Sunny Spring Saturday

My daffodils were so pretty this year. They began blooming last of February and then burst into a glorious display early March. I had began to think they were safe from snow
and then…

March 12, 2022 we got a heavy, but pretty snowfall.
It caused my daffodils to freeze-to-death.
That made me sad.
However, at least we’re done with that ‘snow-laying-on-daffodils-once’.
Now Spring can continue to bud and bloom…
(until our last frost in a month or so, which hopefully won’t freeze so hard that it bites all the beautiful green things to death.)

Speaking of Spring, my day-lilies have awoken and are growing. Shelibean posed in front of them for me.
Bless my wee-boy’s-heart, he’s starting to show his age, thankfully he’s still a puppy at heart and a loving, happy little soul.

Happy Spring to you all!


BumbleBeeuaty on Hosta bloom

Good Monday Morning!

This morning, I saw this beautiful bumblebee in my hostas. It rested long enough for me to get a fairly good photo. I was so happy with it, that I decided to share it here for your viewing pleasure.

I was going to write on the meaning of bumblebees… however, when I looked up the meaning, I read so many different ones that I couldn’t decide which one would be fitting to share.

So, I’ll just comment on what it meant to me, ‘Seeing a bumblebee, feeding in my flowerbed, was a blessing. It gave me a sense of hope and comfort for the Summer days to come.’

How about you, is there a moment spent with nature that makes you feel blessed and hopeful or comforts you?

Wishing you all a pleasant week of hope and comfort.


Unique Lovely Lily & issue update

I was taking photos in my Lily patch and came across this lovely 2 color lily. It’s so unique and fun. It made me smile. I don’t recall ever seeing it bloom before.
A couple years ago we bought several different varieties of lilies for the front yard. There’s quite a bit of shade in our front yard, but we figured the lilies would do okay. Unfortunately, we were wrong, they didn’t do well and barely grew or bloomed.
Last year, We made a lily patch in the back yard, in an area of full sun, and transplanted the front yard lilies to it. All the lilies took off growing and have thrived wonderfully.

My Blog Issue Update:
I can surf blogs with other browsers, fairly well now, but not for posting and commenting.
I’m using a Chrome browser for posting today. I want to see if it helps my issues before I contact WP support.
So far, so good…
I’m going to try and visit and comment using Chrome.
Hopefully, I’ll be able to visit and do a bit of catching up with you all.
Wish me luck 🙂

Wishing you all a beautiful week free of issues.

Lilies & Zinnias – low maintenance lovelies

We’ve spent quite a lot of time outside enjoying the colors of Summer. I never tire of seeing the flowers in bloom. Right now the lilies and zinnias are making a show. I’ve kept my camera busy. For me, the fun things about my lilies and zinnias are that the lilies are perennial and require very little maintenance and the zinnias are all volunteers from last year’s zinnias and require no/low maintenance as well. Pretty neat 😀

Wishing everyone a beautiful week!

Random 5 For Friday

I’ve a new knitting loom project in the works. I hope to get it finished soon. Here’s a sneak peak.

I bought a sunflower mat and butterfly flowers from the fundraiser my niece’s sorority was having. I wish it was warm enough to get these darlings growing, but that’ll be a couple months from now.

The freezing snap we had this past weekend bit our pear tree blossoms and made them start turning brown. The pear trees are usually so pretty with their dainty white blooms, but this year, they’re sad looking.

It’s warmed up a smidge here, it’s a dreary, rainy 42°. We’ve had so much rain that even the daffodils look sad.

 Earlier this week we had internet trouble. We bought a new router and thought that would fix the issues. Well, it did for about 24 hours then the issues returned worse than before.
I picked up our home phone to call internet support and was met with a shrill squelch and loud static. I checked our other house phone lines and they were dead.
I thanked the good Lord above for my handy-dandy mobile phone and then called the phone company and reported the issues.
They sent out a service guy and he discovered that our phone trouble was caused by line issues down-the-road-a-ways. It took 3 service people a few hours to fix the landline.
Our phone works great and the internet is faster than ever… Yep, you guessed it, we didn’t need a new router. However, since our other router was 4 years old, we decided to keep the new one. We’ll hang on to the old one for back-up.

I hope you all have a weekend free of cold and internet issues.
