Working on tracing the roots of my family,
I've found it's so important to be thankful
 for those in our in our lives today


The greatest gift our parents
 ever gave us was each other

“Be nice to your siblings,
they’re your best link to your past and the most likely
to stay with you in the future.” – Baz Lurhmann

children of the same parents,
each of whom is perfectly normal
until they get together.” – Sam Levenson

Love you two!

Here a Chick... There a Chick

Seems everywhere you look,
chickens are coming home to roost
in the backyards of homes,
not just on the farm.
Folks are enjoying those fresh eggs.

While we can't raise chickens in our yard,
(in Baltimore County one needs
an acre to have chickens)
we can make some Coop Decor.

Below is the first of several new
chicken signs.

Blueberry Pickin'

Blueberry Pickin' with 
the grandlittles on Thursday morning.

We went to Weber's Peachberry Farm
just up the road from home.

We picked lots of berries and were having
a wonderful time until our
Darlin'D started to scream.
He had been standing on an ant hill
and was covered with  ants.
Stripped him down to shake the ants
out of his clothes and
then quickly headed home.
He had some bites and we put
bite and sting spray on those
and he's fine.
But I doubt he will want
to pick blackberries when those
are ripe.

Lilies and Coffee

We're having some rain today. 
If it clears a bit this afternoon
I'm hoping to get these lilies planted. 
My daughter separated these in her garden
and I got the extras. 
Now just need to find the right spot
and dig the hole.
When I receive plants from other
gardeners and plant them
in my garden, I feel
like I'm creating memories.

What is your favorite coffee? 
I try different kinds
but always seem to come back to
Dunkin' Donuts Coffee.

Hydrangea Blooms...

 At least I have a few of these beautiful blooms...
There was an overnight freeze in April, after the buds had
begun to form, and I lost the blooms,
on most of my 20 year old bushes, which
would have opened for this summer. 
But the bushes near the house are the
Endless Summer variety
and they are beginning to pop open.

Heading to the shop this morning, coffee in hand,
to ship the last of the Father's Day orders.

Have a wonderful Tuesday!
