Yesterday was Frozen Custard Day. The weather was magnificent, giving a holiday feel.

I meant to have a quick breakfast at Brothers K and then run errands but my across-the-hall neighbor spotted me and we ended up catching up for an hour after months of not seeing each other. ‘Cause good neighbors meet at the corner cafe every few months, right?

Andy’s had 55 cent cones, which of course I couldn’t resist.

With roses shining brightly and the joyous sun I felt like I was in a fairy tale.

Admirals and painted ladies are still scarce in our neighborhood (compared to last year), but the cabbage whites and sulphurs are flitting about.
