Japanese Beetle War

Mama and PJ are fighting the japanese beetles. You go girls!

Our newspaper ran an article about frosting shots. Never heard of such a thing, but I was so impressed by this trend that I went right into the kitchen and made a batch of the chocolate frosting. Yum!

Mrs. Graye's

I went with mama and PJ to their favorite greenhouse. I was wishing I had the car with me, because I would have loaded it up with plants! Love those wall baskets. By the way, check out Rachel's blog to see what Betsy's doing these days.
