Ohhhhh, noooooooo! That picture reminds me of the sweet blue chow we had before Roscoe - my husband saw her one day running along the fence - playing with a skunk on the other side of the fence! :)
I LOVE the sled dog picture!!! Beautiful!
We started out buying 25 or so already grown from another nursery. Now, we plant about 250 bare root from JP every year and sell all or nearly all. Our JP rep told us our roses are in the top 10% of all his dealers and he has 6-8 southern states along the eastern seaboard.
This is a tough area for roses. Hot and humid. Not a good combo.
P.S.Yay! Stephanie is gone! We were right, Dita!
This is certainly a beautiful bouquet - and the frame compliments it so well!
Thanks, Maj. :) You're so cute. :)
What darling little bluebird babies! :)
Such a cutie! The falling snow just wakes up all these snow graphics, doesn’t it! I forget to use it sometimes when it would be just the punch a graphic needs!
Before I moved from our last home, I had so many roses I couldn't keep count. I miss my old garden so much. I've planted quite a few since we moved here. Love all roses but particularly fond of HTs.
We have humid summers too. I faithfully spray. The deer are a bit of a problem. They like them as much as I do. ;)
Nice Holiday display....I always knew carrots were healthy and I will really be healthy when I dig into that carrot cake. It is one of my favorite cakes.
After I get some work done, I will come back to play, ya’ll!
Hi, there, gg! How sweet your wedding ring story. :)
I’m going to play it again this morning..I did a very thorough job with the mop, washed some sliding doors, did some more chores..and in between tried to cure my desktop of a Trojan virus..I never use it..but up popped the devil when I updated my scan..I remember getting rid of a Trojan right after I got the desktop..so I am hopeful.
I am working on it again today...If this doen’t work..I am unplugging it and waiting to read up on solutions.
My allergies are still very apparent in the mornings but I am no longer congested..and I feel so good compared to last week.
Oh, goodie! I want to see the albino deer! Thanks, jaycee. I'm glad you like the opening pic today. She's such a pretty doe.
LOL at trying to 'listen' to Do Re Mi! I thought about linking a YouTube to it, but didn't find the perfect one - I only tried to listen to one of Julie Andrews' because it was less than 3 minutes, but it had too many other voices in it, too. Didn't like it. Others were longer and didn't want to wait for them (one reason, it's not my favorite song in the world! LOL)
Thank you, GeeBee. Have been enjoying all your 'snow' talk and pics. :)
Thanks! Hope it warms up for ya before long.
We really haven’t had much winter this year...and NO
precipitation since last October. It’s “crispy” dry and
we have red-flag warnings nearly every day for wild fires.
Dogs seem to be crazy when it comes to skunks! LOL!
LOL! That is SO true!
I need to get dressed (yes, still in jammies) and get some things done. Back later!
Yep, you were right. She wasn't right for him, and she knew there was no spark there, at least on his side. Didn't she leave with class though? No bitterness and whining about "what is wrong with me?, why didn't he love me?, he's going to be sorry he didn't pick me", yadda, yadda.
IMO, Naomi needs to go next. I think he knows she is not ready for instant family responsibilities.
Poor Jason. I just don't see how he is going to make it through the end of this show. He was so distraught over having to send Stephanie home. He is a very sensitive guy, and I am sure that remembering what it felt like being rejected by DeAnna makes it even more difficult for him.
Where is DeAnna, anyway? Maybe she's not coming back after all?
Thanks for opening the doors today with that beautiful deer graphic, Billie.
Forgot to ping 313 - (and there are probably another 20 I am missing! Anybody else have this problem? I never deliberately leave names off - but don’t use a ping list, and just type in the names of all my buddies here from memory. Problem is - the memory is playing tricks on me lately.)
One of the cutest things ever written! And its sounds very true, too!
Yes, it looks like we are going to have a great...and warm...day!
The Legend Of The Wedding Ring
In a far off country many centuries ago,
A kind young king was married to a princess he loved.
Together they lived happily
Until they learned one day that duties were to force
The king to journey far away.
