Yesterday the girls spent the afternoon picking dandelions. We are making dandelion jelly. We tried to make it several years ago but it never set up to jelly stage so we had dandelion syrup. It was very good just not what we were trying to make. So this year we are trying again. We followed the recipe found here http://www.simplycanning.com/dandelion-jelly.html
They picked about a gal. of dandelion flowers however this was too many. Next time we will not pick as much.
The most time consuming part is getting off all the green stuff.
They are such a pretty yellow color.
I have excellent helpers though so no matter what we are doing it goes fast and is lots of fun. These girls are awesome!
After finishing the dandelions, we enjoyed chicken on our new grill (my birthday gift from my other awesome daughter and son-in-law)
Enjoy your day and God bless.
Hello everyone! Look at my pretty birthday cake my friend Vicki made me. Thanks so much Vicki!
We celebrated with pizza and cake.
She got me this infuser. I have wanted one of these for quite some time. It will fit over any size canning jar (wide mouth). We had a great evening. Thanks again Vicki!
I thought I would share a few spring pictures with everyone. I am not sure what these flowers are. We made a trip to Rocky Mount today and they were on the side of the road.
Mayapple coming up.
Pretty tree(in other words, I am not sure what kind of tree it is).
More pretty flowers. Rocky Mount is off the mountain from us. They are warming than we are so their season is about 2 weeks ahead of us.And just because I know everyone wants to see more pictures of John Luke, here he is coming home yesterday evening. Enjoy your day and God bless.
Isn’t he beautiful!

Our friend Bumblebee, who sat with us all day, all night and all day again just for this moment! Mommy, Daddy and John Luke. God is good all the time and we praise Him for this brand new person in our family.
