May Flowers and other stuff

Do you have a lot of May flowers around you? Most of my blooms are not open yet. I am waiting for my pretty hydrangeas to put on their glorious show but I must be patient. My Knockout Roses were recently pruned to encourage more blooms so no show there. But entwined in my gardenias ( not blooming yet either) was a cluster of these purple clematis that always make me smile.
I am awful at flower arranging but this is the best I have to offer you. Hope you are having a wonderful day, my blogger friend. And that you will enjoy Mother's Day. Everyone is a mother in some way; to a child, a pet, a friend. So celebrate!

**Frugal Tip of the Day:
Make your own window cleaning solution. It is waaaay better than Windex. And it is "green".
Just take a spray bottle and fill with water about 3/4 of the way. Then add either white vinegar or isopropril alcohol and a squirt of dish washing liquid  and shake. You can used newspaper or a rag instead of costly paper towels. I would love to hear if you have tried it.

Spied this pretty pic on Focus52 w/o my glasses, clicked on it, and it brought me to your blog!

Your "green" (though I abhor that term) window cleaning solution does work; learned the newspaper trick from a British neighbor years ago when I lived in Maryland.

Hello there! I hope you had a nice Mother's Day. I like what you said about everyone is a mother in some way -- how true. :) Love your clematis and your arrangement of it.

We don't have much blooming yet, it still more spring than summer. I'm waiting to cherry tree to blooming.
I have wash my windows just with dish washing liquidand and then newspaper. This year me and next door lady are going to hire a help for washing our windows, we so hate that job:)
Thank you for your very kind words, it always makes me so happy.
