WISTERIA BUSH AND DOGWOOD TREE

My wisteria bush has more blooms then ever this year.  It just came up right in the middle of my cactus plant.  My husband used to baby it and now I do.   The dogwood tree is one of my big ones  the others are small but are also in bloom.

SPRING TIME IN ALABAMA

I  just had to show off some of the lovely what we call red bud trees that are blooming in my back yard.  I do not know why they call them red bud trees because the flower is more of a dark pink color.  We also have our dogwood trees blooming and I have some azaleas starting to bloom and when they are in full bloom I will post some pictures of them.  Also the wild iris are blooming.

WELCOME THE MONTH OF APRIL

                                                            Another Sure Sign

                                                           By Evaleen Stern

               When pink-cheeked on every hand little girls are seen to stand turning skipping ropes, -
                swish - swash!  While their laughing playmates run jumping over, - oh, what fun!  Swish -
                swash! Swish - Swash!  Two and two now, see them dash! one, two, one, two, round they
                scamper, softly thought, swish - swash!  Such merry  skipping, one, two, some one is
                slipping !  Oh, she's out now and must pay turning rope while others play!  See the bobbing
                golden curls, little skirts in rhythmic swirls rising, falling to the beat of the little skipping
                feet!  When these pretty sights appear, it is surely very clear April's here!














               The first of April, some do say, is set apart for All Fool's Day.  But why the people call it so,
                nor I, nor they themselves do know.  But on this day are people sent on purpose for sure
                merriment."    ~Poor Robins Almanac, 1790~

LAST DAY OF MARCH

While I was taking my morning walk I could not get over how the violets were blooming and some other spring wild flower.   Had to take a picture of them.  Spring is really here.  Even some of my azaleas are blooming.  Below are pictures of them.

WELCOME THE FIRST DAY OF SPRING

        It's Spring Again


Daffodils, tulips flower despite cold march rains. 
Sun grows warm, Birds sing in the trees, as they
come to life again after winter's sleep.  Now life
is all around you.  Smell the sweetness of the flowers,
rain, and dance---it's spring again.

HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY


"St. Patrick's Day is here, you see. We'll pick some shamrocks, one, two, three.  We'll count the leaves and look them over, and maybe find a four-leafed clover.  I'll sew green buttons on my vest, green for St. Patrick is the best.   I'll wear a green hat, very high, and dance a jig--at least I'll try!"   ~Author Unknown~


May the Irish hills caress you. May her lakes and rivers bless you.   May the luck of the Irish enfold you.   May the blessings of Saint Patrick behold you.  ~Irish Blessing~


May your blessings outnumber the shamrocks that grow, and may trouble avoid you wherever you go.   ~Irish Blessing~

ANOTHER BIRTHDAY FOR ME AND MY GRANDDAUGHTER KATIE

Well another year has gone by and I am celebrating my 78th  birthday.  I thank God he has given me this many years to enjoy life and I hope and pray he will give me more years to enjoy.  I am lucky to share this day with my granddaughter, Katie.  I have fond memories of when she was a little girl we would celebrate our birthdays together.   She is now grown up and is a fine young lady.  I love you Katie and I wish all your dreams come true.

WELCOME THE MONTH OF MARCH

"The march wind roars like a lion in the sky, and makes us shiver as he passes by.  When winds are soft, and the days are warm and clear, just like a gentle lamb, then spring is here.     ~Author Unknown~ 
 
"March is a tomboy with tousled hair, a mischievous smile, mud on her shoes and a laugh in her voice."    ~Hal Borland~

I still can not post pictures to my blog.  I have tried to find the trouble but no luck.  I still check each of the blogs I follow every day or evening and want my blogging friends to know I am still here and have been posting some on facebook  and if any of you are on facebook please send me a friend request so you can see what I have been up to.

WELCOME FEBRUARY

" Freezing cold winds, biting chills, and white snow fluffed hills.  Valentines  day, oh how gay!  Presidents' day is coming our way.  February, sweet an small, greatest month of all."

SNOWING

It is snowing here.  We are only supposed to get a dusting but it looks like we may get more.  I wish I could show you pictures but I am still having trouble posting pictures.  My daughter and son tried to fix the problem and I have tried the solutions  my blogger friends  have given me but to no avail.

STILL HAVING DIFFICULTY POSTING PICUTRES

I still cannot post pictures to my blog.  My son and daughter both tried to find out the trouble but could not.  I have finished the two pair of pillow cases I got for Christmas.  Now I am starting on one of the puzzles I was given.  It has been cold here and is going to get colder so they say.  I will stay in and hope and pray we get some warmer weather soon.

NEWEST SNOWMEN FOR MY COLLLECTION


These are my newest snowmen that I purchased for my collection after Christmas at 75% off. Couldn't resist... I think they are so cute! They will stay up with the rest of my snowmen until the end of January.
