My Violets

Thursday, July 24, 2014

I told my team that I would post a photo of my violets. They do bloom almost all of the time. I do pretty well with them now. Many years ago, my mother-in-law kept giving me violets and I would always take "too good a care" of them and they would be gone. I would either over water or under water. If you have to do one or the other, it is better to under water. They like a lot of bright light, but not bright sunshine. Actually, they take very little care.



They do bloom almost all of the time.

My little Summer Garden 2014

Friday, June 27, 2014

I am posting a picture of my garden for this year. I have green beans, cukes, yellow and green squash, onions, and LOTS of tomatoes. We have had so much rain that the garden has gotten so overgrown. Today, I was tying tomatoes to the outside of the cages because they had grown so much. I also cut a lot of the squash leaves off not knowing if it will mess up the plants. I sure hope not. The leaves were so big and growing into the tomatoes. I think I need more space or less plants. We had some of the yellow/green squash/onions for dinner.





Green beans on the right growing up the fence.


I love working in my garden because it is peaceful and enjoyable. I also get to burn some calories with all of the perspiring I do while hoeing and weeding.

    Beautiful. Can I come visit you? Love it. I want to grow a garden again but need to move from having a pond behind me filled with duck and geese. (they will destroy a garden). You can tell you've taking great care of your garden. Love it.

Enjoy!

Rain and Sunshine Gave us This

Friday, June 20, 2014

Wow, we had a really hard storm for a little while right at dinner time. Then while it was raining, the sun came out. I got up from the table and said, there has got to be a rainbow. I ran out the back door and looked towards where the rainbow should be and "there is was". I came back into the house and got my camera and went to the front of the house. I captured the rainbow along with a shadow of the American flag for a beautiful photo.



God Bless America...we are free because of the BRAVE. Thank you for all who have served in the past and who are serving now.

Reese's says today is my 1st Birthday

Sunday, June 15, 2014




Today is Reese's 1st birthday and it has been a long ride for him. When we got him, he was 8 months old and we were his 6th home. He had infected ears and worms....but we took care of that in short time. We got his shots right away. He has had kennel cough and 2 weeks ago, he ate a rock that was lodged in his intestines and was too large to get rid of. He had major emergency surgery. He has a 5" incision that is healing nicely. He is off of restricted activity now and he sure is a handful. We do love him very much and we KNOW that he has found a permanent home. Labs act like puppies for about 2 years, and we have a year to go, but emoticon. He is such a sweet boy. Join me in wishing him a HAPPY 1st BIRTHDAY.

    Wow! You have all been through a lot already, but labs are puppies for a couple years. Well worth keeping them, because they are great when they are older. Give Reeses a big sloppy slobbery kiss from me and tell him I wish him a very Happy Birthday!

    Love It! Glad to know that you remembered, too. emoticon
We had our flag flying proudly, but I didn't see many more as we drove around running errands. I remember when I was younger almost every porch displayed a flag. It makes me sad to think about it.
