Like Daffodils!

My daughter and I 
made flowers from 
cupcake liners! 

I think they look 
like Daffodils! 

Like Spring Sunshine 
in October! 

Fun! Fun! Fun!

My husband decided we had too many chickens for the space we had so he sold all but four hens. Or so we thought. Turns out, one of them is a rooster! Which is going to be okay I believe, as none of the neighbors seem disturbed by his morning crowing. I think all of the chickens are so pretty, and we are getting one or two eggs each day now. They did scratch their fenced area down to the dirt, so we have decided to experiment with a transportable pen and give them new grassy area to scratch in...hoping the original pen will have time to recuperate and grow new grass. We are supposed to get a nice rain this weekend, which should help toward that goal. I love to look out the kitchen window and see the colorful chickens all pecking around contentedly. Feels like a spot of country to me!

Love These Dirty Lil' Feet!

Well, yes...
these dirty lil' feet belong 
to a lil' grandson I love :-) 

And I love the fact that 
he loves the great outdoors! 

He's learning about all the 
sticks in the yard, the acorns
and crunchy leaves, the flowers, 
and birds high in the trees, the
squirrels scurrying around...

These dirty lil' feet make me
so happy because it reminds 
me he's a happy, healthy boy 
loving to explore the beautiful,
wondrous things God made.

and finished the baby quilt 
for new grandson to come

Joy of Sharing

A great part of the joy of gardening is sharing cuttings and roots and bulbs with others. 
Meeting great folks with the common love of growing things...
yeah, that's one of my favorite things.

Happy Fall Y'all

We're really loving the occasional cooler weather...
and these beautiful blooms that we got from Lowes on clearance!

For The Love Of Clocks

He's been fascinated 
with clocks and lights 
since he was old enough
to point! 

He loved this aisle at 
Hobby Lobby.

is as a butterfly 
which, when pursued, 
is always beyond our grasp, 
but which if you will 
sit down quietly, may 
alight upon you."
