Baptizing, Picnic, Garden and Surprise

IMG_0779Hello everyone!  Today was our annual church picnic and baptizing.  This young man accepted the Lord as his Savior and was baptized today.  It was getting ready to rain.  If you look closely, you can see a few raindrops hitting the pond.  The rain was much needed.

IMG_0799Here is a picture of one of our little areas in the yard.  You can see the park bench and Mr.  Rooster.  Our butterfly bush had a hard time this winter with all the cold and snow.  We thought it might not have survived but a few blooms made it.  The hummingbirds love the Rose of Sharon bush.  I spotted these two big rocks over the hill several years ago and got Marvin to bring them to the yard with the tractor.  He said that was a first for him.  Usually people want rocks taken out of their yard not brought in.  Now if you look way back past Mr. Rooster you will see my surprise!!

IMG_0805Another swing!!!  The girls and I found the frame to this swing years ago at the dumpster.  Here in Floyd, people set things out at the dumpster for other people to use.  I have even seen appliances sitting out with a note on them telling people what is wrong with them.  Anyway, the frame was pink and didn’t have a swing with it-just the frame.  The first year we lived in Floyd, Hubby made me the swing you see on the frame.  It hung on our back porch for years until just recently when we boxed in the porch.  No porch-no swing.  I told him when he took it down I wanted him to think of somewhere to put it.  It stayed in the building for a couple of years.  The other day the girls and I were gone for a little while.  When we got home, he had put the swing on the pink frame and painted them both.  I LOVE IT!  He sure knows how to get to my heart!!!

IMG_0801Now a few garden pictures.  We were working on putting this fence up around the garden when we found out all about Hubby being sick.  A friend came the following week, put up the remainder of the posts, helped us run the wire and tillered the garden for us.  God is so good.

IMG_0803Well, that’s about it for now.  I hope you all have a great Sunday and God bless.
