The new look is to go along with my new name, but I may change it again in a few weeks, or months, because I just don't like things to be the same all the time.
In my last post you can see the wonderful weather that we had for my son's wedding and this week I share a few pictures of some of our grandchildren helping me plant flower seeds and gear up for my first serious attempt at a garden.

Kyla & Easton helped me to plant Marigold, daisy, pumpkin & Four OClock seeds. We are starting them in small paper cups and will then transplant them to flower beds.

Granddaddy shared a popsicle with the little ones and you can see they loved it. Raspberry I think.
While Kayden made all kinds of faces, she kept begging for more. Love that face!
|My New Raised Bed|
The seeds were all finally planted and watered. The few little tomato and pepper plants, given to me by my friend Judy, were finally in the ground. Check out my new raised bed, put together by my Uncle Paul & my husband, James. I was very excited when Paul, told me he wanted to make me one for Christmas. I am a little late getting started with my garden, but it will still grow. I am investigating deer repellant, as we have deer in abundance in our yard and the woods surrounding it.
He framed it out and then transported it to my house. He and James installed it, and put in the automatic sprinkler system. It turns itself on for 15 minutes every morning at 6:00am. Now if I could find an automatic weeder?
Wish me luck, say a prayer, I have been known to have a black thumb, but they say having a garden is a scientific process, anyone can learn to do it. I am a smart woman, who can follow directions. I can do this!
I will keep you posted on my progress.
