Saturday Morning...

it was beautiful start to the day, the temps reached im sure near 70 above on Saturday.
and it was the beginning of the Church Sales.. so i found myself in the early bird line at 6:45am, found a few things and then decided to wait for a garage sale at a nearby Japanese Park. it was peaceful and full of life, with lots of different birds and blooms...

a perfect Saturday morning...

enjoy your day my blog friends!                                    jody
