Garden Seat

This is the garden seat that my son Spencer gave me for Mothers day. He is quite the shopper! He is always finding me unique things. I use this every time I weed the flower beds. I was sitting on it on the sidewalk weeding the front flower bed one day and fell off of it. You are supposed to have a skid mat under it when on a slick surface. He didn't buy me the mat, hummm!

Alice Oakleaf Hydrangea

The hydrangea is almost in full bloom. I need to cut it back, but I hate to,because it only blooms on last years wood. I bought this hydrangea because Alice was my Mother' name. It is a busy day here today. Bill is mowing, Steve is cleaning his truck and I am working in the flower beds. I would be working in my garden, but I used some of Steve's weed killer around the outside edges and everything in the garden is dying. I guess Dad was wrong. Sometimes "if one is good two is better", is not always true. It did kill the weeds around the edges!

Happy Anniversary to Us!

Yesterday, June fifth Bill and I have married for a grand total of forty-four years. I was twenty and Bill would have turned twenty in two weeks. I feel truly blessed to have been one of the long-timed wedded. We are off to Padre Island next Saturday! A few days at the beach sounds heavenly right now.

Fun at Grandma's

Sophie is playing with a toy I bought for Grace! Poor Sophie I guess she didn't get anything for her birthday. She is growing so fast! She will be lots of fun in the pool this Summer. I blew up the hippo pool toy that Kiley got her last summer, so it is ready to go. Now if it will just quit raining and get warm.
