The Weekend and a Honeysuckle filled Breeze.

Memorial Day holiday weekend has been and gone and we had a nice time.  Did you?  I hope so.

Today it is humid and steamy and the whole outside smells of Honeysuckle flowers, I just want to stand at my back door and breath in the warm scents as they drift on by.

I spent some time stamping out flowers with my fancy new cutty outy thing which makes lovely flower shapes.  I ended up with a nice pile and I am very happy with my colour choice.  In fact I would like my living room these colours.

These flowers are heading for my business cards which I need to fancy up for the upcoming Alt Summit in New York City.

20130527-164715.jpgI snapped some photos of these gorgeous thistles as we walked by the local Metro Link station.  I took a load of photos but the wind foiled my plan and most ended up out of focus.  Thankfully I got a few to play about with and here are a couple.
On Sunday we visited some friends who happen to have a lake at the end of their garden, so Bodhi and Max got to do a spot of fishing.  They caught a string of weed between them, but a success was declared,  and it was a lovely evening following a storm which only served to make the air even more humid!

20130527-200456.jpg Monday, we took a trip to Laumier Sculpture Park here in St Louis and had an artful walk through the park and woodlands.  It was a warm sunny day which ended with a cooling thunderstorm which watered the garden for me!





It was nice to visit the park and see some sculptures I hadn’t seen in previous visits, this young lady in the tree was very well hidden.

What did you do this weekend, was it a holiday on Monday with you?  Any crazy weather?  I must admit, I do like the bonkers weather we get here, as long as it leaves the roof on the house….
