Never been known for my warm and fuzzy thoughts,
Candy and valentine cards, none have I boughts;
But to my dear friends here in the garden,
My bad manners will you please pardon;
Just know that with none of you do I pretend
You are my dearest most treasured friends!

Happy Valentines Day to each and every one of you the finest folks this side and that side of the world!

Well, I have been stuck in the office again, cataloging more seed, developing pictures and trying to put out more spring knick knacks and just trying to undepress myself.

The sun decided to come out and stay so that is helping and well, things are on a roll.

Wonder where everyone is today! Must be tired from their wild sleighride yesterday!

smooth as peanut butter. Ack ack ack... opps forgot about that salmonela problem...

Aww shucks Candee. I'm all gooshy now. Here, have a posy to sweeten up yer nosey.

In honor of V-day, I made a red velvet cake, chocolate covered strawberries and cherry pie. And then for dessert, lol, here is raspberry trifle. Dig in y'all.

The weather is very surreal here, near 70 degrees, 2 foot snow piles in parking lots. It's the end of the world! Run Forrest, run!

Blossom and Candee - nifty lines of rhymes there. Poetry has never been my forte, so I will not even attempt any.

Thanks everyone for the goodies. Karma - I like liquors - the sweeter the better..
Elle - you just have to cover your chickens ears and eyes. Not sure I have ever looked closely at a chicken to see where the ears are LoL.

Sue - are you okay where you are? My sense of geography is almost as bad as my sense of poetry, so I had to look up where Coffs Harbour is in relation to where the newspapers have been reporting on the devastating fires in the southern part of Australia. I am relieved to see that you are pretty far from where the bulk of the damages are, so I hope that your area is OK.
Hope to hear from you soon - just so that we know how you are.

Thanks haighr, why yes I did. Finally getting to pull spring things out and welcome in the better weather. Still looking for those silly McCoys...!

Just got news this AM people down in Oklahoma had a rough night with tornadoes...Just talked to my DH and he was in that area a few days ago, actually left OK, yesterday.. thank God he has left there. They said 8 people got killed, buildings and trees, power down. What a mess. Yup, SPRING is coming in with a vengence when it starts raining frogs.

Check theirs...ugh

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090211/ap_on_re_us/severe_weather

Hope you are fairing fine this AM. I just got done slogging from the chicken coop and am looking to take my muckers off. Im done playing outside for a few hours.

Hey elle, how you fairing.. hear that nasty weather come your way and headed to TN.. as usual and right up the "alley"...

Terri, case you do not know what the Alley is, its the space in our midwest states that tordanoes generally seem to be... wlthough the weather can happen elsewhere...we live in the what is called the Alley.

That web is another report on Oklahoma... terri, there is a map. YOu can see the state of Oklahoma. Where they placed the word Washington... draw a line from the stat of Oklahoma to that letter W and that is sort of where the alley is and often the path of travel.

Read the thread on that website, you will get a better idea!

a sweet springtime release.
May they soon see flowers grow
as trees burst out in verdant glow
and rainbows arc in bluing skies
to welcome back the butterflies.

I booked hubby and I in for dinner at a cafe out in the country. They have a band on the night and are licensed to sell...ALCOHOL! (mmmm yummy, lip smacking)
I also booked us in to a cabin overnight, so we don't have to drive home on the country roads! (good thinking hmmm?)
We just had some good rain, so hopefully will have some flowers to arrange tomorrow!
Else I'll be cutting some foliage.
I hope this finds you all well?

Sue! So good to hear from you. Glad you are ok. That is quite a tremendous fire. It's good to see such tremendous generousity to go along with it.

Sounds like you and hubby will have a great evening. Cheers to romance!
DW and myself are doing the diner and a movie thing, then leaving the rest to spontaneity.

