It's Cherry Blossom Time!!

Yes, it's that time again! The Yoshino cherry trees are popping out! My trees have just begun to bloom. Hopefully I will have full blooms like these! This is from a few years ago on the Cherry Bloosom Tour. (Not my trees!)

It is so pretty this time of year. Everything is blooming...Spring has sprung.

But you better look will be almost 90 by Thursday!

And that means Summer is almost upon us. Not looking forward to a hot summer...but I think that will be the way it is... So enjoy nature's beauty. It won't be here long!

Soon Middle Georgia will be in the Pink!

Now if I could only get rid of the pollen.... :)

Happy St Patrick's Day!!

The Savannah St Patrick's Day parade is over and it did not rain! Well, this picture is from the parade in 1986..and it did rain. And I walked anyway!! It stopped and the sun was out in the end. There were rainbows and leprechans everywhere!!

May the sound of happy music
and the lilt of Irish laughter
fill your heart with gladness
that stays forever after!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!

It's a Jungle Out There....

In my backyard that is!! Spring has sprung here in Middle Georgia and all that is growing in the yard is weeds. Tomorrow I plan on cutting it...with my push mower! Yep I have an old school mower. Actually we have a guy that cuts the grass but he hasn't started his bi-weekly visits yet! Sometimes Sweet Mama likes it "trimmed" in-between visits. So I got a push mower. That way I don't have to go to the gas station and get gas! It's me and foot power baby!!
This is my challenge! Nice isn't it... I have to get it cut tomorrow because the rain is coming Friday. If I don' may not be able to see the fence from the house!

This was my Tulip tree (Japanese Magnolia) before the last freeze. Now it has little green leaves all over. And the Cherry Trees are starting to bud.

Should be Cherry Blossom time before you know it!!

New and Improved

Hi Friends!

I know I have been missing for awhile.... First, let me say, thank you for a GREAT anniversary sale!! I sold a bunch and made it to 1500 sales!

After the sale my brother LB came to visit from Iowa for a week. It was great weather the mid 70's! Even Beau was happy to see "that girl". You know that they have had a contentious relationship, as she invades HIS screened-in porch all the time. I'm trying to teach him how to share but that's not going any where. Don't tell her but he is happy she has left...

Next I had two,...count them two, bad colds!! I hadn't been sick in years and then two. really...? I hate being sick. And now Sweet Mama has the Shingles! She had the vaccine but got them anyway. It is a light case and hasn't been painful, just very itchy! We got to the doctor right away and hopefully have everything under control...just have to let it run it's course!

In the meantime, I have been working to come up with a new apron. I had a customer want one to fit a size 4x so we worked together to "make it work"! It is adjustable and has longer waist ties. I added two the shop yesterday and one sold! Here is the one still available!! Now I just have to finish the pile on the cutting table and get them listed. If only it would stop raining so I can get pictures!!

So how have you been??
