A nice Sunday

Have you seen the movie Woman in Gold?  It's a 2015 movie about the painting by Gustav Klimt, which was stolen by the Nazis at the beginning of World War II.  Helen Mirren plays the woman whose aunt had been the model for the painting and from whose family the painting had been taken.  This is the story of her trying to recover the painting from Austria.  It's a fascinating story and quite well acted.  Of course, with Helen Mirren, how could it be otherwise!

Margaret came over this afternoon.  She had planted some impatiens in boxes to sit on the deck railing, and brought some other hanging baskets and hangers.  The deck is looking really nice.  And we found a hose to use for watering them. Now if I can just keep them alive through the summer.  A dinner at La Altena was a nice end to the afternoon.  I'm looking forward to Jean and her friend coming tomorrow.
