The other day, during that bee-u-ti-ful near-60 degree weather, I found this little shoot of pansy climbing its way out of the compost pile. Back in November, we buried a pot of daffodil bulbs with pansies into the compost pile. I did sneek a little peek under the leaves to find those pansies in great shape. Note to self: next year, more pots in the compost pile:)
I have the best mom in the world. This blog began as a way to send her pictures from the garden, but it's grown into a letter for a whole bunch of people that I love and some I don't even know. Thanks for stopping by to visit. Here's a little e-mail exchange we had recently:
Sometime before Christmas To: Kynda From: Mama Hi honey. . . put some $ in the BK account and some to pay on your cook-top. I want to own at least a part of one burner so Mark can make me chili on it. I love you all Christmas and every day. Sometime after the New Year: To Mama From Kynda I cashed your check this morning, so your burner is all paid for :)
thank you so much!
I love you mama--past heaven!
So the kitchen is changing again. New cooktop and new PaInT :) Mark, also known as TBHITWWW, has painted the cabinets for me. . . again. And I don't think he's ever said ". . and this is the last time . . . " I told you he's the best :)
I am blessed. Thank you, thank you to the universe and its Creator.
This is what can happen if I go downstairs to clean up my space. I might find an orchid determined to bloom despite my neglect. And I might find a little better container than the crappy plastic thing it came in, along with some leftover wire and ribbon. I need to go down there more often! I hope it will like its new home in my office at work . . .
