Grapevine

100_9413

Our grapevine is coming along nicely.    Remember last year we cut it back too much and didn’t get not one single grape from it.  We are hoping for lots and lots of grapes this year.

We have been busy this week with school and other miscellaneous things.  Nothing too big.  We went to help Hubby yesterday.  The room he is working on needs lots of work on the floor.  It is sagging very badly.  He has to take the floor up and get under the house to jack it up.   It had little linoleum squares on it that had been put on with some kind of heavy duty glue.  We had to take the heat gun to each individual square and then use a shovel to get them up.  It took most of the day. 

We are having a little cold spell here.  We call it dogwood winter as the dogwoods are in full bloom.  We have been in the upper 20’s at night with frost.  Yesterday’s high was low 40’s with lots of wind.  Chilly but today has been nice.  Sun and temperatures in the low 60’s.  I like that much better. 

Well, that’s about all that is happening here.  I hope you all have a wonderful evening and God bless.

Apple Blossoms

Our apple tree is blooming.  Isn’t it pretty!  We are not sure what type of apples these are.  The tree was here when we came.  However they are very good apples.  The tree blooms very early though and usually gets caught in the frost.  I fear this will happen this year.  Temperatures tonight will be in the upper 20’s.  We have had a very hard wind for 2 days now so of course it feels much colder.  Temperature now is about 50 with a wind chill of about 40.  YUCK!  I guess this is what we call “dogwood winter” as the dogwoods are blooming now.  Warmer temps are on the way though.  Yeah!

My bouquet of flowers for the ladies today.  I love to have fresh flowers out when they come.  Makes the room look so much more cheerful.  We all enjoyed these today.  Forsythia and spirea.  Class went very well.  Two ladies could not come.  We missed you, Wanda and Vicki.  I know I have said this many times, but this really is a good study.  She takes it nice and slow so you get to just let it all sink in.  I like that.  I better get started on supper.  Take care  and God bless.
