I am so Happy, again!!

I was just in checking on the post to Helium, the hardest one to write, but doctors orders are doctors orders. The great part about it is not the story, but, I finally received ranking today. I HAVE A STAR... So I am happy!! I really got a laugh from another story that I read. The women said when found herself in severe pain, that all of a sudden she was surrounded by a bunch of guys that looked like guys from a chip and dale show!!!WHOOO HOOO and here she was in blue thermals full of holes!!! I know that feeling.. Always would happen when hubby needed 911...
Beautiful here again today, but desperate for rain!!!

New Pretties today

I found a new flower today that I forgot I had planted. It is a miniature Iris, Dutch Iris, and it was hiding behind a clump of miniature daffodils. WOW! What beautiful color for such a little plant. Now I know what they mean by good things come in small packages..
I also finished the keepsake box top today of Trixie, the beagle, and still have two coats of polyurathane to go before I get to put it on the box and ship it.. Will post a picture of Trixie finished..

Spring has sprung!

The flowers know it is spring and have arrived in brilliant yellows, pinks, blues, lavenders and purples.
The bulbs so lovingly planted the day after Christmas, have met my expectations. I can enjoy this beautiful view any time day or night from my kitchen window. Makes me almost feel like I should do dishes or some thing like that.
They will look so pretty Sunday for Easter!
I would imagine the daffodils will really show up tomorrow night for full moon.
Happy first day of spring.

Just to share something special!

I'm not sure where this came from but I really like it and would like to share it with you.
Just thoughts that meander through my mind!!

As we grow up, we learn that even the one person that wasn't suppose to ever let you down probably will. You will have your heart broken probably more than once and it's harder every time. You will break hearts too, so remember how it felt when yours was broken. You'll fight with your best friend. You'll blame a new love for things an old one did. You'll cry because time is passing too fast, and you'll eventually lose someone you love. So take too many pictures, laugh too much, and love like you've never been hurt because every sixty seconds you spend upset is a minute of happiness you'll never get back.

I await with !!

Oh they are trying ever so hard to push through and arise with all the glory and beauty that spring can offer!! All this rain has really stirred my flowers and they are coming a long great. I picked my first batch yesterday and the smell of double daffodils waft through the air all night long. I still fear for my "Kiss Me Over the Garden Gates" for I'm sure we are not done with frost yet! They come up from seed and believe me they are up in abundance this year. I shall watch ever so close and if necessary, tuck them in at night should a cold spell hit. We are at 66 degrees this morning with rain heavy at times. I'm loving it. If you have never grown flowers in sand during a drought, then you wouldn't understand how my heart soars when I see the beautiful blooms! This I can say proudly since you can all enjoy the photos that I post.
I am going to once again this year attempt to grow Moon flowers, it has been a few years since I last grew them. My friend has also promised me some of her "Red Hot Poker" plants.

Giving me fits

Trying to work on the beagle for one of the keepsake boxes. It took me four hours to do those beautiful, sad eyes. I had to put my brushes down and walk away after that. Started back working on it today any first thing, a spot of paint got too near the right eye. "Bummer"!!! So then I went to the wood working shop only to find, I have a leak in my roof. Maybe I should just hang it up for today.
