    Molly….they also look like Sweet William to me.  I shared the deep red SW seed with you last year….is it possible that you sprinkled them there?  Charlene

    That is just gorgeous, Charlene….hard to believe it is a new bed….it looks like it has always been there.  It appears that every bulb you planted grew!  Thanks for sharing.  Charlene

    Good evening everyone….1st day of Spring here….and we had temps of 68º!  Wow….felt so good.  I was SO tempted to take off work early, but too much work there to do that.  We are to have nice temps all weekend, so I should get my outside work started.

    We did initiate our front porch tonight….DH cleaned it up and sprayed it down earlier and came to my shop and got the new cushions I made.  We relaxed and visited….DS & DGS came over for a visit…and I cooked chicken on the grill….I LOVE it! 

    [quote user="skippydel13zone6KY"]Nathan came and was going to take Jacob again overnight and he said you know Aunt Del, you didn’t make a difference EVER with us boys, its JB’s turn, [/quote]

    Just what did he mean by that statement???….was he being a little smart a$$ because you asked for your key back?

    Have a good evening everyone.  Charlene

    Very nice Stella!  I can see why you want to take a break right now because of gardening around the corner and other plans for you….but it appears to me that you have acquired a hobby that will pass many winter days and nights!  Thanks for sharing all of your lovely gourds with us.  Charlene

    Good morning everyone.  It is 28º this morning, but at least there is no snow on the ground.  I hope this is the last of the 20s….time to move forward. 

    Rocky….so sorry that you are so dry.  We’ve gone through that for 2 years, but lately we have been getting lots of snow and rain that should be helping us catch up….at least we have been taken out of the exteme drought area.

    Molly….seems like you could be sharing rain with Rocky…..lol….I know you would if you could.

    Del….hope you get your day off tomorrow.  The way my calendar looks, I should probably start working Saturdays for awhile, but I sure hate the thought of that….too much to get done here at home.

    Wendy….wow…mowing already?  Our grass is greening up so I suppose it won’t be too long here before we have to mow. 

    Bette….hope your stepping stones turned out okay….and hope the weather cooperates so you and Cameron can have a “fun” day working together.

    Linda….yay….things growing is so exciting!  I look forward to the day when it is warm enough to take my morning stroll through the yard before work….little chilly for that yet.

    Sharon….hope that comforter does dry for you!  They are buggars to try to dry in the dryer….and they smell so much fresher when they are line dryed.

    Just another day in my shop for me.  Have a great day everyone.

    Charlene

    Lovely flowers everyone.  Mary, I bet visiting the tulip farm does bring back good memories for you….can’t take those away.

    Xeranthemum….aka Paper Daisy….these dry easily and keep their color all winter…..this pic is from last year.

    Well, Hello there, Donna!  It is really good to have you back with us.  I am sure it has been a l-o-n-g week for you.  We do enjoy the modern conveniences of life, don’t we?  Not only enjoy….we depend on them!  I am sorry about the families with children and no power….hope all turns out okay for all.

    We have also been having lots of snow, cold winds, and cold rain….at least we have now been taken out of extreme drought category.  This weekend is finally promising to be Spring weather….we are actually supposed to be in the 60s and we have only had a couple days in the 40s….lots of cold weather.

    I hope you have time to catch up on posts….and if you don’t we can fill you in when needs be….nothing too exciting, but lots of gardening and Spring talk since some peole have actually been having some Spring weather.

    Glad to have you back with us.  Charlene

    Good morning everyone….31º and sunny here right now.  We have our last chance of snow tonight and tomorrow, then promises of a nice weekend….60s and sunny….wooohoooo….we haven’t seen temps anywhere close to 60 yet so that will be fun. 

    Weather man last night said “there is an unexpected weather alert for our area….(showed a map with all of us in orange.)  We are going to be having above normal April temps Friday Saturday, and Sunday…..this means that you must go for a walk, play frizzby, garden, grill, and whatever else you have been wanting to do since last October when winter set in.”….it was sorta funny!

    We got a phone call at 3:45 this morning calling DH into work.  I then had trouble getting back to sleep….and then had problems waking up.  Gotta run and get ready for work.

    Have a great day everyone.  Charlene

    Such pretty Spring flowers here this morning!

    Mary….how fun to go to that tulip festival.  We have a Dutch community here in Iowa that has a tulip festival every year….but I think it is the 3rd week in May….difference in our climates.

    Someday i will be able to post pics of things blooming….but for now I have to be content with sharing pics from last year.

    White dahlia in bloom last August
