God knew what He was doing when He sent a gentle breeze and brought a lovely butterfly to set my heart at ease. The happiness of your friendship and the gentleness of your words have touched my life in special ways and now I feel assured. Thank you for your loyalty and for reading everyday. I only hope you find things to make a happy day.

A Little at a Time...It'll Get Done
I was in the mood to work in the yard when I woke up this morning, but that feeling left almost as soon as my foot hit the floor. I had told Joe that I was going to go out and plant my anemones this morning, before the rain. He prodded me a little (sometimes I think we should get a cattle prod :) so I dragged myself out to the garage. I wanted to get these in the ground, so that they can establish some roots before winter. I was going to plant them in my little side garden, where I have some herbs planted. It's just a small, narrow garden that follows the house from the front corner about half way down the house. Next year (there I go again) I'm going to plant Cut and Come again Zinnias from this garden to the corner.I was so pleased with the showy zinnias planted at the mailbox, Lately I've seen a couple of women picking a flower or two from this little display. The first picture is what the garden looked like, when I started out. Kind of a messy little place with plants overgrown. I cut off the dead flowers...the Susans... and pulled up some Ajuga. I made room for the three plants.
