Mop Philosophy Monday

New statue in the garden.
 Who doesn't like the gentle look of St. Francis of Assisi?  I feel like we could use more of his vibes in the world these days.

 I've been spending lots of time in our garden lately.  Some of our plants suffered from the various ice storms we had this past winter and we lost a few things.  We've replaced plants and nurtured others and planted some annuals in the window boxes of the garden shed.
Purple shamrock annuals.
 I like the way Rebecca looks behind the flowering irises:
 How was your Father's Day?  I missed my Dad but we had a lovely chat and just knowing that he is just about fully recovered from his stroke made for a really happy Father's Day.

I bought some new statues for MrBP.  He loves them:
New Lions for the garden.
There's one on the other side too.
 It has taken us three years to finish these stone steps which lead to our kitchen.  See the iron railing?  We finally had that installed last fall and then just had to decide what to place on the stone pillars.  In the end we went for statuary over an urn, an urn would stand empty for most of the year due to our long winters.
Winter seems a distant memory now and the best part of the heat and sunshine in our garden is hanging laundry out to dry, one of my favourite activities.

I'll definitely be doing some of that today, what are you up to?
