Garden in March

Bridal Wreath is in bloom!Yellow lady banks
my fave stepping stone

My mom had my camera for an entire month and did not even know it. Yay!! I can post again with photos!!

Everything is looking SPRINGY!!Here are those persistant butter cups that I have been chasing! And a limestone pathway that I started with my free collected stones.

My new hammock is relaxing!

Here is my bright green lettuce.

My vegies are all hoping that we do NOT have a hail storm this year!
Happy Birthday Roby!!!

Spring Break

Since my kids have finished school and are not in spring semester college Spring Break has suddenly lost its meaning. We are not going anywhere! boohoo...
Today I will spring clean and then work in the yard.
I still have not found that camera, I am going to have to buy a replacement. Any suggestions? It needs to be easy and fast with a 10x optical zoom.
I did however uncover the big house folder that we received when we bought our home. It has all the important info in it and I had misplaced it along with Bay's birth certificate and ss card. Wow, my new philosopy is to not keep something "JUST IN CASE" we now live in a "just in time" age and I am going to take advantage of it by trying to simplify my LIFE!

Where is my camera?

I have misplaced my camera and it is frustrating!!! I have lots to take pictures of and golly gee where did I put that thing.....????? The day has been beautiful, still waiting for rain..... The garden is coming alive and many blossoms to enjoy.

On another subject...after many days of planning we have finally made all of our reservations for the UK/France trip. WOW it was challenging to decide. It is going to be an enlightening experience for us! 2 weeks of overseas travel!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I spent 6+ hours today organizing my Aunt's craft room. It was a catch all room, if you know what I mean. It caught all of everything that needed to disappear quickly and then if was not available for use when it was needed. So Baylee and I worked at her home all day well not exactly all day but long enough to get 75% done and then give her some assignments to tackle before we return next week. For me organizing is relaxing. It is where you get immediate satisfaction. Order is restored and everything feels right when it is in its place. I have to say I am addicted to simplicity and organization in the home. I am energized and need to purge a few of my own things but first I will relax with a few cookies and tea!

Where is the rain hiding?

I look outside and sit and wonder....will it ever rain again?
The ground seems so so so dry almost desert like.
A few seedlings are sprouting
but they will soon die off if mother nature doesn't serve up a feast soon.
Windblown is what happened today when I toured the garden.
It was indeed warm and tomorrow will be warmer.
Where is the rain hiding?

Beautiful day

Today is beautiful.
Ben and I worked on cleaning more buttercups out of the healing garden. Ugh...too many buttercups! Roby is making Shish Ka Bobs on the barBQ for dinner YUMMY! I managed to REPLANT the lettuce that I pulled up in a frenzy before the twenty degree weather hit. They look happy except for a few blackened leaves I had to remove. Hopefully it will not get THAT cold again but in Texas you never know. March came in like a lion!!!!!!!!ROAR!!!
