Just a little touch

I stopped by to visit my friend today and she shared some Mountain Ash berries with me. I love how they look on my little bistro table.



I've been a fan of cobalt blue for a long time. When my husband and I were younger we would spend our weekends going to auctions, sales, and antique shops. We have some beautiful glassware from that time.

Today it is almost ninty so I postponed my job of tending to the garden and am reading instead. It's the new Steve Berry book..The Lincoln Myth. Stay in and stay cool...that's my motto.

To weed or not to weed,,that is the question

Ok, my gardener blogging friends. Is this a weed?


This weed? Has been growing up beside the pond and while I was gone grew at least two feet I liked the shape of it so I didn't pull it out at first. Now it's much bigger and is starting to get flowers. Should I dispose of it at once for fear that it will spew seeds all over later? Or should I just pretend it is a wayward flower in disguise?

Home again

We are back home again after a week in Tennessee with family. More pictures will be coming but after two days of traveling I'm going to rest. But what fun I had!

There is nothing more important to me than family. I love it when we can all be together. I miss them when we're not.

There is nothing like a dame

She's all girl And so sweet. Naturally I'm talking about my granddaughter Sara. There are certain things I never got from my boys. Like when we sat down at Chick Fil a and the first thing she said was about the beautiful flowers on the table. And how she had to pick out just the right shade of nail polish for me to do her toes. And the way she encouraged me to ride the roller coaster....just try, she said. When I said I was scared she grabbed my hand with both of hers and said...I'll hold your hand...and when I said I was scared she placed both her hands over my eyes and said...just close your eyes. And how she picked out Anna for her toy. It's great to be around a girl!
