Robbie and I have been soooo busy working in the yard. It's funny to see Robbie so involved in the yard! Use to be when I did everything except for mowing the grass! Needless to say I'm excited for all the help and input. Well we have gotten alot more accomplished since I've blogged last. We have purchased alot of new plants. I thought I had them uploaded but I guess I need to take more photos of the newest arrivals. We purchased a corkscrew vine, clematis and passion vine, we also purchased a few birds of paradise and a bottle brush bush. The local car dealership in town has lots of bottle brush plants lined up in front of their business and everyone in town has been on the lookout for them! I finally found one!! I'm so excited, photos on the way!!
Jubabe and I have been able to spend alot of time together now that I'm not working! We have sooo much we want to do together now that I'm a woman of leisure!! We have gone plant shopping several times and Saturday we spent the entire day together! It was so great, we both had a blast. First we attended David and Rachel's homewarming/wedding shower. Our baby sister Tina was also there. Then we went to Bryan/College Station shopping. Of course we checked out plants!!:) I purchased an Orchid for Robbie, he has been wanting one and I found them for $12.88! All the others we have looked at cost at least $20.00 to $25.00!! I will have to get a photo of it also. We also shopped for scrapbooking supplies! Jubabe is soooo into scrapbooking. She has been scrapbooking more this year than gardening so she has been pretty quite here lately. She helped me pick out supplies so I can start scrapbooking with her. Kelsey has been wanting to scrapbook with her Aunt Julie too so she found a really cute scrapbook for herself and has ready completed 2 pages!! Well I guess I will post a few photos so I can get back in the yard!!:)
This is a photo of my yellow sedum and airplane plants. They are in my flower garden in my back yard. We are planning to build a gazebo back there and plant tropical flower gardens all around it! It will be a beautiful place to relax!
This is one of my containers on the deck in our backyard. It contains petunias that surround a hosta

I don't plan on going back to work outside my home unless it is absolutely necessary!!It is soooo nice not having to go to work everyday, but believe me I do alot of work at home! LOL! I have been enjoying my time at home with my family and my husband and I have gotten alot accomplished in our yard! We have started 2 new flowerbeds! Here's some pics!

Hello everyone and welcome to my blog!!
This blog will be about my garden (of course!!lol!!)my family,pets and daily happenings in my life!!First off I am jubabe's big sister!! She introduced my to Gardenstew!! Thanks jubabe!!
Now about my family I'm married and I have two kids Tyler(20) and Kelsey (8). I live out in the country by next door to jubabe. We have 2 dogs, Tucker and Toby, a cat named Chubby and 2 birds Billy and Teco.
I work for Texas Department of Criminal Justice (TDCJ).
I am nursing a broken arm right now!! I was reaching for a hanging basket in my flower garden and fell on the rocks around it and broke the big bone in my arm!! Man it hurt so bad!! Jubabe took me to the hospital and they took X-rays and said yep it was broke but they couldn't put a cast on it I'd have to go see my doctor, so Monday morning my doctor will be putting my cast on. All weekend I've just had a splint on it!! Oh and by the way jubabe is having to type this for me!!LOL!!
Anyways here are some photos of my garden:
This is in my front flower garden. The basket on the right with the yellow pansies is the one I was trying to reach when I fell and broke my arm. Jubabe the sweetie she is, came to my house the next day and actually planted the pansies for me. That's want I intended to do not break my arm!!LOL!!
