weekend stones in my pocket
the moment I caught sight of the first gloriously blue morning glory to bloom 
the lovely black obelisk for this plant to wind itself around, given to me by a neighbor on the move who had no room to grow things anymore, finding a sunny spot on my 'new' deck
today's smooth stone
the memory of our recent trip to Winnipeg, seeing our friends' car a block away from our hotel, their arms waving out of the windows, and honking their horn in greeting

A scene from the St. Paul farmers market where horses are clopping relays from distant parking lots to the market proper. I never know quite how to feel when I see horses in the city on pavement, in the heat. The market was colorful with rhubarb, radishes, annuals and brown eggs. And red abounds the town.
See more red at Mary's meme, Ruby Tuesday.

The horses may bring us back before the days of diesel fueled trucks bringing the produce to market - every day! I suppose the midwest heat on hot days a long time ago deliveries, maybe even on cobblestone streets. Horses, don't complain, but I hope they get lots of rest and drinks of water in the interim...

Good friends always are happy to meet us, the trip to see them a special thing. The best of friends are happy to see each other!

There's nothing quite so sturdy as redbrick buildings!


Give me red ribbon to tie in my hair,
Not yellow or purple or green;
But burgundy, chestnut, carmine or rose—
These are the colors with sheen!

Give me red ribbon to tie in my hair,
Not saffron or opal or blue;
But fuchsia, magenta, ruby or blush—
Something of sanguinous hue!

Give me red ribbon to tie in my hair,
Not indigo, salmon or grey;
But scarlet, vermilion, dahlia or pink—
Colors like these make my day!
