coat on the tree limb.It is framed and all .Just beautiful.I also found out this is Silverwolf's coat and hat .That is just so great.I also received some great seeds from Dooley.This was so thoughtful of them.I will get pictures as soon as I get things arranged the way I want.
Thank you again Dooley, DR and Dan

I hate to see Winter come
Category: A little look at my flowers before the frost | Posted: Thu Nov 02, 2006 6:43 pm
I dread seeing all the plants dead .I always hate to see the trees with no leaves and the grass brown everything looking so dreary.
This is my Zennia's with a big beautiful butterfly sitting on one.
Another shot of my Confederate Rose in Bloom
I will surely miss all the butterflys and dragon flys and the big blooms on my sunflowers .I will also miss being able to get down and dirty with the dirt.
I do hate to see the cold creeping in on us. Oh well
I guess I will sure be waiting for the SPRING to come.

A Saturday to remember
Category: Logan is very sick | Posted: Sun Oct 15, 2006 6:29 pm
Yesterday was a day to try to get some things going in my yard .It was a beautiful day a little warm but not to hot.I have had my gold metal headboard up in place for a while now so I started there.I turned the ground with a shovel in front app.4 by 5 I will add more to it later.I removed the grass and got everything ready to plant the ground.I planted the 2 dwarf Lilies of the Niles on each side of the headboard .I planted Black Diamond Tulips ,Ballade(wine and white) tulips, and double Angelique (pink)tulips.Then I started on an old bed that has the cacti in it changing and redoing it I added some Glad Blubs and plan on getting more bulbs to brighten it up some for this spring.I am going to make a new bed for all of my Amaryllis bulbs
I cleaned around my rose bushes and I have to put new bark around them today.I haven't pruned them yet but will have to soon .They are still blooming now.
I have 2 Confederate Roses that has started blooming
these flowers are so pretty and big .My yellow cannas are blooming .The Zinnias are still blooming and so are all of my Angel Trumpets ,the Cigar Plant the Gardinia and the Mexican Petunias.My yard is really alive now even if it is fall with the big rain a few days ago and its sprinkling now off and on.
I will try to get my pictures developed today if it doesn't keep raining as I have to take them to a 1 hour place out of town.
I was so tired I wasn't sure I could crawl out of bed this moring .That shovel wore me out.My back legs and arms are so sore .I plan on getting me a new tiller for next spring. That just made my mind up.

A Walk Down Memory Lane
Category: My life a few years ago | Posted: Sat Sep 16, 2006 6:17 am
This was so funny I couldn't resist.
This picture brought back many many memories.
The older male in this picture was one of the sweetest men I ever knew.He spoiled me terribly.
bad.He was my mothers dad we called Papa.Mother said he was a really a rough dad but you couldn't tell it when his grandchildren came along.He wouldn't let us run in the house he was strict on that for sure.
I remember his walking cane catching us around our foot and boy did we come the a halt :)
I am the smallest one in the picture and jubabes
dad is to the right just behind me.I loved Papa so much and miss him still.
I had to laugh at my suspenders holding my pants up . :)
The automobile behind us kind of dates me just a tad lol I just thought the automobile might interest someone on here.
Frank I hope this pic isn't to large I haven't got the resizing down yet.
