Our Brand New Bundle Of Pure Joy!!!

Say hello to Jeremiah! Boy did I have a hard time keeping this one!! But my daughter insisted we wait, and of course we did, but not an easy one to do! Little Jeremiah arrived on late Tuesday afternoon. Mom and Dad are doing fine. Grandfather cannot stop grinning because our little joy is named after him..."Jeremiah Malcolm" I cannot remember the last time seeing his chest stuck out so far, except for the time our little Jazzy was born! What joy we felt looking into his sweet little face.....truly a blessing. He weighed in at 8 pounds 13 ounces, and 21 inches long! Oh what a joy, oh what a joy!

I love you sweet baby
sweet baby of mine.
Oh how I love you sweet baby
sweet baby of mine.


I better go now, I have lots of knitting for baby to do! :o) Wishing each of you a beautiful weekend....

A Garden Walk.....

Hello to each of you! Hoping your week has been a beautiful one thus far.... This past Saturday was our annual neighborhood "garden walk". I captured a few photos from our court garden and Honey could not resist snapping a photo of beautiful foxgloves. There is something absolutely magical about know sweet little fairies live among the foxgloves, or at least that's what I am told. :o) When it comes to beauty, this little orchid takes the cake...just lovely it is! Growing something as beautiful as these orchids I am afraid I can take no credit, but I surely do enjoy them in the court garden! Spring time brings with it so many lovely flowers....
Lovely red amarilla! My Sweet Mother's favorite color, this beauty would surely capture her heart!

Above is an absolutely beautiful cactus flower. It is so hard to believe that something so lovely could blossom from a not so beautiful cactus! These flowers always bloom right in time for Mother's Day each year.....beautiful they are!

I am so happy that the earth laughs in flowers!! Have a lovely week.... By the way I have something special next post! :o)

Please let us all remember the people of central China in our prayers.....

A Mother's Day Wish!

Artist Josephine Wall

Wishing each of you a Happy Happy Mother's Day! Though my sweet dear and loving Mother is no longer here on earth, her love is ever present.... I love you so much Mom, oh how I love you so much....

To My Mother

For all the times you gently picked me up when I fell down.
For all the times you tied my shoes,
and tucked me into bed,
or needed something, but put me first instead.
For everything we shared,
the dreams, the laughter, and the tears.
I love you with a special love
that deepens every year.

Each of you enjoy your special day.....
