1. Never pay full price for perennials if you don’t have to. You can always find a friend or neighbor who has some to transplant. Case in point, these beautiful irises from a friend from church who put out a desperate plea that she was being taken over by them. Call me in three years… Read More Gardening: Ten Things I have Learned
I absolutely love daylilies! These beautiful flowers bloom for a day; a glorious, perfect blossom for one day. They get one day to be their best! The rest of the year they look like overgrown grass in need of a mower. What an excellent example that we should take every day with an expectation of… Read More Daylilies!
The kids and I worked very hard on a Mother’s Day surprise today. Lots to do in the flower bed. The weeds have invaded! Lots and lots to do. Good thing we are good at getting the whole crew involved. Many hands make light work. (Or, lighter work.) Oh, and weeding is fun! Didn’t you… Read More Nice and sunburned

I’m not sure if it’s the number of this year’s birthday or if it’s just the season… Read More L is for Loved

Our family traditionally celebrates Easter with church service in the morning, a large lunch to mid-afternoon meal, egg cracking, an Easter egg hunt in the afternoon and then a nap. Desserts are served after nap. Egg cracking is something our family has done for… Read More E is for Easter
If you are in Atlanta for a weekend, have a car and a few hours, I highly recommend checking out the Atlanta State Farmer’s Market in Forest Park. I visited there today with my mom and dad – on the guise that Dad wanted to buy Mom some roses for their anniversary, and what ensued… Read More An Afternoon at the Atlanta State Farmer’s Market
This morning’s drive in to work was a challenge. This is what it looked like the majority of the time, only most of that time it was worse. I am not a fan of driving in fog. I’m always nervous of animals and cars jumping out into my path. Then there’s the matter of speed.… Read More Foggy mornings and other stuff
