I was checking Facebook this morning to see what I missed while I was away this weekend, and I clicked on an advertisement.  I’m not much of an ad clicker, but it was something about a garden tool.  I’m all for gardening this time of year. I actually think this is the best laugh I’ve …

Spring might really be on the way! The Daffodils look pretty good. The bedroom is finished! I put all the stuff back, I know there is too much. It is all photos, old high school year books and other worthwhile things. Here is a view over the head of the bed. The wedding ring quilt …

This morning, I was reading blogs and at least two of the bloggers I read regularly, Tipper, and Becky posted photos of their daffodils.  I’m behind, again!  You might remember last fall, when I did some work on the flower bed on the south side of my house.  I planned to move my daisies to this …

Little Choppers

I was down in the basement, doing laundry the other day, and I saw some little wood choppers hanging on my clothes line. Really. You can see their little axes, and also notice that some assembly is still required. A little investigation, and I found their legs: Papa has been making interesting things for the …

A Little Done, a Good Weekend

Someone sent me an e-cookbook of “taste-alike” recipes.  So, Papa says, “Does if have Steak-n-Shake Chili”.  I look, and it does.  That was Saturday morning, and Saturday night we had it for dinner, with our apple pie.  Papa said it was the same, and he loved it.  I didn’t like it so much, but it …

Morning Glorious

This spring, we dug out some older climbing roses and planted Morning Glories in their place. GD2 was here when I set out the plants. They weren’t doing to well, so I bought some seeds, soaked them, and added them to the ground. On June 11, when I took this picture, the were very small …

More Garden Pics

Here are how my peonies this spring, on May thirtieth. Remember when I was talking about a new flower bed. Well, improved, anyway. It is right there, in front of the peonies. I must have been tired or disgusted, check out where I left the shovel! Here is another view of the bed, from the …
