Animals, Food, and Plants

Is there something in my teeth?

Some friends I talk to regularly.
They live behind our house.






Our property on the right.
The horses live on the left.

Some food I've made recently...

Fried chicken...

Crab & Avocado Sushi Rolls...

Easter Lemonade Pie...

Taco Lineup...

Yum.

Easter Dinner in the Park.  Heh-heh.




Iced Coffee on the Back Porch.
Finally...Porch Weather!

And planting weather...(Mosquito Plant/Citronella Plant above)

Rosemary...

I don't know on the left, another Citronella on the right.
I was so happy to find some citronella this year.
It gets so big and beautiful and smells divine!

Flowers still left to plant.

Not pictured, but planted: 2 Rhododendrun, 2 Hydrangeas, 12 red Geraniums, 3 Snapdragons, and some ground cover. Potatoes were planted in the garden. It's still too early here for the rest of the veggies.

I'm cleaning house today. I rearranged the furniture in our bedroom and cleaned that room last night. I sure do collect a lot of crap in there. Today is the living room vacuuming, kitchen, bathroom, and dining room floors to sweep and mop, and the dusting.

And I'm also trying to learn a new video editing program so I can edit my videos for YouTube. It's hard. My brain hurts.

Are you sure there's nothing in my teeth?
Cuz it sure feels like it.

Peace.

  3. Your flowers are pretty. I wonder if you could please tell me the name of the three little blue flowered plants on the table? I had a pot of those last year in a big flower pot and it got so big and pretty and lasted all summer even through the heat. There was no plant label or stake in it when I bought it, so I don't know what name to look for/ask for to get it again this year. It looked very similar to the blue flowered plants that you have.

    I have been enjoying the videos that you have done so far.

    There is such pretty scenery where you live.

    Oh, by the way, I think Sammi may have a teensy little something in her teeth. Maybe Sammi was trying to use grass for tooth floss.

  5. Lots and lots of good food in this post. Your flowers are great too. We're still below freezing on some nights both here and at the lake so no flowers yet. I'm so glad you're enjoying spring Pammy Sue.
    Blessings,

  6. I'm jealous of your gardening. Since we're selling the house, all I did was clean up the garden, no planting this year. I'm going to miss the fresh tomatoes. We have horses next door too and I love watching them. Enjoy the beautiful Spring weather and outdoors :)

  10. Great post as usual! Always love hearing from you and seeing what you've been up to! That food looks so good...and you're making it really tough on me as had a tooth pulled last Wed. and can only eat soft foods for 10 days! I'm so starved for pizza, fries, pizza, meat, did I say pizza????? argh.... and those tacos about did me in! You're lucky to be able to have rhododendrons there, they won't grow here in Madras.. too hot and too cold and too dry and too windy I guess. I still have to clean up all the dead stuff in our garden tubs. Haven't done a blog post for a month.. have had company for the last 10 days and before that, house cleaning, prep for company, etc. etc. etc. At least my house is pretty clean for now! Enjoy all those beautiful flowers! Hugs... Marilyn

  11. I love your blog. It's always a treat to see a new posting and especially to see your pups featured, too!
    Sammy girl looks like she has a chaw of grass now and then just like our Rosie. Did you know they do it to settle their tummy. I like your four legged neighbor friends. We had friends like them at our former home. We'd purchase those huge bags of carrots just special for them. They'd always come a running because they knew we had treats.
    Where did you purchase those Mosquito Plant/Citronella Plant's? I could use them in my front yard to keep cats out of my bark dust. The neighborhood cats love to use my flower beds at their personal litter box, arrgh! Lately I've been chopping up my orange peels and scattering them over the flower beds as I hear cats don't like the smell of citrus ~ so far so good, but it's a battle of wits to keep them out.
    That's a beautiful park. What a nice place to have a picnic or just sit and read. I bet in the summer it would be a great place to spend all day in the shade.
    Take care and I look forward to more postings! Hugs!

    1. I found the citronella plant at Walmart this year! They were over by the herbs and tomato plants. I think they disappear really quickly and are hard to find anywhere later in the spring & summer. I hope you can find them. You'll love them. I read that they're in the geranium family and get little flowers on them that look like geraniums, but I've never seen one flowering in person. They just get big and are so healthy-looking and a pretty green.

    2. Thank you Pammy Sue, I'm going to hop over to Walmart tomorrow and see if they have them. I sure need something to try and keep those kitties out of my flower bed. Thanks again!
