Happy Father's Day

I hope Larry's dad isn't getting tired of pillows for Father's Day. This must be the fourth year in a row that I've made one for him. Like guitars, you can never have too many pillows. :>}
We certainly appreciate the fact that our Christmas cactus finally decided to bloom.
But we don't get quite as excited about it as we would in December, when we don't have all these other lovely flowers in bloom. :>}
I hope you have a wonderful weekend. Two more days until the Summer Solstice! It's my favorite day of the year, with daylight from 5:20 a.m. to 9:40 p.m. It really doesn't get better than that!

That pillow is very nice, Diana. I'm sure your father in law will love it. Your flowers are beautiful--even if that one is a little late (or maybe it's early?). HA! :)

LOL, Lucy! I personally don't have any guitars. Between them Larry and David have way too many - I'd guess about 15, but it could be more. If you were to ask them, the answers would vary. It doesn't really count as a guitar if it's for the students' use or if it needs to be repaired or is out on loan to a friend. LOL.

Daisy, I hadn't thought of the Christmas cactus being early. I'm afraid it is underappreciated this time of year.

Great pillow for Summertime! Very nice.
I have many more guitars in my house than humans as well. At least there's always music, eh?
My Christmas cactus has a mind of its own too.

Ladydi, that cactus has a mind of it's own :o)...no matter at least yours bloomed ...I tried for years to have a christmas cactus and failed each time..so I finally gave up.I even tried growing a trumpet vine ..it grew and I didn't know it, until a trumpet fell at my feet..by then I had given up on it...all your flowers are doing nicely for you, and they are lovely...your a woman of secret good traits..Ginny

I am sure the pillow gift will be happily received, you really can never have too many.
Smiling at a Christmas bloom in June.
