Meet Bella

 This is Bella. She is the newest member of our family. A Mom of one of my students, Mrs. C, found her on the road on their way to school. Her litter mate was already run over. At first, I said that I didn't need another cat.  Mrs. C took her home. I thought about the kitty all day. I texted my husband and then called him. I couldn't believe that he agreed with adding her to our family!
 The next day was Saturday. I met the C family at the vets office to pick up Bella. She had an injured leg. The vet didn't believe that it was broken, just badly bruised. She continues to limp a bit on it, but it doesn't seem nearly as sore.
 She is so sweet and playful. She and Rascal (last years kitty rescue, more here, and here) are starting to play a bit. THAT is entertaining.
I love the way she purrs when I touch her or talk to her.

I'm sure I will be sharing many more Bella photos in the future.
Y'all come back,

Back again!

 Hello again. It has been quite a while since I've posted. I've been MIA for several reasons. First I have been busy. Second, my laptop died. Busy, with gardening, crocheting,  new chicks, end of school year, photography, and a new kitten. I will share the kitten and chicks soon. As the photo shows, my gardening gloves were quite worn out. I had been unable to find the same kind locally. My sweet hubby ordered 4 pairs for me.
The first pair is already getting broken in. Back to the dead laptop. Luckily, it died AFTER I had edited and saved the photos I took for a local church's confirmation group to a flash drive. David decided that we should try a MacBook Pro since I've been through several PC laptops. It is awesome, but I have much to learn. Most of the old programs that I used don't work on the Mac, so I am learning to use new programs. I'm glad that school will be out in one week, so that I will have more time to devote to getting it all figured out! I've also been working on the afghan I am crocheting. I will share that soon as well.
For now, here are some flowers that are blooming in my garden.         A Gerbera.
A tropical series Canna.
A Butterscotch Ruffles daylily.
More daylilies.
Strawberry Candy daylily.
Ming Porcelain daylily. I also ordered and planted some daylilies from the Paynes in the Grass Daylily Farm.

This and That

May is a busy month for teachers and gardeners! Being both, I have not found much time for blogging! I want to share a little of this and that.
 I love this little plaque that I recently received as a bunco prize! I am so blessed to be part of such a lovely group of ladies!
 Blooms are everywhere in my garden! This is one of my favorite daylilies-Ming Porcelain. The color is so soft and velvety. It also has a nice fragrance.Be warned, I have many favorite daylilies!
 Besides being hooked on daylilies, I am also falling in love with irises. This is 'Ann Chowning'. I have recently added 'Sinfonietta' and 'Full Eclipse'. I think they have probably already bloomed this year, so I will have a long wait to see them bloom in my garden. Patience is a good thing in the garden!
 We added this urn water feature a few weeks ago. The vitex behind it is starting to bloom as well. It is also known as Texas Lilac.
I neglected to trim back my antique roses this year, so they are quite wild and leggy looking! I will just have to focus on the blooms! Hopefully, I will not neglect my blog as well and be back soon!
Y'all come back,


What kind of flower are you?
