While browsing online today I came across some cheerful accessories to share.
Recovering from a four day weekend Wednesday, May 27 2009
Uncategorized 4:14 pm
My husband and I took an extra day off to have a four day weekend. We made a trip to visit several of our grandparents. After stopping to see hubby’s grandparents we continued down to my grandma’s house. She lives on a farm on the river with lots of trees and fields. While there we fed the neighbor’s calf that my grandma feeds twice a day. I lived right by my grandparents when I was little, so I used to spend a lot of time miking cows, feeding calves, and cuddling barn cats. It was nice to feed a baby calf again, they are too cute. My hubby and I took turns feeding him.
We also took a walk down to the creek. On our way back, this snake had slid across our path, blocking the road. It’s a poisonous copperhead too! We threw rocks at trying to get it to go away, but it just sat there and stared at us. Finally we inched around off the road and ran past it. We kept our eyes on the road on the way back to carefully watch out for more snakes.
Lovely Lilies Wednesday, May 27 2009

I’m so excited to see that my asiatic lilies have started to bloom. I just planted them this year and I thought they wouldn’t bloom until summer, but two of the four plants are bursting with color.
So far this seems to be a plant the rabbits don’t nibble on. Unfortunately, they appear to love phlox because they have all disappeared. Here’s a member of the guilty party. Don’t be fooled by the cute face.
Anyone else have to fight the rabbits with their garden?

Join the Club Friday, May 22 2009
If you haven’t signed up for Home Depot’s Garden Club it’s worth joining. They send e-mail newsletters every month with coupons for fertilizer, weed killer, and other products. Last year they even had buy one get one free plant coupons, and I’m hoping they will repeat that. Either way, its a way to learn more gardening tips, the right plants for your region, and even save a little money in the process.

We love eating out, but it is expensive so we usually only go when we have a gift card or a really good coupon deal. I love Ruby Tuesday’s chicken picatta and they are a great restaurant for mailing out coupons. They currently have a Buy one entree, get one free coupon available and good until June 2. So now we have an excuse to go out this weekend!
