Summer,is that you!!!

Finally, I think you decided to meet us! It has been a long time coming. And its been beautiful out. Today is a bit gloomy,but we do need some much needed rain. So,I will forgive you today!!!

My flowers are growing so nice and the yard is looking so green. Janet would be so proud of my flower this year. I was so nervous about planting new flowers since we moved here. A few have died and I removed them,making me even more nervous.But Janet always gave me encouragement to just wait and see. The three year idea has stuck with me since. First year to plant them,second year to let them get used to it all and in the third year you will enjoy them. And that is what I am doing today. It seems strange that I didn't need to plant anything this year....So, I decided to just watch what I do have planted,grow. I finally got the chance to enjoy the Iris's that I was able to take from her yard. When she was very sick, she asked us if there was anything we would like of hers to remember her by. I wanted to know her favorite flower and she gave me one from her own garden. So, every morning I wake up and look out my window, I can see her favorite flower in all its purple glory. Thank you Janet for all your help and encouragement in my gardens. Your wisdom and kind words will never be forgotten. Instead of having those words though,I would much rather have you here!!! We sure do miss you......

Happy planting...And enjoy the sunshine.

Dear Lord...Give me strength!

Today is the day I have been dreading since last September...The offical last day of school for the summer break. I am already going crazy. Forget all about structure in this house for the next 3 months,forget about sanity...It is all gone!!!!Pray for me!!

Until then.....Enjoy the summer!!