One night, before he left,
He tossed some pebbles into a moonlit pool
On the palace grounds
As he sat thinking of his lovely Queen.
Something wonderful occurred to him
As the lovely ripples widened,
From where the little pebbles had fallen.
The next day,
Remembering the glistening circles he had seen,
He had a gold ring made
To fit the finger of his Queen.
“There is no ending or beginning
To the circle of this band”,
The King said as he slipped it on her finger,
“And that is why I have chosen this golden ring
To be a pledge to you-
My love will last through all eternity.”
And so, since that time,
A golden ring has been a symbol
Of the beauty of devotion
And the beauty of the endlessness of love.
A day early for WWF but since I will be gone most of tomorrow, here is pix of Josy jumping for snowball & FReeper Wheelbarrow. Bill will be moving the end of this month to a group home in NJ. we will all miss him, including the pups. This is NOT a move he wants & it is going to be very difficult for him
Yorkie , how is the patient doing?
Cast off this past Friday (BIG TGIF?). Still have a few months of limited use & exercises to get the flexibility / strength back but it is nice to soak in tub & type with TWO HANDS
We have to spray here, too. Religiously, and start early. :(
The guys will start spraying ours as soon as they start leafing out, sometime next month. It’s so cool to see them grow! kinda sad to sell them and know most will end up dead because people won’t take care of them. I have a hard time letting go of my babies! LOL
One of our older customers lost his in a row of rutabagas. He was distraught. He’d been married something like 75 years. He came back to the garden center and told us about it. My boss, quick thinker that he is, said so-and-so has a metal detector. They got him, went back to the rutabaga patch, and found it.
Such a symbol, and it means so much. Not that you can’t go out and buy a new one any day of the week, but it’s not the same.
Have a great day!
Too funny! I’ve seen it before, but it makes me laugh every time!
Sorry about your pup. :( We lost one just before Thanksgiving. ((((HUGS))))
I love to “let it snow”!
I do feel a bit silly doing it if the sky is brilliant blue in the snow picture..LOL
Dolly, it seems that you have had that cast for a year! I am glad you finally had it removed! Congratulations!
My little Lindy is falling less - but, her little hind legs are like limp noodles, and it is difficult for her to get around. (She doesn’t get ‘babied’, either. That is the hard part for me.)
I hope Bill adjusts quickly to his new surroundings. He will soon make many friends, and hopefully realize that this is a good move for him.
I LOVE that picture!
This poem makes me want some snow to play in!
Hi Billie :)
Thanks. It’s really coming down now. It looks pretty out. These snow days make me lazy. ;)
I'll bet Lady Jag or Dolly Cali would be happy to share with you! LOL!
The ivory gull fascinated me for a good half a day. It fascinates me how animal can actually prefer to live in such inhospitable climes.
Then, just to spin my brain even more, a chickadee came to the window here and alighted on an icicle to relax for a minute.
All your freepers are beloning to us!
I'm retired, so were's the party?
I gotta new PC
now I'm ready to use it!
The world'/s tallest hobbit is back with a new attitude ;o)
All liberal pranksters beware!
Hey Pippin! :)
How are you? Welcome back! Congratulations on retiring and your new PC!
Gee Bee, if you ever find a site (easy) to resize gifs, please let me know.
IIRC, I think Lady Jag has a good one. Maybe she will share!
I hopped aboard a space ship one day
and to Mars it took me away
I met an alien from Middle Earth
He could take me back in time to Earth
Now I'm stuck and out of luck
I seen Darks riding a buck
Ten came Billie and Amy along the way
a hobbit passed me by the way
In time I saw a winsome thing
A timeship driven by a Time Lord of the Ring!
That is so funny and so TRUE! I sent it out to some of my email contacts. They will get a kick out of it too.
Welcome back, stranger with-a-new-attitude! The party is right HERE!
How are you doing?
I’m doing pretty good. Thanks! :)
Sorry to hear about Wheelbarrow's move. It is hard on our old folks when they feel they are being displaced, even if it is a move for the better. I know he will miss you terribly. I think you have been a blessing in his life, and that probably goes both ways.
