Wild Roses

Wild roses are blooming everywhere here.  We took this picture over at the job site.

Also, blackberries are in bloom.  If the amount of bloom is any indication of how many berries we will have, there should be an abundance of them this year.  I helped Hubby again today at the job site.  We pulled wire all day for the electrical.  I think I have always taken for granted the amount of wire that is run in a house to make everything work.  I will be helping him again tomorrow.  Hopefully, tomorrow will finish up most of the electrical.

I wanted you all to check out the size of this toad frog.  He was huge!!  He had wondered up in the back yard.  The girls carried him back down to the pond.  We thought he would be much happier there.

Another picture of the goslings.  I hope you all don’t get tired of seeing them.  It seems every time they come up into the yard they have gotten bigger.  Well, that’s about all for today.  I put a beef roast in the crock pot before we left this morning.  Green beans and biscuits sound good to have with it for supper.  I try to keep supper easy when I work with Hubby.   Enjoy your evening and God bless.

Dollywood

Wednesday, we had a GREAT time!!  We went with the Horn’s to Dollywood.  They had bought season tickets and got free one day passes to take a friend.  We were their friends.  Thanks again, guys.  We left Floyd at 7:00 that morning and got back home around midnight.  It was a long day but filled with fun.  Everyone was tired but happy.  Please be in prayer for Vicki and Quentin.  Quentin’s grandfather passed away yesterday morning. 

Yesterday was a dry day here in Floyd so I jumped in and started working on the garden.

I tillered both gardens and got them ready for planting.  It was a full day.  This morning I started getting the plants in the ground.  So far, I have planted the potatoes, corn, onions, broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower.  After lunch, beans and tomatoes.  The girls will be helping me with them.  They have been inside doing the housework this morning while I worked outside.

These are the seeds the girls and I planted in the greenhouse.  They have done really well.  Maybe all we needed all along was a greenhouse.  They certainly look the best of any seeds we have started before.  Hopefully, they will do good when transferred into the garden.

The squash and cucumbers have really grown.  Speaking of growing, look how big the goslings are.

They were up in the field watching me while I worked.  Well, I think that’s about it.  I better get back into the garden.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

 

 

 

 

 

A Good Day

Yesterday was such a fun day.  Daniel and Sam spend the day with us.  We went riding in the “bumpy truck.”  When we came back Daniel told me “That SURE was a fun ride, MawMaw.”  I love it.  Children are so easy to please.  Just simple things make them so happy.

Wild strawberries we saw blooming on our ride.

PawPaw, of course, pointed out the deer trials.  It was a very nice day here yesterday, warm with lots of sunshine.  This allowed for lots of outside playing.  They saw the chicks, the new kitties, the baby calves and the goslings.  A full day in little boy world. 

We had a storm pass through last night with thunder,  lightning and lots of rain.  I’m not sure what the day will hold.  Right now it is cloudy and everything is soaked.   Maybe not a good day for hanging clothes on the line.   We’ll see.

This rosebush came up on its own at the fence line.  It has had a tough time getting started.  The cows keep wanting to eat it.  This year though it is huge and full of buds.  It has never bloomed before so we are excited to see what it looks like.  I hope you all have a great day and God bless.
