Favorite Shirt

One of my favorite gifts came from my sister.  She sent this to me for one of my 22nd birthdays a few years ago.   It is stained and is starting to wear in some places.  I suppose one of these days I’ll have to find a replacement.  Or, maybe my sister will send me […]

“Let’s Go to the M&M’s House Next!”

“Let’s Go to the M&M’s House Next!”

Despite the fact that fall means the end of the growing season and that winter is right around the corner, it does have a few ups.  One of those is Halloween.  I love Halloween.  I like dressing up and I love giving out the candy to the kids… seeing their reaction…. looking at their costumes.  […]

An Update on Our Lilac

Last June I wrote a blog about how Dwayne “pruned” our Miss Kim lilac bush.  You can read about the destruction, er, results in the post “Honey, I Shrunk the Lilac”.  Dwayne insists that I do a follow up, so here I go…. Here is what Miss Kim looks like a year after the attack: It […]

Furry Prognosticators…

…although some have feathers and scales…. Nobody believes the meteorologist, but they rely on that fuzzy brown rodent in Pennsylvania to tell them if winter is finally over.  Well, I’m just as excited to find out what Phil says about the upcoming end to (what seems to be) a never-ending winter.  However, he is not the […]

Oh, Those Rascally Rabbits…

Okay, they were actually witches, princesses, vampires and Transformers.  Among many other characters.  Come to think of it, I didn’t see any rabbits.  I saw an elephant, a monkey and a giraffe, but no rabbits.  Hmmm.    Halloween is probably my favorite holiday.  And it is our middle cat’s (Louie’s) birthday.  He turned eight, so […]

Sunflower thief!

Sunflower thief!

We have been planting sunflowers for the last couple of years and the birds love them.  Of course, they may not be the only ones eating them. Aggie and Craig Hundley sent me a couple of pictures showing their thief.  I love the acrobatics!  Some days I wish I could do that.  I’m not sure […]

“I Want Vindication”

This morning before I headed off to an appointment, Dwayne wanted me to “help him with something”. I headed toward the door and he said to grab the camera.  Hmmm.  I followed him to the other side of the deck.  He pointed at the honeysuckle and told me to take a picture of it.  So […]

It’ll Never Grow

As I mentioned in a previous post, our house is built on what used to be a corn field.  That means that there were no trees.  We are not the first people who have lived here, but we are the first to plant any trees.  Now, trees are not cheap…. Unless you have a dad […]

For The Birds

About a year and a half ago we decided that our little shepard’s hook just wasn’t enough. We kept having strong storms whip the bird feeders off the hook and the hook was starting to bend.  Eventually the pole was going to be close enough to the ground that the ground feeding birds would be […]

No Thank You’s

This poppy just opened up this morning.  It came from a lady down the street and around the corner.  That is one of the best things about gardening… gardeners always want to share their plants.  Although, I did find out that it is bad luck to say ‘Thank you’ when someone gives you a plant.  […]
