Mother's Day

                                                                                                                                                                                                                    Debbie with my gift, Ken is behind

Debbie and Ken came to see me yesterday, Saturday May 7, 2016.  We fixed a big beef, vegetable soup.  Carrel called  it a stew however soup has more liquid, so it was soup.  Carrel made corn bread, yes he washed dishes.  I told you he is a dream come true.

Ken bought  Debbie and I the same beautiful orchid. I wore mine for them yesterday.


Debbie and I walked through my flowers.   Debbie said it looked like bouquet  That's what I wanted.    I am not  finish, someone said you never are.  I had a goal when I started to have something blooming every month,  I think I have this now however I will have to organize my pictures.  Now my goal is to get rid of grass.  All but one of my beds are fine.  The biggest one is awful.  I will not give up until I have the perfect plan.  You should always have a goal.

Well you can see the blank spot full of grass we planted lilies there however we got so much rain they rotted.  While  Debbie and I were over in Carrel's yard look what welcomed us. Debbie  found him first.  He was fussing at us  and Debbie fussed right back.  He was so cute.

 This rose is Cinco De Mayo   ( May fifth  )           Mexico's Independence day.  It did not take the virus my other  roses had  and it is  a very good bloomer.

We were using a spray on our roses   I had lots of Butterflies they left. This is the first one in several years.
Three years ago we stopped.  This year we started using one you pour in the ground.  I would see butterflies fly around but never lite I planted Butterfly weed in 2013 and it has come ever sense.  So I hope I have many more.

I hope you have enjoyed this blog as much as I have enjoyed  writing it.  Thank you for watching my garden grow and bloom.  I hope you plant one of your own.  We can not have too many flowers, not possible.  Happy gardening to you from Carrel and I.   Juanita.
