My very thoughtful daughter, Deann, gave me another
pair of pillowcases to embroider. The picture does not
do them justice, they turned out, I think very pretty. Thank
you Deann.

We got a lot of rain and wind last night and as you can see
from the above pictures we had one big oak tree come down.
We are so grateful it missed the house and our vehicles parked
in the driveway. It did damage many of my bushes and the
swing (hopefully it can be repaired). My husband was out
early with his chainsaw and got some of it cut up before it
started raining again.

and his wife Lisa a very Happy
28th Anniversary, and my
grandson Eric and his wife
Summer a very Happy 5th
Anniversary. Love you all.

This morning when I went out to help my husband with
some swimming pool work, I noticed the moon still up in
morning sky, so I just had to try and get a picture of it. That
little white dot is it.

These flowers come up every year in the yard. They are
on a tall slim stalk with white flowers that are in a spiral
shape. An up date on the white flowering bush, it is clematis.

I am not sure what this flowering bush is called, but it has
the most delicate white flowers on it. If anyone knows the
name of this flowering bush please leave a comment. It was
growing wild and I transplanted it to my court yard where
it has done well.

Pictured above is a totem pole carved with a
chain saw by a man here in central Alabama
This one is in my side yard (which is known
as the court yard. If you look closely you will
see a lizard, turtle, and of course an Indian head.

This one done by the same man reminds me of
Neptune, God of the sea. I use it to hang a bird
feeder and bird house. It is in my back yard and
but does not get to much attention since it is
hidden behind a fence.

Indian bust also done by same man has a special
place in my now rock garden (used to be my fish
pond until some hungry owls ate all my goldfish.
