G's, DaVinci and John look so happy and relaxed :) That new machine is really something! I love to watch it work. That is a great prize for such an outstanding achievement. I am so proud for you and this gorgeous vacation spot!
