A morning stroll through my gardens, everything still damp from the rains overnight. A little bunny hops out of the prairie garden, we were both startled to see one another! Thankfully Freeway was off chasing a squirrel in a grove of trees. The air this morning is so humid, so thick, you could cut it with a knife...but it is cool yet so very comfortable. Yes, spring has finally arrived in full bloom to Iowa. Today I have 7 more flowers to get in the ground, and I will be pretty much done with the planting. My vegetable garden is coming up so well however, the darn weeds are already taking over!
My hubby's dad and step mom will be coming in June for a visit! I can't wait to see them! And then my dear friend Vicki will also be visiting in June. What a banner month it will be! I love company!!!! With my husband's work, we have never lived close to our families, so each and every visit is more than special.
Well off to hoe the vegetable garden. I am almost finished with a rag quilt that has taken me a month to finish!! Can you believe that?? Sheesh! I can't seem to stay indoors long enough to sit at my sewing machine. And I have been working on the sweetest rag rug for months and months, but I'm still at it!! You will love it, and I will take some awesome pics when I get a little further done. Hugs and Love-from my garden to Yours!


  1. Loving your garden! Lavender...oh how I love lavender! So beautiful!
    Thanks for sharing your little bit of heaven with me.

  2. I know what you mean about not wanting to stay inside. Gosh! It took nearly half a year for the warm Spring to arrive... I say enjoy it!

    Your flowers are lovely and I also love the fence line decorated with wagon wheels and pole beans.

    Wish I had a green thumb.

  3. how fun with the company, Sharon! I loved that daisy, such a pretty color! looks like you guys have a big piece of property; must be fun exploring all the wonderful things growing on it :)
