Cold Pizza Picnic

Every time I see this pic, I try to adjust my glasses... LOL
Oh well...there weren't alot of poses to choose from, 
since I was usually the one pointing the camera!

Steak, Enchiladas, & Cake...Oh My!

Our son and his girlfriend cooked for much yummy food!
 It was so good to meet her, and to spend a bit of time with them.

He Had A List!

When we visited our grandchildren this week, our grandson 
had a list of things he wanted us to do together! Heart-melt!!!
One of those things was to play "Army" with Pepaw. He spent 
about an hour making decisions about who and what to include 
in the impending battle and meticulously positioning them before 
drafting Pepaw to engage in war. If I could only have recorded their
dialogue...!!! After another hour of strategy and imagination, I think
Pepaw finally bribed him to surrender with the promise of ice cream :-)

The Intrigue Of Gardening

Every year the landscape changes a bit without my help. 
Some things die, some grow and multiply, and some are scattered to new spots.
Some plants look beautiful with no help from me, while others create a massive mess! 
Nevertheless, there are so many things to see and find...and this keeps me intrigued.

It's grown here for 15 years, and I never knew what it was...
It's mostly ignored, and this is the only place it grows on our property! 
It's evidently a beneficial herb! So many plants right under our feet 
that we don't understand and aren't getting the benefit of! 
I'm trying to learn...trying to figure it out.

A New Hat

My hubby got a new hat for yard work... 
I almost didn't recognize him! But I like it!!!  
If you can't be in the country, bring the country to you :-)

I Waited And Waited....

For weeks now I watched these lovelies as the buds grew...
waiting and waiting till finally they burst open 
to reveal their bold colorful blooms! 

Asiatic Lilies... and they are worth the wait :-)

The Thought Still Counts

The tricycle plant stand...a gift from my daughter.
The lovely orange lily...a gift from a neighbor. 

Not new gifts, but definitely still treasured because the thought still counts :-)

Barn Quilts!

A barn quilt is a large piece of wood 

that is painted to look like a quilt block.
