On Memorial Day I looked out my living room window and saw this beautiful poppy! This has been planted for 3 years and this is the first time it's bloomed. Just had to show you a picture!

Took photos of other flowers growing in the garden.

Kock out Rose


Upside down planter with cherry tomato plant



I love ferns and this one is beautiful!

Bleeding heart I'm surprised it's still blooming.

I'll take more pictures as things bloom. Don't you just love spring!

Warm wishes,

PINK Saturday

It's hard for me to believe that PINK Saturday is here! I've decided that I'm going to put in lots of pink impatients this year and some white ones. A lot of my yard is in the shade most of the day and impatients do very well and are so cheerful!

This beautiful rose is from a bush that was already in the yard when we bought the house and it's still going great!

I love this clematis but it didn't do very well last year hopefully it will do better this year.

This is a woolly lamb that I've needle felted. Poking the wool hundreds of times with a needle is a great stress reliever! I think she turned out kinda cute. I have many more things I've needle felted recently and will start putting them on here for you to see.

Since my husband Jim's illness we are home together every day and my life so different - I'm sure there are other words I could use but yes everything is different!! If I go out he goes with me, if he needs to go some where I go with him because he is not driving yet. He had a heart catheter on Tuesday and oh what a stressful day that was. His appointment was at 10:00 am and they didn't take him in until 3:15 so we didn't leave the hospital until almost 9:00. His arteries are clean, his heart is still pumping at 20% and his blood pressure is very high and the Doc wants him to have a defibrillator put in. Jim is not sure he want one put in..he want another opinion so now we wait for another appointment.

Please visit Beverly at How Sweet the Sound to visit other PINK blogs!

Warm wishes for a Happy Mother's Day,

Pink Dogwood on Pink Saturday

On my street a few houses from mine is a beautiful pink dogwood tree. Today I was going to take a picture for PINK Saturday but I forgot..so I had to do a google search and I found these photos. They do look just like the one on my street. This year all the spring flowering trees look just beautiful.
Our hostess for PINK Saturday is Beverly at How Sweet the Sound . Thanks Beverly for doing a great job of keeping all of us on schedule for these PINK Saturday events.
Have a very wondeful weekend!
