This was the year that I really wanted to grow a vegetable garden. 
I tried in the past but the weeds took over.


Our yard isn't big but we have plenty of room for raised beds.

We graveled the lawn in the back of the yard and added pots and two raised beds.


Beets, dill, carrots, and lots of lettuce are in the two beds.
The pots have the herbs; chives, rosmary, parsley, basil (lots of basil) 
and of course tomatoes.


We decided to take away the back half of our lawn,
 on the other side of the walk way
to make room for four more raised beds.



We planted two Pink Lady apple trees, broccoli, zucchini, red onions, strawberries, red peppers, and more lettuce.

And my roses...
love my roses!


After working in the garden, we really enjoy our patio, 
looking at our salad for the next day. 

But my favorite type of plants
 are the Volunteers.

This little pansie grew all on it's own,
in the sidewalk that goes down to our fence.


 "Build houses and live in them, plant gardens and eat their produce."

Ila’s Birthday Tea Party

"Mom, can I have a Tea Party for my Birthday?"
Ila May was turning 11 and 
Kimmy wanted to make it fun and special.

Kimmy then called her mother in-law, who is a Picker.
Mema collected everything for this Tea Party.

When each girl arrived, she recieved gloves, pearls to wear, plus, and a tea cup to use and take home.

The food table was full of goodies.

Kimmy and Ila May.

Each place setting was colorfully coordinated and
perfectly set.

The inside of the tent was fitted with a chandelier and 
lace curtians that flowed in the wind.

All the girls were thrilled to be at a real Tea Party.

 Mema, IlaMay and me.

My absolute, favorite picture of Ila May,
waiting for her friends to arrive
before her Tea Party.

"For I know the plans I have for you,"  delclares the Lord, "plans to prosper you, not to harm you, plan to give you hope and a future."

his mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness."
