Hope you're having an awesome weekend!
Our weather has been so warm and beautiful and I'm so happy I could just burst.
This morning, was spent at church as they were having a Health Fair. It was fun hanging out with everyone. I'm realizing how important fellowship is!!
This afternoon, I played all day long. The grass was all cut, house was clean; even all three dogs had baths.....-- Playday!!!!! Nothing, makes me happier than playing in the dirt. Other than praising my Lord of course.
Well, here's the vintage gate I found yard saling with Maxi thee other day! Finally got it planted! God is soooo good, coz I've looked and they're just hard to find. Then when you do find one, they're usually outrageous. This one was FIVE BUCKS! Thank you Lord!!!!! A Lincoln Star clematis is ready to to climb the post to the right of it. The yellow flowers in front, are Coreopsis. Today, I planted some salmon colored Glads. Hope they do okay; they were some puney lookin little bulbs. Time will tell. If they don't do too well, we all know the morning glorys will find their way to their spot anyways right? !!!
Remember when I told yall, that our highway has miles upon miles of red clover growing along it and when it all waves in the wind it makes me giddy? It's truly incredible. This evening, on our way home from a Wendy's Frosty break, we stopped and I picked a bouquet. ;) Isn't it beeeeautiful???????? Take a good long look! Now close your eyes, and just imagine it dancing in a breeze. Another one of God's masterpieces!
Mrs. Potter received flowers today.* There was no card. She said someone just left them on her doorstep. (She must have a secret pal.)
I tried to sweep the shed today but it was so windy, every thing kept blowing back inside. I decided to stop chasing after the wind, and plant!
Okay, so these look a little on the sad side. These are going to surprise you! Just wait! This is going to be our "before" picture. I dug them up from thee over-flowing flowerbeds. Then I cut them back to the root; watered, and now we wait! Are you patient? I hope so, coz they're worth it! In time, we'll come back to this picture!
This coffee pot, was found, the same day as the gate. It didn't have a lid, so I knocked holes in the bottom with an awl and transplanted a few of the same flowers as in the claypots above. Funny story: Long ago, I had an olde, enamel- ware coffee pot with holes in it and it was setting right in front of the potting shed. It was a little shorter than this one. I'd filled it with potting soil and planted a posy in it. The next day, I walked by and all the dirt was pushed up on top? I thought, "What on earth?" I picked it up and started to push it down gently and IT MOVED!!!
Scared me to death! My little visitor turned out to be a toad! I thought it was a snake for sure, but nope; squatty little T O A D. I took her out, and fixed my pot back up the way it was supposed to be and the very next day... it was the same ole way! She'd moved back in! So I forgot about my plant and let her have her new abode. Who knows? Maybe one will discover this little pot too if we set it out front and put a little rock up next to it for a ladder!
Have an awesome sabbath! The Most High God is worthy of our praise!
