I’m so excited and I just couldn’t wait to show you this picture!  Sydney and I had to make a little road trip this morning — Mallory forgot her lunch and mom doesn’t do anything during the day at all!  When we got back home and walked through the side yard, I was ecstatic!  The daylilies are blooming — WOO HOO!


By looks of things in a few days I should have a sea of orange.  I can hardly wait!  I will have some stamping for you later today — what I did have unfortunately can’t be used today.  So, I’m in the studio creating but wanted to share!

What a gorgeous day it is here today. I’ve been working in the studio most of the morning, but have nothing that I can show you. Sorry – you’ll get to see it later, but only if you are SCS Fan Club Members. I didn’t want to leave you without a picture or two today though. I took the puppy out earlier this afternoon for a little frolic and couldn’t resist getting my camera.

First off, the Columbine are in bloom now. These are the wild ones I dug up from the river many years ago that just keep multiplying.


The Hostas and Astilbe are doing well and the Sedum is looking terrific. The Sedum is planted in one of my grandmothers concrete planters that always sat on the front porch when I was a little girl.


Sydney loves to frolic in the landscaping along the front walk and if she is in a playful mood, she lies in wait for you to walk by and then pounce on your feet. Here she is waiting for me to go by.



Well, I’m off to the tennis match and then a quick trip home to change and back up to school for Honor Society Induction tonight. Oh the joys of having a graduating senior.

Happy Monday! I’m sorry I have no stamping for you today. As some of you know, my oldest daughter had an accident at work yesterday morning and I’ve been running around making doctor appointments and and trying to get radiology reports faxed here and there. For those of you who don’t know, my oldest daughter, Kate, was diagnosed with epilepsy close to two years ago. We believe she may have had a seizure yesterday morning, fell off the stool she was sitting on and the concrete floor came up and met her in the face. When she finally woke up, her employer had already called EMS, who arrived within a few minutes time and they were quickly on their way to ER. They were able to call us once Kate came too, and EMS was practically out the door with her. I have to say, when I finally got to the ER and saw my daughter lying there my heart fell to the floor. She was such a pitiful sight. Thank goodness this happened very shortly after she arrived at work and not while she was driving. Luckily she came away with only a broken nose, a few gashes from her glasses (7 stitches) and a busted lip.

Anyhoo, in lieu of stamping today, and after seeing Leslie’s pictures of her garden over on her blog, I walked around the yard a few minutes ago and took a few pictures. Spring has come to the Ohio Valley!!! These are the last of my daffodils, they were in full bloom a few weeks ago. But, what I did find was my lilac bush and weeping cherry tree in bloom today! Ah I love spring time. Now just need to find the time to get out and dig in the dirt a little. Nothing rejuvenates me more than playing in the dirt and getting those first plants out for the growing season — I always feel like I’ve come home!
