Stop for a minute and breathe deep. Would you like a glass of tea?
This is the time of year when the weather is perfect. Not too many bugs yet and the roses are in their glory. The fragrance with a profusion like this just fills your senses. Even if your nose was stuffed up you could enjoy this. I start inhaling a couple feet away!
My Zennias are returning. They always drift to the edges the rains probably wash away tons of seeds.
I usually let some of the heads just stay and dry out on the plants so that the soil is full of seeds all the time. I dry the seed heads too. Zennias have become my all time favorite annual flower. They are gorgeous in bouquets and they are butterfly magnets. Hummingbirds love them and so do the bees. They don't really require any care and they are easy to grow. Heads up all all beginner gardner friends out there; here is one for you to try. There is nothing like success to keep you outside digging in the dirt.
I think he is crazy with spring fever.

no style. I just started planting anything anywhere. Susie had a hand in helping me learn. She began pointing out flowers and vines and telling me their names, she was quite a gardener at one time. She tells me now my first garden plot was a joke and it was. I thought it was beautiful. I know what she means. I see beginner garden patches and wonder why they plant the way they do. It doesn't matter! Just do it! S
Isn't it funny how different we all are? Some women need dinners out or gifts of jewelry, or new shoes or whatever it is, to feel loved. My man can weed for me and I'm over the moon.
Thank you everyone for all the kind comments and prayers. I had a very tough week. The therapy pool didn't even help me. From my reading about RSD most authorities say that pain pills are to be avoided; but for me a couple of days in bed and taking pain pills seems to calm things down. Whatever works I'm enjoying the weather. It's beautiful. I wonder if that cold snap and having a 40 degree weather change threw me a curve ball,
anyway it seems to be better for now.
Trudy my sweet Bluebird lost her Mama on the 29th. She did really great through the whole process. I'm sure your prayers for her and her family will be appreciated. Go by and say hello if you go to her blog.
I took Jamba the poo-pony to PetSmart and had his ears plucked. ($16 for ear cleaning and nail grinding!) The groomer said he had hair growing from his brains. HILARIOUS. I knew they were bad. He is shaking his head. I'm sure they feel irritated. I put some good stuff in there to soothe him. Roman is going to be ONE year old on the 7th! We looked at the dogs in the play area at the store and there was a beautiful black and while Newfy and her puppy. They were the ONLY dogs in that group bigger than Roman. It was the first time in my life that a boxer, a husky, and an old golden retriever looked like medium size dogs
Welcome to the new folks who stopped by. It's been so long since I had new folks, I justa bout don't know how to act! I'll be stopping by your blogs to get acquainted. I can't read and write in the same day. You'd think a person with so much time on their hands could get everything done, not.
Please don't think me rude not to hurry over, and come back again!
I did make bread this week. Yum smacking lips. I'm going to try and practice my preaching and eat healthy. No sugar,
Whoops! I almost forgot!
For the first time in our marriage I pulled an April Fools Joke on my Hunny! I asked him to come outside with me and see the roses in the side yard. After we had admired it I said to him, "Did you hear about the lunar eclipse?" He said no. I said well let's look for it, where is the moon? Now I do know that sometimes you can see the moon during the day, but not yesterday and not in an eclipse. So I had him craning his neck looking at the sky in just about every location of our property. And when I had reeled him in long enough I said it, "April Fools." He just couldn't believe it. He said, " good one wife." We both laughed. The really great part is that I can't even TELL a joke right so it was pretty good.
