Found it!

I found a yarn that is a good match to the one that I ran out of.
That little ball is the all that I had left. The new yarn has less of a blue tinge, but it looks great with the roses don't you think. I was so pleased when I went to the store and came upon it almost right away. I have been crocheting a whole lot of leaves. There are only a few roses left that need their leaves. Then I can concentrate on adding the cream background on them.
My son was home for a day from CA. He flew in to look for an apartment in PA near his new job. Hubby met him at the airport and they drove to PA Tuesday night so that they could look on Wednesday. He visited with both of us on Thursday. The weather was nice enough that we could spend some time playing in the back yard.
One righty, one lefty. No pics of me.
The flower pots on my deck are looking good. 
I bought a variety of different flowers. The two pots below stay in the shade most of the day. 
 Every thing else is mostly in the sun.
 The pots above and below are on stands so I usually plant a trailing flower or vine.
I am looking forward to enjoying the flowers while sitting on my deck once summer vacation comes around. I will be off starting the last week of June. I am so looking forward to it.

Thanks for stopping by!
