Perfect weekend for outdoor activities

This weekend the weather was in the seventies, sunny and no humidity, perfect for the outdoors.
On Saturday I helped my wife with a yard-sale she had planned.

In between sales I did some gardening in the front yard. I took out this Variegated Arboricola shrub that had out grown the space where it was. This shrub is not one of my favorite plants, I don’t know what I will replace it with but it will be something with flowers.

I found these two characters in my neighbor’s trash bin and saved them, now they are my new garden waiters. What are they? Kangaroos or Rats. I need to find flowerpots that are not very heavy.

Today I spent the day at the South Miami Art festival. Checking out the art and eating good food and enjoying the good weather outside.

i can see by your photos you had the same crystal clear blue skies this weekend that we did here on the gulf coast. this is the kind of weather we wait for isn't it?

perfect day for an art festival- i love to saunter around at those --in beautiful weather of course.

Sounds like you had a busy weekend Rusty. Love those 2 new characters although I haven't got a clue as to what kind of beastie they are supposed to be.

What a great weekend - garage sale, art show, and gardening! I can use that little stepstool ladder you have for sale there. Surely your new garden characters are kangaroos, who would make cute rats?
