Yesterday morning,Meems,from Hoe and Shovel,was gracious enough to open her gardens to some of us West Central Florida garden bloggers.It was so much fun meeting everyone who’s blog I read daily.(and viewing Meems’ garden is a treat in itself,I am here to testify!)How wonderful to put faces with internet friends!No photos(I forgot my camera).Plants and gardening ideas were swapped.The information garnered from each other was amazing.I learned so much!
I was fortunate enough to meet:
Brandy from A Ponderer Digresses
Rhonda from A Garden Almanac
Kay from My Garden Path
Janice(AKA Pumpkin) from Graceful Cottage Gardening
Susan from Simply Susan Thank you SOOOO much for the Lily!
Meems’ delightful elderly neighbor(I MUST introduce her to my Dad)
some Master Gardener friends of Meems and Rhonda
if I left anyone out,I apologize.
Came home hopping and skipping(YardBoy doesn’t get the hopping and skipping thing when I come home with a new plant-what’s up with that?) with oodles of treasures.
Life is good!
On to the more mundane….
Since yesterday morning,it has rained on and off.Quite heavy at times.The rest of the time,just a drizzle.But when it came down-it came down!
I see some retrenching in our future…..
On a disgusting note,YardBoy found these two having sex,in our weggie garden…
One died.By pitch fork.Hope they enjoyed their little soiree’…
And on to a more happy note…
Most of the rainy times,this weekend,were spent finishing a crib quilt that my late mother had started years ago,and never finished.Why she never finished it I don’t know.When I cleaned out her craft chest,after she passed away 32 years ago,I found everything.It was almost all put together.It just needed to have the binding put on it.The fabric was there,so it was quite simple to put it together.She had embroidered the squares when she was about eight years old,when she had Rheumatic Fever.
Did she mean it for a future great grandchild? I have no idea….but I think so.
So,Emma(I call her The Divine Miss E),this one’s for you……
Can’t wait to meet you!
