Morning Glory

Finally!!! It is starting to bloom :o)
This is suppose to be a multicolor plant so I will post another picture when it gets there.

10 more days until tour and think I am ready, just last minute tweaking to do, keep watering, cut the lawn and mulch one more area. Friday night is set up and starts Saturday at 9.
Wouldn't you know it, rain forcast for the morning and sunshine in afternoon. Storm the next day, oh well, that could change.

~~Have a wonderful day~~

Pics from Antique Mercantile Tent Sale

What a blast!!!!

 If anyone looks at this pic below and knows who I am talking about don't you think he could be Dr. Fasbinders twin?
These are two of the sweetest vendors in the mall. Going to look at his gardens this week and I will share some pics.

 88 degrees. 
The lady below in white t-shirt with her hair up is my daughter Amy.
 View from top floor.
Sold out fast.
 Next 2 pics are my booth.
I did 20% off today only.

 These 3 items below were my purchases, for the garden of course!
My fav is this  primitive childs chair I am using as a birdbath.
 Antique birdcage 
 Birdhouse made from pallet wood

Thats all for now :0)
Time to move the sprinkler.
Praying for rain tomorrow.

Breathtaking heat lighting show.....

This is the view from our screened porch last night a sunset.
A very slow moving cloud that lit up the sky.
Enlarge the photo and you can see the streaks of lighting my hubby captured on his phone.
We did not hear any thunder with it and best light show I have seen in a long time. I remember as a child sleeping on our screened porch and watching these at night.

Then the Strawberry Moon came!!!
Did not get a picture of that but have seen pics on other blogger posts.
And no rain, as my sister would say " drier than a popcorn fart"

Time to get more weeding done....have a wonderful day friends.

Welcome Summer!!!!

Loving the hot weather we are having here in Michigan.
Yesterday was a perfect day to wash the siding on our house.
Look what I uncovered under a sign hanging near my porch.
Love when they chirp so I hope they do come back.

Another hot day today with sunshine.
Spring and Summer are my favorite time of year.

We did manage to get a couple hours ride on the Honda Goldwing last night and stopped at the A & W to have a rootbeer float. Yummy with this heat.
We are planning a trip on Honda coming up but will probably just stay in Michigan.

Enjoy your Summer!!!

Took a few closeup pictures but cloudy and raining so thought I would post these. We need the rain badly so no complaints.

~~Have a wonderful day friends~~

evening entertainment :o)

I love watching animals with their babies!!

These are fields by our house planted with wheat and soybeans this year. Usually its corn and hay, my favorite because the harvest is so facinating to watch and the smells are heavenly.

~Hope you all had a fun weekend~

My Hens and Chicks plants have really bloomed this year. I have never seen the new growth like this before. Anxious to see what it turns into.

This carpet perennial is called Blue Stars and is spreading nicely but the picture did not capture the vibrant blue.
This garden area by our milkhouse has low growing carpet varieties and turning out really cute. Good thing plants can handle dry because we did not get one drop of rain yesterday that was predicted! 

~Have a beautiful day~

Today would have been my sisters 74th birthday.
She has been gone 5 weeks now but I still feel her prescence everyday and miss her so much.
This picture was taken on her birthday, the year they moved back to Michigan for the summer. My husband made the claypot man for her.
I have one and she always wanted one and she was very surprised.
What a fun day that was.
I feel so blessed I had her for a sister.
~~~~Love Forever~~~
