A dry day!

In search of... A dry day.

It's has been raining pretty much non stop for a week now. 
I would love to have a dry day to get these little pretties in the ground
The Dahlia was a vivid red when I bought it.
Don't know much about Dahlia's but this one sure faded.

I planted some Zinnia seeds this year. I hope they succeed but in the meantime I have this one. 
Have a great weekend!

A special kitty

My sweet little Pie has been shedding excessively this past year. Needless to say I attributed the hairball honking to the shedding. WRONG!
I noticed a lot of honking and no hair balls...
Turns out my little sweetie has asthma! Whoda thunk it. I feel terrible I didn't get her to the vet sooner. She is on prednisone to clear her little lungs and then she is going to get a little kitty nebulizer. OMG!
She is such a good girl and a good sport with the medication.

She seems to be improving but I can tell she is still not okay.
As long as she is eating and trying to play I will not go overboard fretting.
I love her so much!

A Holiday Weekend

I took Friday off and
It was a beautiful warm sunny day.
I pulled dug weeds a good part of the day.

Finished with some pots on the front porch
I'm going to hang the fern but it needs to be separated first
It has completely outgrown the pot it is in.

There used to be a small evergreen tree here.
It turned brown and I had it removed.
I couldn't think of what to do with this corner but 
I think the rose turned out nice.

Found this Clematis at the nursery. I couldn't resist. 
I am hoping it will cascade along the front porch railing.

And these little pretties are waiting for a home.
As soon as the horrible aches and pains caused by weeding and digging subside.
Anyway, it's raining. I get a break inside cleaning up cat hair. 

Have a wonderful weekend.

God bless our fallen hero's.

A squirrel

I don't often get squirrely visitors 

This subdivision is fairly new and the there are not a lot of mature deciduous trees

But this little one found its way to the feeder

Crafty little critters

I am just getting started

After three too cold or too rainy weekends 
I went to the nursery.

I found some very pretty things for the front porch which i will show later
This is the beginning for the back deck.

The ground is so wet I can't do the beds yet.
They are full of weeds and overgrown grass.

I a big job to tackle. 
It's supposed to storm again tonight. 

Take Care!

Checking In

I have no excuse.
I just don't feel like it!

Since last time
A few things have happened

April Showers?

The bunnies are busy
and the crazy grass cutting cowboys have replace the
maniacal snowplow dudes. 

My Magnolia is in bloom.

I am happy it is spring!

Happy Mothers Day to all the Moms!
Take Care
