Late Father's Day Post

I'm a little late with my Father's Day post. Years ago my dad made me this birdhouse. He use to tinker in his shed and had a huge collection of odds and ends. The house has a neat tin roof and the main section was part of a leg of an old dining room table.

The clematis also remind me of my dad. He had three clematis plants on the side of his garage. This time of the year their blooms would cover the entire side of the garage. Miss him.

While taking the clematis photos, I noticed that my red lilies are blooming.

I just love their bright, happy colors.

What a great memory for keeping him in your heart - something he made and flowers. I know exactly how you feel. I miss my dad too, surprisingly more than my mom. I looked at my dad's photo on my sewing room wall Sunday and wished him a good day. But he's in a great place, I believe all days are good there.
