The First Flower of theYear!

Hurray! One of my flowers actually bloomed! I am going through a bad garden year. Two out of the five types of flowers that I am trying to grow this year, are not going to bloom till next year! I didn't read that part on the seed packet till it was too late! Then two out of the three (excluding the ones that didn't bloom) are not going to grow at all because the rabbits ate them! "sigh"  But, I still have one flower that is doing very well.  They are about to bloom any day now!! It is the forget-me-nots!!  They are so easy to forget!     


Here is the first flower!


And the forget-me-nots! 


Number 10:  Fig Newtons     The recipe: The Faux Martha

What a feeling it is to get a lot of things done in one day!! I love it! It makes me motivated to do more things!!

We have gotten so many cherries!! We had to put a net over our cherry tree because last year all of the birds ate them!!

Winged Owls

The owls have come back!!! Only this time they came with wings!!   And I started to hand sew all of the eyes and beaks on instead of gluing them.  These are much better quality than my other ones!!  Come and visit them on my Etsy shop!!
