Chokecherry Day

One surprise phone call on Saturday morning turned it into a Chokecherry Day. I had planned a very ordinary domestic day when was going to catch up on some serious housecleaning, make some birthday cards and start on a Summer Letter for the friends who look forward to photos of my garden. Still in my […]


Birthday Picnic

Yes, I had a very good day on my birthday. I had Judy and Ning who sit with me in church, and we stopped to pick up Gayle at her house. Though we had to wait a few minutes for her ride to drop her off, after attending their church. I had prepared a lunch […]


Garage Sale at Church

Our church had planned a community Garage Sale at Church on Saturday to raise money for a missions project. I had signed up, having piled things up in my front porch for either a yard sale of my own, or to join this one at church. Friday, I geared up to make mini-flyers and labels […]


Cleaning for Company

I was busy Saturday cleaning for company. Maybe you do that too? You don’t mind the ‘lived-in’ look, because you need to have things handy for the things you do throughout the day, and sometimes you just need to “be” who you are for a while without first picking everything up and putting away, or […]


It’s Raining!

“It’s raining! God is Blessing!” Dad used to say ecstatically on a day like today. Mind you, it was a German proverb he was quoting. He also loved to see a “Seven Day Soaker”. I don’t think we’ve had seven days of continuous rain yet, but we’ve been averaging 2 or 3 days of rain […]

My Darlin’ Dahlias

I’ve got to introduce my Darlin’ Dahlias to you today. I don’t have time for a complete garden tour. (Maybe further into July). However, I’ve been delighting the last few days in my Darlin’ dahlias growing in the tub of the old dryer I had when I moved here. There’s a new flower pretty well […]


My Take on Brexit

Would you like my take on Brexit? If you know me, you know that I’d rather talk about myself than to gossip, or talk of politics and start a quarrel that I’m not ready to follow through on. But like everyone else, I’ve been hearing on the news all weekend (and most of last week) […]


June Garden Tour

Well, I think I promised you garden photos, didn’t I? So a June Garden Tour is in order. I have wondered about doing it as a web page or on the blog. The web page version is more work, and today I’ not in the mood for work that much… (Odd to hear that from […]


When Your Internet is Cut Off

Do you panic when your internet is cut off? Just out of the blue my line went dead here about half an hour ago, and Whoa! This is not fun for someone who is online all day, working at different things. I was just debating what to write in the RoseBouquet this morning, but I’ve […]
