iris season

With the first blooms of the early purple irises, I feel like iris season has officially opened. DH took these pictures this afternoon. The medium height, early purple irises came from DH’s family farm. Other than the dwarf irises, these are the first iris blooms in our yard each year. ‘Baby Blessed’ is a dwarf […]

bits from the yard

I’ve had to spend a few days with my leg up, due to some swelling, but this evening I managed to get outside for a little while. It was a beautiful day and I didn’t want to miss it. I checked the veggie garden. The radishes are getting bigger. I broadcast the lettuce seed and […]

a little fun with the grands this morning

Just a quick post with a few pics. ~~Rhonda

menu plan monday ~ april 13, 2009

Monday’s lunch was an eat out affair. Went to Ruby Tuesdays (the oyster bar was closed, how sad!). The twins were dolls. They enjoyed the restaurant and seemed to enjoy watching all the activity around them, as well. We’ve had a great visit with DS#1’s family. Supper was courtesy of DDIL, mother of the cutest […]

park time, play time

The girls love the camera! As soon as I try to get their pictures, they try to get close enough to see the finished product. It’s not like they need a new toy…but Grandma brought them one anyway… We spent some time at the park this afternoon. Even the big girls had fun. ~~Rhonda

mowing tour

When I mow, I usually take my camera with me. Especially in the spring when everything is fresh and new and exciting. I took all but the first of these pictures from my mower yesterday. 🙂 As I left the back door, I stopped to take a picture of the Poet’s daffodils in the little […]

menu plan monday ~ april 6, 2009

Can you believe it? It is snowing this morning. The ground is warm, though, so nothing is sticking. The temp is 36*. It’s just a bizarre picture out the kitchen window…heavy snowflakes falling on redbud trees in full bloom and on flower beds brimming with daffodils. Monday is sometimes a late night for DH, so […]
