Learning to Garden

I know little if anything about planting, gardens, flowers, plants, soil, etc. Thank goodness for friends. I knew my patios needed some attention, plant wise, but I didn’t have a clue as to how to start nor what I wanted. A friend, who has had experience with soil of the earth projects, joined me at… Continue reading Learning to Garden

Check out… Continue reading Travel Theme–Garden

I came too near a rose-bush this week and got pricked..several times. Which led me to ponder the various ‘pricks’ I’ve encountered in my 7 plus decades of living.  And there have been lots of such injuries. Some pricks are minor nuisances that sting for a moment and then are quickly forgotten. I think those… Continue reading Those Pesky Pricks in Life

Garden Cats…and Ol’ Blue

I’ve just discovered Dutch Goes the Photo blog and the weekly Tuesday Photo Challenge. This week’s challenge is ‘Animals’, so I decided to feature some cats I found on my recent visit to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. I know…maybe not the animals you had in mind, but you said to have fun. Momma Cat watches… Continue reading Garden Cats…and Ol’ Blue
