Hi Loca and Flower,

Cold here today. Wind is strong. Blew the poly off the GH this am. 33 outside. We scrambled. New design next year. LOL

Enjoyed your grandparent stories!

Barnesville (Charle, GA(Zone 8b)

Well, now you know I'm dragging up the rear. that's what us mule people do. ☺☺

Sometimes you're in front and sometimes you're behind. I tend towards the later myself. lol

Quieter over here huh? Sometimes you just need some quiet laughs with good friends. How's that wall hanging coming along Mindy?

Phoenix, AZ(Zone 9a)

Me to Enid, Put me on the waiting list!!

Me Too!

Glad you're not in jail littlenettie!

Enid, OK

Glad things went well for you at Dr. Nettie! And extra glad you didn't have to go to jail. See, not hitting the Dr. is a good thing!!

So far, the storm we were expecting missed us. Hope we can make it through today with no weather. I am soooo ready for spring - I even got my taxes done yesterday in hopes that April 15 will come early this year!

I wouldn't even know where to start writing a book guys! Will have to stick to a story here and there for now.

Everybody have a great day. I am off to Dr. appt. for baby with ear, nose, throat dr. today. He has constant ear infections so thought we best find out why.

Monticello, KY(Zone 6b)

Good morning everyone. Cold out but the sun is shining bright so it will warm up this afternoon.
Seray that wall hanging is still waitiing on me to wash it and attach the ribbons. I drag my feet terribly when it comes to any type of sewing but maybe this evening I'll get my rear in gear and finish it up. Meanwhile, I'm busy working on the first of the girls Easter sweaters. Have the back ready to go and almost half way to the armhole on the right front. The color is white for both sweaters their mom picked it out but on this one I'm putting lacyhearts on the fronts and up the sleeves and the sleeves will also be gathered at the top. Hope it comes out looking good cause this is one of my own designs. I have a sweater design program I like to play with and usually try new features out when making the girls sweaters because they don't care if I mess up a little bit LOL they are just thrilled to get the sweaters. The second sweater will have lacy butterflys where this one has hearts if I can find a lacy butterfly motif pattern somewhere.
Enid just start with the stories you've already posted here put them in one file then add to them off and on and soon you'll have your book written.

I'm off to start my busy day exercise, hair cut hopefully, shopping for pants mine are not only a bit too big they are also so old they are starting to fall apart now they don't have anything to keep them in place LOL

Pearland, TX

I didn't get to do my wintersowing last night. Pout. Dh decided to stay home from class to get other homework done and hogged my kitchen table. He was also in a rotten mood so I hid in the bedroom and read my book with the kitty snuggled up beside me. I am fasting for my medical monitoring this morning, so blood sugar is low and I'm cranky because I can't have any caffine and my son was up half the night coughing.

Funny story though. At 5:30 this morning, little man came into my room and says "HI MAMA!!" I pulled him up into my bed and he had no diaper or pajama bottoms on. I asked him where his diaper was. He said "Anthony take off diaper and pants." If it wasn't that early it would have been really funny. I went and got him a pullup and we snuggled back in bed for an hour til it was time to get up.

Good news is tomorrow is the local Master Gardner's sale. I have a list! :D

Barnesville (Charle, GA(Zone 8b)

hey all hope you are doing good..We are still at the hospital..I sure do hope we get to come home one day next week.I miss getting to talk to you all every day..I feellike I have missed so much..Caleb is doing much better just waiting now to be sure the grafts take then we can go home..

Phoenix, AZ(Zone 9a)

Good news Trish! He will be home before you know it! Kids are tough.

Glad to hear he's doing well Trish. You'll be home before you know it and it will be spring!. We'll send you lots of seeds and plants to help you and your son recover. My guess he would like some CP's. Gives a kid great pleasure to watch a plant eat bugs. LOL Nothing so healing as a moon vine unfurling and filling the air with fragrance. It will slow you down and reconnect you. Let us know when you're ready. I have a package in mind for you both.

Hugs

Phoenix, AZ(Zone 9a)

Speaking of CPs, I see little red nubbies starting on my Pitcher RRM sent!

I'll try to get a good pic this weekend to show you all!

Dellroy, OH(Zone 6b)

I haven't killed the Cp Charleen sent me. My youngest is excited about the "Bog Garden" she is planning for this spring. And that one plant is what started it....so yes, kids gardening is great medicine. Will be praying for a speedy recovery.

Robin asked me to post some picture from the Philadelphia Int'l. Flower Show that's going on this week. It's the largest indoor flower show in the world.

80,000 Freeze-dried flowers used to create the 28 foot high hot air balloon. Including 55,400 blue pansies to represent the oceans and 23,700 roses of different colors for each continent.

This exhibit was so cool. Everything suspended from the ceiling. The blue represents the sea, the tan the sandy beach. the greens are grass and trees, and the white the snow on the mountain tops.

I was told the woman who designed this took 10 hours on Friday to hang all of these.

Phoenix, AZ(Zone 9a)

Wow, Mitt! That's an amazing picture. How fun you got to attend!

How cute! What do they have growing on there do you know?

There is a DGer in Phoenix who grows lots of topiaries, mostly with wire vine and creeping jenny I think. They are really cool.
