A Day In My Life

Iris's & Daylilies that my mother gave me.
I put them in my holding garden until I find
them their new home. I am pooped.

My baby Japanese Maple surrounded by
marigolds (I planted from seed) & monkey grass
that I transplanted.

One of my beautiful Easter Lily Blooms

My Roses that Sweet Hunter gave me at my mailbox

Me in my P.J.'s with my
quilting magazine on my screened porch!

I have been trying to catch up on my gardening. I am running behind in my vegetable garden, but I will get it done. Here are a few pictures of what I have been doing. My mom gave me some iris's and daylilies and I planted all them today. They look droopy now, but will perk up soon. I planted all of them in a little raised bed garden I have. I plant extra flowers and plants in there when I am not sure where I want to put them. This gives them a good start before finding their new home. I have also been trying to catch up on other outside chores such as mowing etc. Our plans are to go to the lake this weekend so I have to get everything done! It is suppose to be sunny and in the 80's. I hope so because I can't stand cold!!

Oh my goodness! I got a surprise in the mail today! Guess who it is from.....
"My Sweet Mother!"
It is an American Quilter magazine!
Thanks Mom!

Enjoy your time at the lake.
