Five on Friday

Cool day here in the sunny south and time to join Amy and the other bloggers at Love Made My Home for Five on Friday.
Our warm spring weather is getting ready to slip back into winter, but that's ok because there's lots of things to do indoors too.  But before we shut the door, let's see what's going on out in the yard.

One:   Our Camellia tree, that I've name Camilla in honor of Miss Fritton of  St. Trinians fame, is so covered in flowers that she hardly has leaves.

Two: Yellow Jasmine is blooming around our pool.  The yellow Jasmine grows wild here in the South and is known as Carolina or Confederate Jasmine.  The pool itself is dead having died in Hurricane Matthew and will be replaced before summer.

Moving back indoors there have been a couple of new things added to the kitchen.


Fourth:  I finished my Godzilla puzzle, but forgot to take a photo.  But he is done in all his glory with all the poor Japanese being tossed about in the waves.  My daughter Tweeted that a building had collapsed in her city, one that was to be demolished and I wondered if Godzilla had had a hand or foot in its destruction.

On Jan. 25 (Wed.), a building in the Nishijin Shopping Arcade collapsed. The building was undergoing planned deconstruction when the collapse took place.

Fifth:  My yarn finally came in for my afghan and I have been crocheting away, no pictures till it gets a little further along.

That's my five, hope you have a great weekend.


  1. What a fabulous post. Flowers, rugs, puzzle yarn and possible GODZILLA footprint.
    Works for me.

  5. How wonderful you have many things to enjoy both indoor and outdoor! Your jasmine looks beautifully grow. It was lucky no one was hurt in Nishjn Arcade. Have a wonderful weekend!

  6. So happy to see flowers blooming for you. I had a huge red camellia in my yard (before I moved) so my January days were filled with blossoms floating in vases in my house. I miss that.,
