Grow where you are planted
As I write this I am in Iowa and enjoying spending time with my folks and looking forward to this upcoming weekend when we will be celebrating Christmas and the 40th Anniversary of Mom adopting the 3 of us kids. I can't imagine 2 weeks before Christmas suddenly have a 1,2, and 3 year old. Tomorrow Betsy and David, my husband Wayne and Chris should all arrive. Will be the first time in a while that we have all been here together (usually Wayne is missing because of deployments or such).
I thought I would try to spend a little of my time here trying to catch up a little bit on my blogging which is so far behind as to be ridiculous. I apologise to those who like to keep up with what is going on in my life.
This fall Wayne and I have been putting some time into trying to get a start on the landscaping for the house. The builders put in some plants and we got to keep some of the trees in front and back but we want to give the place personality and as we should be living in the house for quite a while we finally have a chance to put in flowers I have wanted to add for years. The photo above is one of the 3 boxes of flowers and bulbs that my Mom sent to us. Some of the plants are cuttings from plants that were my Grandma's and the rest are from Mom's garden which means there will be flowers from 3 generations of the women in our family.
In part 2 I will include more photos and more of what we planted.
