Hello June!

WOW, for me, the month of May flew by so quickly! As I turned the calendar page to June, it looks like this month may pass quickly, too! We need to savor each day of beautiful sunshine, pretty flowers and pool time! We start our day sitting on our enclosed porch and end our day […]

Happy May

great impressions

It is blooming season and I couldn’t be happier! The smell of freshly mown grass and flowering trees is fabulous. It may be a little early, but I’ll take it! The month of May means that one of my all-time favorite things is happening, visiting the rural greenhouses in Richland County. The rural countryside views […]

Happy April!

Happy April! The BIG event is merely days away! Monday, April 8 is the total eclipse. Have you gotten your eclipse glasses yet? I’ve been told that many downtown businesses have them. Do you have big plans? My plan is to stay home and watch it in my backyard.  Here is a link for safety […]

Hello March


Hello March! It almost feels like spring! The birds are chirping, the sun is setting later and sights of spring are popping up everywhere! The winter décor is all put away. How do you decorate for “almost spring”? I showed you my inspiration for the grouping around my tv. It’s 99 % done. I may […]

Happy October! It’s officially fall. There’s a new crisp chill in the evening air. It’s time for apple cider donuts, football, tailgating, pumpkin carving, and the latest version of Pumpkin Spice something.

Hello September! We are inching towards fall with the cooler nights and not-so-hot sun. It’s time for fall mums and pumpkins! I recently read that if you want your mums to come back every year, plant them early – like now! I have several yellow mum plants that I have had for several years. They […]

Happy 4th of July!

Here is hoping the month of July feels more like summer than the month of June has. We have a pool and I have been in it once! I don’t ever recall going the entire month of June without swimming.  The rain we finally got and the cool nights have been good for the flowers. Here are […]
