Wicked Walk 5/6/2015

It was rather late when I had a break in the days activities and the rain that seems to be our new normal, I walked quickly around our place. Here is what I saw. The berries are ready to pick but a few blooms linger. A Redbud tree holding its share of recent raindrops….. The…

The last Wednesday in April was cool, clear and glorious!  All I had to do that day was see the dentist at 2:00 plus run some small errands.  So I took it upon myself to go up to the main section of the state forest surrounding our home for a lengthy, leisurely, restful walk. Here…

I scurried out late Wednesday April 22nd and fought the mosquitoes yet again.  Still, all was lovely. Here is what I saw. Flowers EVERYWHERE! And I wish I could send you the heavenly smell I inhaled!  The honeysuckle is everywhere and blooming like mad. Okay, bonus points for all who can spot the butterfly! 1,…

Flowers

I love moss rose.  You can’t hardly kill them, they flower every day and they grow super-duper fast.  This year I ended up with some great colors. Pink flowers are nice.  Red flowers are sexy.  Purple flowers are purdy.  But yellow, orange and peach are my favorite.  Luckily I ended up with all three. Happy…

I don’t put much thought into April Fools Day but I must say I was a bit of fool walking in the mosquito storm encountered this April first 2015.  They were thick and wicked and swarmed my head each and every time I paused for a photo.  I’ve lived here forever and never felt like…

Does life ever get crazy for you, my fair readers?  It does for me, more often than I’d care to notice or admit.  Wednesday March 18th was a bit crazy.  I awoke feeling perfectly rotten, drove to the dentist and had my teeth cleaned in torrential rain, came home and laid about most of the…

Big News!  It SNOWED.  Like, here, in Texas!  Where I live!  Sure it only snowed about 4 hours then promptly melted but it was pretty and it was fun while it lasted.  Snow isn’t my most favorite thing but I must admit, I was glad it was on a Wednesday so I was forced to…

Wicked Walk 2/18/2015

So most walks I have all day and I’m in fabulous humor.  Then there are day’s like February 18th.  I was not only in a somewhat ill mood, I had to be gone from the house by 9:00 in the morning, on my day off.  Which should make anyone ill in my opinion. Anyway, here…

Wicked Walk 2/4/2015

I slept until 8:00 today.  Well, I stayed in bed until 8:08.  It was glorious.  Until I realized my step-son had turned on the coffee pot at 5:30 and it went off at 7:30 which meant the coffee was cold when poured into my favorite mug.  I can’t stand cold coffee.  I gulped down a…

Wishful Thinking

I have a vision for my flower beds. In my mind they look like this…….. Organized chaos of color bordered by weed-free mulch, nestled around my home like a quilt of yellow, purple, orange, red, pink and green.  When in reality (since I work full-time, home-school, blog, sell books, have chickens, go to church and…