Blossom, love the red sneakers. I think London, Ky. is close to the central Tennesee border, at least a couple of hours from here.
We made it thru the night, once again unscathed, thanks to the forces that be or to simple luck. The Ohio Valley is know for flip-flopping weather, but the extremety and frequency of it has most definitely increased over the past few years.
3 wks ago, temps were so frigid, the next week, we had the big ice storm, the week after that, temps hit near 70 and we had tornado watches (the 2nd winter in a row). I'm stocking up on canned goods as we speak. lol
Seriously though, the climate everywhere is changing due to our mismanagement of things. I won't get on a soapbox. Instead, I'll continue to collect canned beans, find a cave and scribble my pencil down to a nub while boys fight each other over the last drop of oil.
Y'all can come stay around my wood fire and roast wild yams. lol

Terri, if no one is smart enough to ask you out, shame on them. And they aren't worth the bother anyway, so there. Besides, you have your majik slippers.

Wow, so many beautiful displays. Y'all rock. Weedy, I love that candle holder. It's very unique.

Karma, good to hear from you. I hope things are settling down there. I was in your city in the early eighties for a short time (not Mardi Gras), did the rounds in French Quarter, saw things a girl from a podunk town had never seen before. Had the best coffee, the best food of my life there, let the atmosphere of the place sink into my skin like a dangerous spice. I celebrated my 21st birthday with Flaming Hurricanes and Zombies, while a jazz band swirled notes around my head. The world was still spinning the next morning.
Hats off to New Orleans.

Terri, so you had a unexpected evening. You go girl. Told ya, one never knows...

Milky Joe is Josephine!! LOL.

It's half term for me, which means I have a week off work. I'm going up north to visit my folks in Liverpool.
They don't have a computer so I will see you all when I get back.

I've made a couple of arrangements for the cafe, so please water them for me while I'm away!!!

Ohhh, Terri, I love those wrinkly leaves. he, he, you know how I love to iron!
Lovely card Candee, and Milky Joe, make mine a baileys milkshake thansk, with a scoop of caramel ice cream. Yummmm!
And hey, I'll have you know, it was my idea for dinner and a cabin. Hubby was just along for the ride. He said I had enough flowers in the garden and he wasn't go to pay the exhorbitant prices they were asking for grocery store flowers! I have to make my own entertainment. This is me after one too many wines, while waiting for the meal to arrive (we were seated in an old railway tram). I ate and drank waaaaayyyy too much, and needless to say, there wasn't much romance to be had once I passed out! ROTFLMAO!

Hehehe, I'm gonna hafta squeeze that teat again and have another shake. lol

Will do Terri. I volunteer to water the flowers while you are away. Love those leaves. What are they? Hope you have a wonderful visit with your folks.

Sue, Sue, Sue, a picture says a thousand words. lol You do look pretty snockered, but very cute. I think you should frame that pic and give it to hubby. He would have to smile every time he saw it.

Good Mornin' Sue!!! Your eyes are a lovely colour! Your hair has grown!, very cute!!!
Thanks for the message in coins on the table LOL! Glad you had a good time.

It's good Milky Joe is busy, keep squeezing that teat for your shakes! Thanks!

Good Mornin' Plantgeek!!! Thanks for volunteering to be chief waterer, Blossom will be checking you actually do it!! The wrinky leaves are Aspidistra, they got the accordian style leaf maniputation treatment. ( a wire taped onto the back of the leaf and bent into shape) !!!
I have had those leaves since Christmas! They are a bit past it now so wrinkling them up seemed appropriate LOL!

I'm going tomorrow, (still here today)!! Better go and throw some stuff in my bag!
Have a bright day everyone!

Hi Blossom!, Mornin' !
It does help cutting flowers short to keep them longer. Less stem allows the water to get to the flowers quicker.

Blossom, no time now, but will show you when I get back. Just wrap the grasses around the broom handle. Wrap a thin cloth over it and tie with tape or string to keep it in place, until it's dry.

Will see you all at the new cafe' when I get back. Have loads of fun!
Bye Bye !





































missing you already LOL!
