I'm looking forward to...

My first little pink tulip to poke her gentle little head out of the ground.
Stolen lilacs. Yes, stolen. Although, maybe I might be able to pick one branch from my own this year.

Grape Hyacinths which I can sooo relate to because sometimes little things have to be bold!

Fresh little buds on all of the trees and bushes. I'm crossing my fingers that the trees we planted last year will all be alive.

Buttons had not only spring fever, but summer fever, in January I had to tell her that it just wasn't quite time to be sporten the sun glasses. Although, she just looks so darn cute in them!

My parlor at chistmas.

In the past, my front room has always been pinkish or purplish. But this year I decided to go with brown and white. I made some cinnimon ornaments. Grab some things from around the house and bought three darling little chandilier ornaments and wa la. I had a new tree.
The kids and I had a lot of fun decorating it and I really liked how it turned out. I think I'll do the same thing next year.

This is our family tree. It has all the kids ornaments on it. It's fun and wimsical! You can see more of our christmas day posted on March 10 at Lacys Blessings or click on the link on my sidebar.
What sweet little blessings I have!
Love, Lacy

My bloggy soul faded away with my garden

I'm catching up on my poor neglected blogs.
Last fall my life became crazy. I had one child in morning kindergarten and one in afternoon preschool.( Over here in Roosey town we don't have the luxury of a bus one way for kindergarten.) I was now in scouts. I had the girls in dance for the first time
and Q in karate. I was just trying to survive like my roses that kept blooming half way through November. (Roses never bloom in November here.) I can honestly say, I have never felt so busy and my mind so clouded. I've had a very traumatic year, that thankfully has only affected me. But My body was tired like these poor sunflowers down here.
My heart a little let down.
Blogging was the last thing I had time for or even cared about.

My bloggy soul faded away with my garden.

But now I'm trying to squeeze in a little time for blogging and get caught up on some pics. So I hope you don't mind a few pics from last year.

Hopefully, the mud will dry out soon and the daffodils will bloom!
Love, Lacy

Don't die of shock!

Don't die of shock but I finally posted on Lacy's blessings. Don't expect it to be new knews, though.

An Heirloom

Zinnias Every spring my mom comes bringing a big mayonnaise bottle of Zinnia seeds that come from my grandma's Zinnias. My grandma has gathered these for so many years that these little seeds grow to be huge and beautiful. Bigger than our local greenhouse can grown them.

I lovingly plant these little seeds along the edge of my veggie garden knowing that once they start blooming they will be show stoppers and also keep the bugs away.

There are so many Zinnias that I am able to pick bouquets. This is so special for me because they are the only flowers in my garden that I am able to do that with. Someday, hopefully, I will have many flowers to pick from for bouquets.

When I was finished putting them in the vase I noticed how pretty they look next to my sink. I had to add these antique garden gloves to make a vignette. The gloves are so cute! They are a creamy white and they came from my grandma, as well.I love how these gloves have the bumpy old plastic on them.
What's more cheerful than Zinnias with sunflowers?

Even the little creatures in my garden love the Zinnias. These great big bumble bees are constant little guest at our house and we welcome them gladly!

I wasn't able to get a great picture but the humming birds came to visit also. If you come and sit quietly (My kids and I love this!) You might just get lucky enough to have a humming bird buzz you head!

The cold is coming and as the Zinnias fade I pluck there sweet little heads and put them in my own Mayonnaise jar for next spring. Maybe someday 60 years from now, my own grandchildren or great grandchildren will barrow my mayonnaise jar of seeds and plant their own crop of Zinnias. I sure hope so!

Love, Lacy
p.s. You can see my kids first day of school at Lacys Blessings.

pink perfection

You can read about Questen's first day of 3rd grade at http://lacysblessings.blogspot.com Meanwhile...
This flocks was hidden behind a bazillion hollyhocks this year so I thought I would share its beauty with everyone.

Cozy Little Baby

Our little family is sad today. Our sweet little Cosette kitty was killed by a dog last night.
Cozy was so cute and she entertained us with her playfulness.

Cozy is on the right and her brother chip (left) will miss her dearly.

We will miss her dearly. Thank you Cozy for having a constant sweet purr that soothed our hearts and letting the little girls pretend you were their baby.
We'll miss watching you chase your brother and bugs.

We love you. Good bye
