Blog Land

Hello everyone, as summertime has reached us, and
I have such a large yard to tend to ( house and job) I
just can't seem to find the time for blogging.
Would love to hear from all of you via-e-mail.
My grand hopes are to be back in late fall.
Everyone have a wonderful summer.

Fruits of our labor and a vacation!

Pink Knockout roses

Knockout roses

Morning glory

This area is behind my garage and has always
been an eye sore. I laid the sand stone, scatter planted
hosta, airplane plant, rock fern and monkey grass then
filled it in with black mulch. The neighbor's old fence
looked so bad, so I freshened it up with the lattice.
I found the little white picket fence to finish it off.
The begonia is called "Dragonfly leaf".
The ivy in the basket is a smaller version of English ivy.

Various types of mint

What's up Mom? (Millie)

Just a swinging! (Maggie is in the swing every chance she gets)
My fur babies have been with me every step of the way..

God has blessed me in so many ways and I want to take
care of all he has given me. When I am working with
my plants I feel so thankful for having the health to
accomplish what I do. I have to tell you, my body is
sore and crying for me to stop for a spell!!

~Blessings to all. ~

Can't you just imagine

I will be on vaction next week and this is where
I would like to spend it. Just an old pair of overalls with
lots of pockets, worn out sneakers a camera and
maybe a fishing pole. Don't forget the old quilt
for basking in the sun.

New Zealand's Milford Track

This is a backpak hiking trail in
New Zealand
Once described as the finest walks in the world,
the Milford Track is one of New Zealand's most popular
walks, with approximately 14000 people completing
the Milford track each year.
The Milford Track is in the heart of Fiordland
National Park, a World Heritage Area, also the wildest,
wettest and most isolated part of New Zealand.
Everything about this area is dramatic and awesome.
It was fashioned by massive uplifts of rock 2 million years ago, and
moulded by water in all its forms, ice,snow, rain, glaciers,
waterfalls, rivers and lakes.

Favorite Travel

I have had several people ask me which country that I might favor. As of now I think Wales is on top. I would love to spend several days just hiking through the beautiful country side. Thank you all for stopping by for the visit and sharing the beauty that God created worldwide for us to enjoy. Of course I enjoy the beauty and blissful peace just sitting on my swing in my back yard. I wish you all a very BLESSED Mother's day.

Wales is a country that is part of the United Kingdom,
bordered by England to its east,
and the Atlantic Ocean and Irish Sea to it's west..
Originally a Celtic land and one of the Celtic nations.
Many tourists have been drawn to Wales's "wild ....and picturesque"
landscapes.From the late 19Th century onwards, Wales acquired its
popular image as the "land of song", attributable in part of the revival of the eisteddfod tradition. Actors, singers and other artists are celebrated in Wales today, often achieving international success.
Wales is sometimes referred to as the 'Principality of Wales',
or just the 'principality', although this has no modern
geographical or constitutional basis
