between irises and daylilies

Bearded iris season is over, though we have a few late blossoms here and there. The Siberian and Louisiana irises are beginning to bloom. We don’t have nearly the number of those that we have of the others. Daylilies are just beginning to send up scapes and buds. There are a few blooming. In a […]

around the garden ~ bloomin’ tuesday

The plants on this side of the house (peony, geranium and hosta) have made a pretty picture all spring. Out of more than twenty redbud trees in our garden, this is the only one with seed pods this pinky red color. All the redbud trees are Eastern Redbuds except one, which is a ‘Forest Pansy’ […]

garden pics…can’t stop sharing garden pics…

Such a beautiful time of year in the garden. My kitty Zak, strolling past the hostas. Ants on the peonies… The flags are blooming now. Hosta ‘Minuteman’ grows in the woods. We’ve found most of the hostas prefer more sun than the woods provides, but this one seems to like it here. Hosta ‘Squash Casserole’ […]

wednesday in the garden

DH and I were able to put in a few hours of yard work yesterday. The weather was wonderful. Mulched a few more flower beds, dug up a butterfly bush that was in a shady spot and moved the two pieces to a sunny location, weeded, and mowed. So nice to be outside! Beside the […]

bloomin’ tuesday

The weather this week is beautiful. It’s a wonderful change from the rain we had last week. There are so many pretty things to see in the yard right now. We were given this iris at a nursery after seeing it growing on their property in a bit of a slough. They didn’t know the […]

menu plan monday ~ may 18, 2009

Yesterday we hosted our church’s annual spring picnic. We look forward to this each spring. We have the best church family. Lots of fun, lots of love, lots of good food! The boys cranked homemade ice cream in a five-gallon freezer. The gorgeous weather (after a week of rain) was appreciated by all! Cool shades […]

happy birthday to you!

Today is DS#2’s 28th birthday. Here he is at Easter in 1984. He was a very cute little boy with a big personality. Not sure why we were having S’mores inside the house, in our good clothes, at Easter time…?? Here he is with his lovely wife during a visit to the Botanical Gardens last […]
