Look at this gorgeous Lenten Rose that Brent and Becky’s Bulbs is offering.  It just looks like Easter to me!!!

Today we have an appointment to have our new fiber optic cable connected.  
 
For the past few days we have had no internet, so I have been doing everything using my phone.  It will be so nice to get back to normal.  And it will be faster.  
 
See you soon.
 
 
HAPPY ALMOST SPRING!!!

Yep.  It’s winter here.  We’ve had some warm days, some rainy days, some windy days, and now we are getting COLD!!  
 
We may even get some snow this week.  That would be OK with me.  
 
If we do, I’ll get you a couple good pictures of the garden and the mountains.
 
HAPPY WINTER!!!

We woke up to snow on Wednesday, just a dusting here.  
 
By the afternoon it was warm enough to go for a walk, and all our snow was gone.  When we got to the top of the mountain we could see that Franklin got a bunch of snow.  See it in the distance?
 
Maybe we’ll get some more.  
 
 
HAPPY JANUARY!!!

I love getting out the Christmas decorations, and sprinkling them around the house.  No tree again this year, but lots of snowmen and poinsettias.
 
The Santas will get put away in January, but the snowmen and red silk flowers can stay until spring.
 
 
MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

The same day that I posted an article about my favorite Holly tree, we were chatting with a neighbor.  He is on the well committee, and told us that he learned from an old timer here that the best place to dig a well is close to a holly tree.
 
Not sure WHY, but apparently it works, because that is one of the criteria that Cherokee Well Drilling uses when looking for well sites.  I thought it was kinda interesting, and thought you would too.  
 
Now you know where to start digging your well.  ;)
 
 
HAPPY DECEMBER!!!
