A Weekend In My Garden...


I woke up saturday morning to find my two honey handsomes in the garden planting up a storm... Pink Geraniums, wave petunias, impatients, blue salvia, gazanias, scaevolia, pink zinnias, pink & white begonias, and, my favorite, a pink dog wood tree. Now, owning a landscape business my husband Mark is stretched out pretty thin, out of his mind insanely busy, so our yard is usally the last one done... I was very excited to say the least!

Honey handsome wearing a smile for me...


Mark 1 & 2 planting Geraniums around the lamp posts.


My oldest son Mark planting side by side with his dad... A kodak moment!
Around the Birch tree; Pink impatients " Rose Pink" and New Guinea Impatients.


Standing pretty, my pink dogwood tree.


A lovely poem: This was sent to me by my cousin Kim and really says it all. Enjoy!

Collect 12, it's not easy...

'Be kinder than necessary because everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.'

A sharp tongue can cut my own throat.

If I want my dreams to come true, I mustn't oversleep.

Of all the things I wear, my expression is the most important.

The best vitamin for making friends..... B1.

The heaviest thing I can carry is a grudge.

One thing I can give and still keep...is my word.

I lie the loudest when I lie to myself.
If I lack the courage to start, I have already finished.
One thing I can't recycle is wasted time.

Ideas won't work unless ' I ' do.

My mind is like a parachute...it functions only when open.

The 10 commandments are not a multiple choice.

The pursuit of happiness is the chase of a lifetime! It is never too late to become what I might have been.

Life is too short to wake up with regrets. So love the people who treat you right.. Forget about the one's who don't.

Believe everything happens for a reason. If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands.
If it changes your life, let it.
Nobody said life would be easy, they just promised it would be worth it.
A picture of pure innocence!
(This beautiful baby photo was sent along with this poem.) The most beautiful baby girl I've ever seen!
