Coming from here: http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/t/1224546/#top
This winter has been strange to say the least, but I only have 2 complaints.
#1. Amount of oil we used from Jan. 10 to Feb. 10th was high due to zero snow cover.
#2. MY POOR PLANTS!!! Heaving, freezing, then warming up to 45...they are VERY confused!!!

Even the house plants are ...my SHAMROCK is blooming a full month early! ^_^

Oh what cuties! One of my DDs pulled that thing of walking on their first birthday for the first time. It's the perfect opportunity. There's an audience all sitting around eating cake. We were so shocked and surprised, we didn't have the camera ready.

This is looking off the back deck at sunset the other day. As you can see, we have very little snow cover and all those 'twigs' you see on either side of the oak tree are my apple tree's.

So Tarsha's team did well, but did not place 1st or 2nd which are the only ones who win. Still, she had a hard day but so much pride for her girls...you could see it beaming off her, and here's why.
Not one minute into the routine, an elbow or a knee connected with this young ladies head. No one knew but her...she never swayed, flinched or bowed her head. She pushed through the routine and only when off the floor did she hug her BF and swoon a little. That's when they saw IT...

I have to tell you this part, Tarsha would kill me if she knew I said anything.
When the cheerleader was being looked at by the nurse and the bump was growing at an alarming rate Tarsha started crying. The cheerleaders Mom had to console Tarsha, not her DD. Her DD was not crying but mine was sobbing!!!!! LOL

I have been getting strange cell phone calls everyday.. I called verizon to get it blocked and they said they can't because it is not a 10 digit number.. I googled it and there are other people getting this number and some are saying it is from out of the country and when I pick up it will transfer there call and use my minutes to make there call.. not sure if it's true.. but I never picked it up because it was so strange.. bad news is they call 4 or 5 times a day.. it's really annoying .. the number comes up as 923-46

One of the unfortunate things that I am sure the designers did not anticipate is that the east side of the north pool is always wet from the wind picking up the water from the fall and creating a spray. Feel bad for those with loved ones names on that side. Hope they address that.

Pics of little kids are even better than pics of our pets! so adorable.

If you see some of the Madonna and child paintings by old Dutch Masters, they show the same finger thing. I used to marvel at how my three kids looked like they were doing tai chi--choreographed movements of their arms and legs as they sat or lay down on their backs. Made me always wonder exactly what neurological connections they were forming.

Yes - the tile work in the subway station is Gustavino, which was revolutionary in its day. It allowed self-supporting arches made of three layers of tile, instead of heavy masonry.

The skylights were tarred over for WW2.

Thanks Bill!
They have only been married 2 months but have been friends for 13 years, and dated 5 1/2.

Just got back from the house, there are great potential gardens, but a lot of pachysandra and vinca they want to take out.

sounds familiar ... good luck with the pachysandra.. been pulling it out for 8 years now.. tell them to dig deep and replace the soil.. pulling it is not good enough.. leave one little piece of root behind and it will grow right back

Awesome photos, Debi! Every shot had something really pretty, clever or unique in it. They are such a great-looking couple and it was clearly a very happy event for all! You looked beautiful in that dress too. So exciting about the baby! I love Celeste's idea of sending them a plant. You will have to give us their wish list or ideas of what will work well in their gardens. So happy for you all!

Thanks Louise. I don't know if you recognized Sue and that is Jackie with her.

I'm thinking there is a large shady area so hostas, or other shade plants. Only some daffs, Scilla, and vinca in bloom now.

Last night in Staunton, VA, we went to one of our favorite restaurants for a splurge night out, and we always pass this huge metal watering can in the medium park of gorgeous spring bulbs and pansies that is a memorial to a lady who must have been the beautification chairperson. On the other side of the flyover behind the watering can are enormous meat flower pots overflowing with colorful flowers. Here is a shot of the water can garden.

Interesting! We like Staunton. It has an interesting downtown. The restaurant is a renovated flour mill. The food is wonderful. It is always busy, but worth the wait. I realize a shortcoming in icab...you can't edit a typo or misspelling...like "medium" instead of "median" as i intended to write. LOL. After 2 pretty good days (fatigue-wise) i was so fatigued today I was aching all over. So, typing anything coherent was practically not gonna happen! It's 8:30 and I'm already tucked in bed.

Pretty funny about the hipsters. They should have ratings of the colleges that way. You have to go there, and if college isn't in session, you can judge by the number of fixer bikes that the hipsters own.

Sure don't like how icab perverts the photos! I need to see if there is a different app for the ipad. Regardless, I think you get my drift. Lol

How funny, the perversion in iCab. I haven't seen that, but I can only upload 2 pics per post. Mine is the original iPad. Do you think that makes the difference?

This is great. Gotta whip my family into shape and duplicate this. Including the cats. Watch the little guy in the back.

Great family video, and clearly a lot of fun to sing these bombastic queen songs. Wish I had made a video of our three 1 year olds reproducing (hardly singing) the Beach boys Barbara Ann. Better than their renditition of Scuppers the Sailor Dog.

Oh, that was wonderful!!! Brought back memories of our long car trips to go camping in the Adirondacks. DH's choices were more along the lines of the Kingston trio. Heehee
