It's going to be a RED White & Blue summer for the artists at HARTS and to kick it off, some of the gals have decided to offer up some fun items on ebay. You can get there to view the items by Clicking Here

Here is a sneak peek at what I am offering:

It is an Americana Angel that is a bag holder. She was a lot of fun to make and would love to hang around with you.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Spring is really here! Cool mornings, thunderstorms, pollen and all. The temps during the day have already been reaching into the 70's. Is it any wonder that spring is a favored time of year for many? My azaleas are really starting to open up, my fingers are gritty and grimy with dirt from weeding; I have to make myself put gloves on. I love to feel the dirt! But occasionally I will get a surprise while weeding and a big old ground spider will jump out at me. I fall on my tush ever so gracefully and start doing the jerk. I hate spiders. Therefore, gloves are my false sense of protection . . .


We have started to cautiously put out some of the veggies we started under lights to get them hardened off. We have two types of lettuce, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, tomatoes, bell peppers, squash, and etc. We turned over the compost pile and discovered what appears to be gourds emerging.
Hope that everyone has a great day!
Here's a pic of one of my weeds - I bet you have it too. It is a ground ivy called gil o'er ground.

Hi Blondie!
Love your little gal's green eyes!
Best wishes for a fruitful garden. (Ours is still a work in progress and we set out a few things this past weekend.) Hope the threat of frost is passed. Now if we could just do something about the "dangers" of deer and crows.:)
Blessings to you~
Cathy

Hey You! I was just in the mountains of Tennessee - dogwoods were glorious - I didn't venture to NC (home) but knew the TN mountains were a mirror image of the NC mountains - I took the time to read the whole Charlton Heston speech and am glad I did.

Blondie,
I too enjoy dirt from the garden under my nails! I should wear gloves because I am the one that always gets the poison ivy where everyone else could roll naked and not be affected. Poison ivy stalks me...do you think I can get a restraining order so it will stay away??
