Food For My Soul

I spent the last year putting most of my energy into recovering from my barn accident last April. I am finally doing really well. Some days I still have a limp, but I am trying hard to walk without one. I am not totally “there” yet, but I think each month is bringing me to my desired goal. […]

Happy Monday!

Here is a little bit of happy to help you start your week. Love these little wildflowers and their pretty splash of color. They are Lanceleaf Coreopsis. We call them Tickseed. They are very common and grow in all states except for eight. Even on drought years, we can usually count on Tickseed to bloom.

We Have Wildflowers!

We finally have a few wildflowers which makes me “Over the Moon” happy! In our area, the wildflowers are just beginning to pop up. We had a brutally dry year combined with a very mild winter and a late cool spell. I am not sure we will have an abundance of flowers, but you just never know. We […]

Off The Grid

I have been off the social media grid. Those who really know me might even be alarmed for they know I rarely go a day without being active on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, email or blogging. It just does not happen. The last few weeks have been crazy busy. Friends in hospital. Errands past due. Cleaning out […]

Dreaming of Summer

Never have been a winter person. Always dreaming of warm weather in the winter. Winter is not even close to saying good-bye. I am still dreaming of spring flowers with warm sunny days and a shower or two…

Winter Sunflower

Welcome to 2013! I have been busy taking down Christmas decorations inside and out, watching all the college bowl games, cleaning out all the old holiday foods and trying to get the house whipped back into some resemblance of clean and organized. Tried to write most of my thank you’s and today had lunch with a friend where […]

Not Yet Open

My friend snapped this shot of sunflower which was nearly ready to bloom, but not open yet. Love this! I have never taken a photo of a sunflower before it opened… not sure why because it is amazing!

Sunshine and Sunflowers

Most of you know that sunflowers bring much “sunshine” into my life. I love them. They are so simple and there are many flowers perhaps prettier, but I find the simplicity in sunflowers suit me perfectly. This spring I was not able to plant any sunflowers.  We have a huge jar full of many different varieties […]

FIRST Bluebonnet

If you read my blog then you know how disheartened I was last spring when we virtually had no wildflowers. This spring will be different and it looks like it might even be a GREAT wildflower season. This week our first bluebonnet appeared up on our hill. So exciting! Such a wonderful event for me. Such a sad […]

Took this photo of these pretty pink tulips and they simply “pop”. Love this color. Love  any color of tulip. They are my favorite early spring flower.

Friday Flower

Went to lunch with friends and found these lovely Anthuriums planted in an inside garden area. Anthuriums were my mother-in-laws favorite flower. They are also know as Flamingo Flower or Little Boy Flower. It was nice to see the beautiful color when spring isn’t here yet.  There is a little surprise in this photo and […]

Friday Foto

It is unusually warm today which is making me very ready for spring flowers. No wildflowers last spring which was so disappointing. I am so very hopeful that this spring we will have roadsides and fields full of pretty flowers. I am dreaming of yellows, oranges, reds, pinks, purples and whites. My camera will be […]

Restless January

My least favorite month is January. I do not do cold and dreary very well. (Our January weather has been beautiful so far, but I have high standard for temps and really dislike anything below 80!) January usually leaves me restless, bored and yearning to be somewhere else. Some years I am very productive and other […]
