Lot to Blog About Today
For anyone in a different time zone,
Happy Mom's Day to you.
Today would be my granny's bday.
This is a pic of her holding my
daughter of 3 months. Amber is now 37.5
Amber was able to know my granny cause
she was six when we lost granny 31 yrs ago
this past Feb.
Happy Bday Granny.
This is my dad.
We lost him 31 yrs ago today, on my
granny's bday. Amber was his first
grandchild and this is her in the pic.
It was a rough yr that yr. I was 4 months pregnant
with my son Cory when we lost granny,
6 months when we lost my ex's granddaddy.
And seven when we lost dad.
Moving on to more happier things.
I feel like this should be me.
haha....with that said let me share
the finished project.
Not the yellow brick road to Oz
but the colorful stepping stone path
to the sunflower shed!
My stones have been here for several
years so some have taken a hit with
the mower so I just left them
as they were and painted them
I love them all but my fave
has to be the all purple.
This is how it looks while I
give my back a break before it
The view from the shed to the steps
of the deck.
And yes, I got the yard mowed
In moving some stones from up
around the front of the shed I
found this broken one, and the other
piece was no where to be found...
but that is just fine it works for
what I wanted anyway.
A place to place my grill and table.
These were on the deck, Lily loved
sitting on the grill to watch birds...
but once I fired it up the fear of her
jumping up on a hot grill bothered me.
So in the yard it went.
And just so you know, Dakota, AKA
THE KING does not earn his keep
in anyway! He suns right next to me
while I paint!
No help at all!
I have maters
(tomatoes) on my
patio size plant. They are suppose to
be the tiny ones.
The blooms on my Purple Cherokee plant
look like they dried up and fell off, maybe
there is a mater coming there soon.
But look at this
Only wished I could tell you what
it is. I planted willy nilly all over the
garden and made NO notes as to what
anything is. I think they are my
red zinnias. But they could be cone flowers....
or this or that!
Do you think people would have
a hard time knowing that
purple is my fave color?
HAHA....does anyone else place
broken plates in the garden?
Just thought it added something.
This hangs in my crepe myrtle
tree in front of my deck, last year Dakota
and I ( Lily had not come to live with us yet)
enjoyed a family of babes that were
born there, this yr no one moved in.
And look what I found peeking out from
under that said tree.
I planted this last yr in a pot and since
I was told they liked to grow
under things I put it in a pot
under the crepe myrtle.
This spring it appears that some maple tree
seedlings dropped in the pot
and started to grow and my plant
decided to wrap all around the
Part of mom's Mothers Day gift
hanging in my tree. I got it over a
week ago so I had to have a place to
put it. She loves the red flowers.
Have my hummingbird feeders hung
also. Only seen a hummer twice
One more shot of the finished project!
Can you tell I like it!!??
One last thing...May in Lupus Awareness
Month so if you know someone with
that give them your love, they deserve it.
Today however is Fibro
Awareness Day so
wear your purple to support
us that have that!
