Worth the Wait

| May 23, 2010

A few years ago, I wanted to have more perennial plants, and reduce the amount I spend for annuals in our flower beds. I purchased the two outside plants, and the center one was a gift from my daughters. They have been in three places in the yard, and I think we finally found a […]

Pots

| May 21, 2010

D3 helped me plant planted our patio pots just before Mother’s Day. She has a green thumb, and I can use the help. We have had to move and cover them several times since that day, but I believe the frost danger has passed now. These will be placed in the beds between the roses. […]

Berry Patch

| May 19, 2010

D3 planted a small raspberry patch at the edge of the garden a few years ago. It is a lot of work, but we get quite a few berries from the bushes. They are looking strong this spring. If you strain your eyes, you will see my cabbage and broccoli at the right. It is […]

Basketball Hoop

| May 17, 2010

For many years we had a basketball hoop here in the yard. Our two oldest grandsons lived here, and used it every day. Sometimes if I close my eyes, I can hear the ball banging on the driveway out front. The boys are long gone, one in the Navy and one in the Army. This […]

J.D. Crowe Tonight

| May 14, 2010

We are headed up to Waterford to see J.D. Crowe tonight. I looked around the yard to see if I had anything to take up to our friend, Matt, and this is what I found: Really that picture is after I removed what I needed. Here is what I had after I picked and gave […]

Happenings

| May 12, 2010

Crazy happenings in my cyber world, and I will probably never understand them, so why try? I noticed this morning that my Count down timer on the sidebar had disappeared. Looked at the administration page and could not find it in the plugins. DRAT! So I downloaded, reinstalled and activated it. Funny, all my events […]

Fallen Leaves

| November 5, 2009

Since we have lived down here in southern Michigan, I notice that the leaves fall off the trees pretty late in the year. Up at (our old) home, there had usually been some snow by November, and the leaves were long gone by mid October. Autumn is longer here, but always pleasant. This year has […]

Happy Birthday

| August 24, 2009

Happy birthday to Papa today. We had a nice calm weekend, in contrast to the exciting time we had on his birthday last year. We were both pretty tired yesterday afternoon, after dealing with another batch of tomatoes. We have canned 72 quarts of tomato juice so far this year. We are past the peak […]

Tomatoes, And Other Stuff

| August 21, 2009

The garden has been a real challenge this year, mostly because we just haven’t had the rain. We didn’t get a lot of cucumbers or zucchini, but we have had lettuce and green beans. We also have broccoli and cabbage to eat. I gave up on the beans a while back, a kind of enough […]

Morning Glories

| August 12, 2009

I said I would take yet another photo of my morning glories and I remembered! But the picture does not show how glorious they really are. Here is another: They are all colors, and there are tons of flowers, which come out when it is still dark, and bloom most of the day. They do […]
