So Much to Tell!


This picture was last Saturday May 7th in Auburn Indiana. It was the first Farmers Market Day and I was there helping my sister Linda sell her baked goods. We got an early start because we didn’t want to miss anything in case it was going to be packed. We arrived at 6:30 a.m. and had to check to see if we were at the wrong area. There was not a soul there. We had our pick of the spots.


Here she had all of her tasty baked goods all ready to sell. Tables up, signs up, and we are on it. Other vendors did show up but just a handful. I am sure it will grow as the weeks go on. I will be helping her often and she will be there almost every Saturday with freshly baked goods. It was a good day and people bought and appreciated her scones, bagels, breads and pies.


Our geese families made their debut out on the pond. There are quite a few goslings and I just love to watch them.  I am an animal lover, especially babies.


Swimming away and staying close to Mom and Dad.


Tuesday was a big day, because I got to see my new Transit Connect pull in on the Car Carrier. It was the last stop, and it was the lone ranger on the truck. I love it, love it, love it. It rides well and is going to be so handy for traveling to my art fairs.


Race Red is the color, and it makes me smile when I look at it. I am sure I am smiling when I’m driving also.


It came at just the right time….actually we were a little worried and had plan B in case it didn’t. I will be showing my art at the Art Fair in Wyoming Ohio, which is down by Cincinnati on Sunday May 15th. Please click this link to view the web site. My information says there will be 190 artists.


If you come to visit and see a Red Transit Connect you know you are in the right place. There are not too many around that look like this. We were saying at the dealership, this vehicle has been on a cruise, on a train and a car carrier. It’s logged a lot of miles from Spain, but when it came off the truck it only had 5 miles on the odometer. (I did say that I loved this didn’t I?) 🙂


My sweet bleeding hearts are blooming. Somehow I lost two plants though. I used to have three. That happens sometimes.


Look at these Johnny Jump-ups now, are they not the bomb. I just love them too!


My new geraniums have good buds on them and are starting to bloom. That rustic bench was a good investment. It looks really nice on our porch.


The cats like the cat grass that I have growing. These were old seeds that I had, so the grass is not full and lush. Good enough to chew on though.


They pull it out and make of bit of a mess, easy enough to clean up though. It makes me happy seeing them enjoy it.


Alas, the newest picture taken today of the baby house finches. Mother has a full nest to say the least of birds and poo! Will have to get the hose out when they are all grown and flown the nest. Mother Robin is too high or I would have liked to get a picture inside her nest also. I had a really nice Mothers Day Sunday with my family. It was such a beautiful day. I hope your week is bringing you a lot of interesting and fun things to talk about. Thanks for stopping!

Spring Show


Whenever I look at a bleeding heart I think of my grandmother. She had bought one of these plants for me me in another house which I left when we moved. I had to have another, in fact I have 3 others and think they are so beautiful. This one is right outside of my studio window so I can look at it all the time.


These little johnny jump up are also right outside of the studio window. They are all over the place and this was my intention when I threw seeds down last year. Their little faces are so sweet!


The Bradford Pears in the neighborhood are putting on a good show, it’s too bad they stink so much! I wonder why they were made that way?


When we got this little tree it was just a stick. I planted it in a bucket then moved it to the ground only to have to move it again. This is the final place. I believe it is called a service berry and it seems to like the area, It has some flowers on it.


I am thrilled to see these little tiny flowers on this redbud. I have had a heck of a time growing these trees. This one was moved to it’s final area also and though slow, is promising. These trees are so lovely when blooming, they look like lace.


I was at Lowe’s the other day and came across this bird feeder and couldn’t pass it up. Is it not the cutest thing?? There has been a certain red-winged blackbird singing and eating everyday. I am glad to see they are enjoying it.


The neighbors put up this great new birdhouse for the purple martins that are sure to show up again. Those little guys are so territorial you can feel the wind whoosh over your head when walking into the yard. They are great bug catchers. The neighbors always put out a really nice garden of which they share the bounty. Thanks for going on the spring walk with me, come back again!
