Silver Sunday

It's finally feeling like Spring here in the Midwest so everywhere we look there are people working in their yards. Mr. Blessing and I have been dragging the outdoor tables, chairs, benches and other pretties from their Winter hiding places. Yesterday several of the neighbor kids came over and helped spread new soil and plant wildflowers. The breezes carried most of the seeds right out of their sweet little fists but it was fun to watch them. I guess it doesn't really matter what we plant... We all know that Neighbor Bob sneaks over and fixes all my gardening faux pas while I'm not looking. Goodness, I love this place. Love silly Neighbor Bob. Love that the yard is already filled with neighborhood kids. Love that we all gather for watermelon parties, laughing & talking way into the mosquitio-y nights.


  1. Love your photo, my mother always used them when I was growing up , she loved fresh flowers! That is a wonderful verse in Proverbs !
    Have a blessed day !

  10. I love neighbors and kids and flowers and watermelon parties...can I come live with you?

  11. Sounds like bliss! Love those little flower frogs too.

  12. Love the flower frogs. I have several around the house, just the best "whatever" piece of old junk, you know? We are a month away from things really turning green here. In fact is calls for mixed rain and snow over the next few days. The only good news is that it is really warm, wet and won't stick for but a few minutes, so anyway, our outdoor goodies are still hidden away, waiting, waiting.....
