Flower Thought

Today I thought it would be fun to do a Flower Thought!

I have been out working in the yard planting flowers and the garden.  The weather has been wonderful…until today!

It has turned off cold today and the weather forecast is saying to cover our tomatoes and tender plants!!! 

It is the middle of MAY…for heaven’s sake…and we are having a frost warning!

Don’t you love this little thought.  

As women we tend to compare ourselves to each other and we need to stop doing that and  “JUST BLOOM!”

With spring in full bloom and summer just around the corner, there are going to be lots of flowers blooming everywhere.  I hope that when you look at those flowers, you will remember this thought and

 Bloom Where You Are!

On another note, my husband and I just got back from a little trip to Las Vegas.  We went to a Celine Dion show and to LeReve.  Both were really good shows and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!  The weather was warm and it felt good to get away together for a few days!  We also spent a few days in sunny St. George before coming home!  I love going on road trips with my husband.  He was my own personal chauffeur to quilt shops, malls, eating out and sight seeing!

Thanks for Visiting!  Remember to blossom today!

Fairy Garden 2017

I have been working out in the yard this last week planting some of my garden and some of my flower pots.  I also had 2 of my grandchildren for 3 days and they wanted to help.  We bought some new things for the Fairy Garden 2017 and some new plants!

They were so excited to put it all together and I think it turned out darling!fairy garden 2017We added a few new things from last years fairy garden.

fairy garden 2017The main thing was the addition of this little pond, stream and bridge!  My granddaughter found these crystals and we thought it would fun to add this to our garden!

It adds so much color and dimension!fairy garden 2017My grandson picked out the gnome!  It is a fun whimsical flair!

Succulents are the main plants in the garden.  We have a cactus that looks like a flowering bush.    Another succulent that looks like a tree on one corner of the house.  And others to add great texture and colors!fairy garden 2017My youngest granddaughter picked out the fairy friends.  She loved that one!fairy garden 2017The mailbox, bike, table and chairs and stone pathway are all from last year.  Also the house is from last year too!fairy garden 2017So…welcome to the garden!

A fairy garden is a fun way to try out different plants and let the kid in you come back to life!

I am new to fairy gardening, but have enjoyed learning how to put one together. Of course collecting fun little trinkets to put out in the garden is half of the fun.  What do you put in your fairy garden?

Thanks for Visiting!

It snowed yesterday, here in Utah…and it was a little bit depressing.  We have had some beautiful spring-like days where the sun was shining, so to go back to cold snowy day is just yuck!

I decided that we needed a little bit of spring back, so when I was at Costco I picked up a bunch of beautiful flowers!spring flower vases Continue reading
