Granny Tells You What's Going On


| May 22, 2009

I’ve planted several trees since we moved here almost eighteen years ago, with little success. Last year, I had trees growing among my flowers in the backyard beds. There were a bunch of them, all silver maple trees, like the big one in our side yard. They are junky trees, but they are trees. Last […]

An Ounce of Prevention

| May 15, 2009

You might remember the collapse of my trellis last fall. Papa did a little something this year to prevent that from occurring again. This might be overkill, but it won’t fall down:   The Morning Glories are planted, but they won’t come up for a week or so. Then, the question is if they can […]

Lately, things haven’t be behaving to suit me. It’s funny how little the world cares what I think. Funny. Since the sun is shining and I really have nothing to complain about, I show you a few new photos of the yard. At the end of last week, Papa finished tilling the garden, and put […]

Not so Wordless Wednesday

| April 29, 2009

I checked over the yard and garden Tuesday, after our last heavy rain. Papa and I worked hard to finish replacing the edging on the hollyhock bed, and it looks fine. I am glad to have this job done, it wasn’t an easy one. By Monday night, the garden had started to dry out a […]

Playing Catch-Up

| April 21, 2009

Wow! I’ve been running all over, chasing things, and doing things. No posts for GrannyPam for the past few days, but I hope I’m back for a while now. Let me see where to start. Saturday I worked on my flower beds, hoeing out the on on the south side of the house. I was […]

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

| December 10, 2008

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 […]

Morning Glorious

| December 4, 2008

I know your remember my arbor, I cut down and dug out the roses and planted Morning Glories this year. On July 8, they were started up. You can see the twine I added to give they somewhere to climb. On August 15, the thing was ready to take over the world. We couldn’t walk […]
