Late June Bloomers

Quick video of what we have blooming in our garden.  Thanks for watching.  Hope you are blessed today!

Thursday, June 12, 2014


I saw this on another gardening blog this morning.

To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich; to study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly; to listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart; to bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never. In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common. This is to be my symphony. William Henry Channing 1810-1884

Quick video of what we have in bloom

Here's a quick video I made of what we have in bloom right now.  

Already as hot as can be and the mosquitoes are attacking us every time we walk out the door.  Thanks so much for watching and I pray that you are blessed today!

Hugs!  Carol

Here's a link to a You Tube I did recently showing my Zinnia Patch
My favorite flower and looks like it will be a good crop!

More Burlap and the kitchen is painted!

For her back door
 Burlap Curtains for my Daughter, Lisa
For her kitchen window-love the rod she choose!

 Finally got my kitchen painted.  It was an ugly blue.  Now a warm, golden yellow.

Over my sink with my burlap curtain and new light fixture.

Thanks for stopping by.  Hope you are blessed today!

Burlap Projects-Wreaths, Stockings and Curtains

 While my daughter, Lisa was here for Christmas, she made a beautiful burlap wreath for herself

Her finished wreath.
 Not to be out done, I had to make one for myself.  Especially when I realized I had no "winter" wreaths to put up after I took down the Christmas ones.

Now I just need to make 2 more to have one on each door!
Christmas stockings for some of my grands
New kitchen cafe curtain

Close up of curtain
My sweet poodle kids, Elton and Gracie!

 Hope your day is a blessed one!

We have been debating about getting a new poodle since our Eddie passed away a year ago.  I am allergic to dogs so I have to be a bit picky.  I have lived with poodles all my life so I know how smart, fun and loving they are.  I saw some puppies on Craig's List last week so we went to take a look.  Meet Gracie
She is as white as she can be and is so pretty and fun
Already a little diva
She follows me everywhere and waits in the kitchen while I cook. 
She plays hard and all the sudden-she's out like a light.  I have fallen in love with her and she with me.  My old guy Elton who is 14, is not too sure yet.  We have caught him playing with her a bit but he stops as soon as he realizes we're watching.
