Bracelets, Birds, and Blooms...

Walter came in with a very sad looking bracelet this morning, after golf.

It's all better now. I took a couple of hours and completely redid it.  He wears this one 24/7, so periodically, I have to restring it. I am just glad that I can.  It is easy enough to re-do.
After I finished his, I went back to work on one that I have been doing for myself.  Can you tell that I like this pattern? I use it a lot in different variations.
OK.  Now for the birds.  Two people got back to me with names for my big yellow hummingbird... He is a Hooded Oriole or a Northern(Bullock's) Oriole.  Thanks people for the answer!

I took this picture in passing, just to prove that we do have real Hummers.  Not just the great pretenders.
Last, but not least, I wanted to show you my Mother's Day Present!

Actually, I bought them and then told Walter what he got me for mother's day.

I have never seen any like the white one before.  It looks like someone got crazy with some dark purple paint and blotched the flowers with it. No two flowers are alike!  Very unusual.  The other one is various shade of the violet color. The two plants go well together. 

I got these at Walmart, of all places! And they were under ten dollars a piece.  Thanks Walter for the early Mom's Day present!  Twenty dollars for both! The nice thing about these is that they will last several months.  Not a few days like a regular bouquet.

I am going back now and see what other trouble I can get into before the day is through.

See you tomorrow!

Walter's bracelet is so pretty! No wonder he wears it all of the time! Thanks for the beautiful visuals of the hummingbird and the orchids, too! We had torrential rain and thunderstorms all afternoon!

Moving things around... wow! Exciting. I can't wait to see the castle and if you will change anything.

Wendy, I won't be changing things. I will be up to my elbows in dirt. Cleaning is the name of the game! She
