Beginning of Fairies...


I have babies on the brain...This quote from Peter Pan would be great in a nursery
with its fairy dusted stars.
But I think it would also look wonderful in a garden.

Wedding Pots...

Meagan and Erik are getting married in the fall at an old barn in Thurmont. We plan on using my hydrangeas, which should be lovely shades of green and burgundy by then, for the centerpieces on the tables. I usually dry them and have them for sale at one of my fall shows, but this year they will finally get used for a wedding. I do believe in the back of my little mind, I planted them all those years ago just for that reason, always hoping that the blooms could be used for the weddings of my daughters. Holly and Chad were married at the beginning June and only several blooms were totally opened. It's usually around the end of June-beginning of July that the blues, pinks and whites are in full bloom.

Also for the wedding, I get to keep alive a dozen pots and buckets which we've filled with dark red and yellow dahlias, grasses, sweet potato vine and more, to decorate around the outside of the barn. So my patio and back porch have become a wedding holding area.



I've had these daisies for years...they were one of the first flowers I planted when we moved into the house over thirty years ago. I do believe my love for this simple flower made me want to garden. And yes, I did carry daisies and yellow roses at our wedding 34 years ago...They went so well with my cotton dotted swiss hippie wedding dress. ( which neither daughter wanted to wear)

Also...Still waiting for baby Dylan

I can be your Tinkerbell and you can be my Peter Pan

I'm thinking this would be a cute gift for a bride and groom to be.
Daughter Meagan is marrying her high school sweetheart in the fall.


However...I believe my soon to be son in law would prefer a Zombie sign.

One Week to Go...?


The baby count down continues as we await the appearance of baby Dylan.
Not sure what I want my first grandbaby to call me ( I figure he can call me anything he wants) but Lou wants to be called Gramps.

Life's Too Short So Dance Naked

I believe this is a Tinkerbell quote...
Doesn't it figure that with a body like Tink's, she would say this?
As for the rest of us...I guess we could dance in the dark!

New Arrival...

Our new niece...Calista Kay...

Lucy and Dre...Fox Pull


The poor fox...

Lucy and Dre knocked the stuffin' out of him!

Baby Update...

My niece and nephew, Leslie and Nicolaus, welcomed their daughter, Calista Kay at 1:36 am. Mother is doing fine...baby is perfect and she has Nicolaus' toes. This information I received from the very proud Grandmother by phone a few minutes ago. We also got a text message around
2 am from the Lou's brother Charly letting us know he's a Grandfather.

Now the wait is on for our grandson Dylan to make his appearance. He is due on July 23rd and the count down is on. Take your time...but hurry up dear child. So many of us can't wait to meet you.

Still Waiting...

Didn't get a new photo this weekend of the two girls...but neither have had their bundle of joy yet. Both Moms to be looked so tired and uncomfortable this past Sunday when they were here, I just couldn't ask them to pose for yet another belly shoot. My niece, Leslie, on the right was due on the 4th and my daughter Holly, on the left, is due on the 23rd.
You can see the Bash Baby Countdown on Holly and Chad's blog.

We're Adults???????????????


Does anyone else feel this way? I know in talking with my Mom who is 80, she says although she's moving much slower, inside she really doesn't feel any differently than she did when she was much younger. In my mind, I can't believe I've been married for all these years, my daughters are grown, and I'm going to be a Grandma in two weeks.
I guess it's true that age is a matter of mind.
